Arts in Parks is a project that celebrates the 20 year partnership between Arts Tasmania and the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service.
This partnership offers artists the opportunity to immerse themselves in some of the most stunning wilderness locations in Tasmania’s national parks through the Dombrovskis Parks and Wildlife Wilderness Residency program.
Arts in Parks is a series of exhibitions that feature artworks that have been inspired by artists’ residencies over the past 20 years. The diversity of the artwork demonstrates the significance of the wilderness environment as a place of creative inspiration and provide an artist’s interpretation of Tasmania’s national parks.
The four exhibitions can be found from September 2016 until March 2017 at
- Bruny Island Lighthouse Museum
- Trailside Museum, Cradle Mountain
- Lake St Clair Visitors Centre
- The Chapel on Maria Island
An online exhibition with artwork, artist profiles and information about each location is available here.
Arts in Parks is a joint initiative between Arts Tasmania and the Parks and Wildlife Service and is part of the 2016 Tasmanian National Parks centenary celebrations.
