Exhibition Opening Night

Please join us at the Devonport Regional Gallery for a special Exhibition Opening Night

Friday 2 August, 6.00pm

This special event will feature the official launch of two new exhibitions showing at the Devonport Regional Gallery:

Threads of Childhoods Past: Jennifer Frost and Jan Larcombe  |  LITTLE GALLERY 
Exhibition Dates: 27 July - 1 September 2019

Little Gallery Emerging Artists Program - In Threads of Childhoods Past, two artists with a shared childhood growing up in the remote area of Trowutta in the far North West coast of Tasmania in the 1950’s and early 1960’s have created art works based on their reflections of that time.


On Belonging(s): Alex Davern, Liam James, Amber Koroluk-Stephenson, Jessie Pangas  |  MAIN GALLERY 
Exhibition Dates: 3 August - 22 September 2019

On Belonging(s) brings together four Tasmanian artists who are exploring how we attach value to objects, and the role they play in the stories we tell about ourselves, both individually and communally. On Belonging(s) is a reflection on how we construct our identity, connect ourselves to place and engage with our possessions, both nostalgically and idealistically, as extensions of the self. Curated by Erin Wilson.

June 2019

The Swap across the Strait exhibition is now on display at Gallery Sunshine Everywhere (26 May – 22 June), featuring artworks by students of Sunshine College, Mother of God School and the Create and Make art classes of the Devonport Regional Gallery. The artworks are about what it’s like to live in Melbourne or Tasmania, and they also respond to questions and answers which have been sent backwards and forwards across the Strait.

All of the artworks will be travelling across the Bass Strait to Tasmania later in the year to be displayed at the Devonport Regional Gallery.

 

Below: An Echidna and a Tasmanian Devil travel to Melbourne on the Spirit of Tasmania to participate in the exhibition, and some of the artwork on display in Gallery Sunshine Everywhere.
