Tasmanian Artists: Exhibition Entries

The Gallery of Small Works Exhibition is a fundraiser to help boost the cultural coffers of the east coast and the area of Triabunna and Orford in particular. There is a group in the area working towards the building of a new living history museum and working community arts studio in Triabunna. They have been given the land and UTAS is currently putting together a feasibility study and concept design for the building.
A commission from the sale of each painting at the exhibition will be collected, and part of the proceeds will be donated to the development and support of the museum and arts studio project. The organisers have had incredible support already, with over 200 canvases going out to Tasmanian artists. Triabunna is struggling with the change necessary to survive and this is one step Tasmanians can take to support the renewal of a region.
Sue Nettlefold is the administrator and teacher of the Triabunna Painters Studio. Classes are held Wednesday between 9.00am and 12.30pm. She is also curator of The Gallery of Small Works Exhibition to be launched 4 January 4 2013. For more information email Sue Nettlefold or phone 0429 326 780.
