Presented by Images of Tasmania
This diverse annual exhibition of around 45 Tasmanian artists, represents seven decades of graduates from the UTAS School of Creative Arts in its various incarnations,
and presents individual mini exhibitions so that visitors can more fully appreciate artistic development through a series of works.
Images of Tasmania is a thriving, co-operative venture with its roots in Tasmanian tertiary art training. It presents a snapshot of current Tasmanian art practice encouraging gallery patrons to appreciate works in a variety of two and three–dimensional media encompassing literal, symbolic, decorative and conceptual approaches. In its broadest sense this mirrors the definition of ’Images’.
The disciplines of painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, digital imagery, sculpture, furniture design, ceramics, glass, and jewellery are represented. Exhibitors contribute to the diversity of the exhibition through the presentation of new & quality work whilst demonstrating an ongoing commitment to practice and professional training. The exhibition is entirely self-funded – without recourse to external sponsorship or advertising – and participating artists take on various roles in the setting-up, promotion and overall management of the exhibition.
“Images” flourishes today because it is annually refreshed and infused with ‘new blood’ drawn mainly from the gene pool of Art School graduates.
The expertise, experience and participation of preceding generations of Tasmanian School of Art graduates and associates provide continuity and stability for the enterprise.
