Tassie wilderness through new eyes

Experience Tasmania’s wilderness through new eyes at the Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery.

The Gallery’s winter/spring program showcases Tasmanian artists who all highlight our state’s natural environment in different ways.

Running until November, the program encourages audiences to think about their place in the natural world.

“It’s important to reflect upon the natural beauty that we’re so lucky to be surrounded by here in Tasmania,” RACT Destinations Chief Operating Officer Andrew Paynter said.

“It’s remarkable to see how each artist represents the state through their work.

“Looking at Tasmania from fresh perspectives can inspire us to escape the everyday and get out there and enjoy nature.

“Luckily for those visiting the Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery, the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is right on your doorstep, just waiting to be explored.”

The winter/spring program will feature the following artists:

Critical Points by Paul Murphy

7 June – 7 October

With a strong interest in environmental change, specifically the relationship between man-made and natural materials, Paul Murphy’s Critical Points is a response to understanding site.

Making reference to the rock formations of Cataract Gorge, Murphy’s clay sculptures explore the connection between the formations’ natural creation and their current cultural significance to Tasmanians.

Otherworldliness by Pamela Horsley

15 June – 29 September

Inspired by her home on the Great Western Tiers, Pamela Horsley is in constant awe of the Tasmanian wilderness.

As she bushwalks, she takes in the natural sights, sounds and smells, and reflects upon those who have walked before her.

These experiences have made their way into Otherworldliness, a collection of Monotype prints that explore the dynamic relationship between the land and the people that inhabit it.

Everything and Nothing by Adam Gibson

21 June – 13 October

A photographic meditation on winter at Cradle Mountain, Everything and Nothingencapsulates Adam Gibson’s search for places that have a magical sense of emptiness.

Shot this season, Gibson focuses on landscapes that have been overlooked and abstract moments that embody the characteristics of Tasmania’s darker months.

Enchanted Places by Gaynor Peaty and Julie Irvin

12 July – 11 November

Enchanted Places is a joint exhibition by Gaynor Peaty and Julie Irvin that captures their response to Tasmania’s landscape.

Through the art of printmaking, Enchanted Places reflects their personal journeys and travels, as well as the rhythms and patterns of nature that inspire them both.

Perspective by David Murphy

12 July – 12 November

Inspired by the diversity of Tasmania’s wild, rugged coastlines and ancient rainforests, David Murphy uses photography to share these beautiful parts of the world with his audience.
