There are two fantastic group shows (which I have work in) coming up very soon. They both open on the same night, but at opposite ends of the state. Make sure you get along to one!
♦ Vale of Belvoir, Tasmanian Land Conservancy Exhibition
03 December at 14:00 – Friday, 07 January 2011 at 17:00
The Wilderness Gallery @ Cradle Mountain
“In the shadow of Cradle Mountain the Vale of Belvoir stands alone as one of the only remaining grasslands of its kind in the world. It is the only surviving valley of its kind, unchanged since the time when glaciers covered much of highland Tasmania.
One of the University of Tasmania’s leading scientists Professor Jamie Kirkpatrick described it as “a place of global significance for its rich and dense marsupial carnivore fauna”. It is now owned and managed for conservation by the Tasmanian Land Conservancy.
This exhibition will explore ever widening ways of relating to the landscape of the Vale of Belvoir through the medium of photography.
The exhibition will feature some of Tasmania’s finest wilderness photographers as well as established and emerging fine art photographers. This exhibition will be a true survey of how photography can capture light upon the land. ”
There are many photographers involved in this exhibition; Rob Blakers, Paul Hoelen, Grant Dixon, Richard Jupe, Donna Bershoeff, Claire Needham, Jim Russell, Matt Newton, Simon Olding..to name a few.
Opening: Friday 3 December 2010
4 – 22 December 2010
