First Impressions

1 April - 30 April

An exhibition by SAC Resident Artist Melanie McCollin-Walker, inspired by Bruny Island “Growing up on the island of Barbados I always day dreamt about traveling beyond its shores, hoping to discover all of the wonders the world had to offer.

Beastly Careless

20 April - 30 May

Donna Ritchie explores the processes of migration, displacement and discovery entwined with the search for belonging and home. Through her monster creations, Donna forms a partly autobiographical depiction of movement through various locations familiar to Tasmanians, and some less so. We trace the journey of these allegorical monsters and their eternal search for the “right spot” – a place of belonging. From South Hobart, all the way to Cradle Mountain, the search and engagement with various locations are explored. Using…

The Space Between

25 April - 6 May

There are spaces between things if you know where to look.  There is that moment between night and day when time is suspended between one passing and the other yet to come.  When the sun goes down the lines between reality and illusion become blurred, shadows disappear into the darkness, and anything becomes possible.  That space also exists in the threshold between life and death, in the fleeting moment when someone has a foot in each world before passing beyond…

Further Notes of Discord

9 May - 20 May

Commentaries on a fractious civilisation by Hugh Kerr. “I have always been preoccupied with themes of development, contemporary society, politics and the environment, both professionally, as a citizen and as a consumer of news. My move from the UK to Tasmania 7 years ago coincided this latest period of societal and political upheaval and I, like many others, have developed an unease with many of today’s big societal trends.
