We're very excited to be welcoming artist, Bobby-Z Lambert, to our talented group of Tasmanian artists. Come and experience his latest works depicting...
"...a mediation of colour and shapes designed to give people something happy in their day - every day. I have had the privilege to walk in all kinds of landscape and bush all over the world, communing with our ancient friends - the mountains, deserts and life-giving trees.
These paintings are based on various elements from places I've been in the Tassie bush, and the feelings this experience evokes - how I feel the bush is alive and talking happily to each other and to us."
Gallery Salamanca is currently exhibiting works by artist - Somrak Maneemai (Yen) - at the Hobart Airport.
The Hobart Airport and arts@work 'COLLECT on the Fly' program is a changing exhibition program of Tasmanian art from galleries participating in the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme.
The Hobart Airport has over 1.8 million travellers that pass through the terminal every year and the exhibition space provides an opportunity to present Tasmanian artwork outside of a traditional gallery environment.
The exhibition space is on either side of the check-in area and is seen by thousands of travellers every week.
The exhibitions also offer an opportunity to promote the COLLECT scheme which has been offering interest-free loans to Australian residents for nearly four years and has assisted in the purchase of over 1 000 artworks by Tasmanian artists. Currently about 27 per cent of the artwork purchased through the COLLECT scheme is to interstate travelers providing an economic boost to the local arts industry.
The exhibition will run through the end of May. So, make sure you sneak-a-peek before you (or it) take off.
A celebration of the arts, Gallery Salamanca's mission is to support and serve artists and craftspeople by engaging the community through the sale of arts and crafts and the promotion of exhibits in Hobart. Our purpose is to support, preserve and commemorate Australian, specifically Tasmanian, handmade works and their makers.
