Adrift

1 May - 30 June

An exhibition by SAC Resident Artist Melanie McCollin-Walker “To be lost is nothing to fear, for everything that is lost is on the path to being found” – author unknown “Since moving to Tasmania in 2017, I have struggled at times.

The Night Gobblers

1 June - 30 June

In this installation, Donna Ritchie explores how we illuminate the dark constantly. And at what cost. The Night Gobblers are the monsters that steal our darkness. They are the lights themselves, the monster machines that generate the light and the monster money munchers that make us pay for the light. The Night Gobblers represent the ever expanding sources of light pollution, that diminish our perception of the night skies, increasingly in our cities and suburban areas. This “gobbling up” of…

I am drawn to…

Where To Now

2 July - 31 July

Images of refugees bombard us – on the television news; through our online news sites; while flicking through a newspaper. But how much do we look and what is it we see? Emerging artist Tania Price sources her paintings from media photographs intended to report on the global refugee crisis and related issues, asking the viewer to consider what happens when these ubiquitous images are translated through paint and through the hand of the artist. As part of a PhD…

A Tale or Two
from Pontville |
lower midland grasslands

3 August - 31 August

An exhibition by SAC Resident Artist Grace Garton. My first impression of the grasslands was of an uninviting, dry, treeless and windy place. As the years went by I began to understand and appreciate this unusual habitat, as it revealed an abundance of tiny, delicate, wildflowers, lichens and grasses. This exhibition is a series of little events that left an enduring impression on the artist while care taking a small area of land located in the lower midlands. The series will include both…

A Cambodian Selfie

10 August - 15 August

Award winning artist Henrietta Manning considers the impact and superficiality of mass tourism through her own travels in Cambodia. What does it mean to travel? What is the worth of the images we take? Do we really see or are they only blind selfies? The word tourist was coined by the 17th century Grand Tour and today tourism is the world’s largest industry. The idea of travelling for the sake of curiosity and learning was a developing idea in the…
