Esther Shohet's ~ It's all about MONA!


Esther Shohet Painting and Print ~ 'It's all about MONA!' - Gallery Salamanca

Whether you live here (lucky you) or are just visiting (lucky you too), you know and/or soon will find out that Hobart has really come alive since David Walsh's MONA (The Museum of Old and New Art) opened its doors in January 2011.

For those that don't know...MONA is an art museum located within the Moorilla winery on the Berriedale peninsula in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. It's the largest privately funded museum in Australia ~ exhibiting antiquities, modern and contemporary art from the David Walsh collection. Walsh has described the museum as a "subversive adult Disneyland" and that's exactly what it is.

Loved and not-so loved but always respected, MONA, is a wonderful contribution to Hobart. So, many, many thanks, David!

And many, many thanks to Esther for painting it in all its glory!
