Wild Island Tasmania

Celebrating the nature of Tasmania through art and design

About

Wild Island at Salamanca is a gallery and design space that celebrates nature and wilderness in Tasmania.

Almost half of Tasmania is protected in national parks and other reserves. Wild Island explores the nature of Tasmania through gallery works, fine design and gifts, cultural events and dedicated nature based workshops. Wild Island seeks to awaken and enliven our intrinsic connection with nature – to engage, inspire and uplift.

The Wild Island gallery hosts regular exhibitions of two-dimensional and mixed media artworks, Tasmanian wood design, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, photography and more. The gallery features an extensive collection of the iconic and groundbreaking work of Peter Dombrovskis, pre-eminent in Tasmanian wilderness photography.

Wild Island also offers a diverse and unique selection of high quality, ethically produced, nature-based gifts from Tasmania, including clothing, lifestyle items, books, toys, educational materials, art-cards and prints.

A range of in-house seminars and events is conducted by Wild Island, covering such topics as print and jewellery-making, photography and wildlife care, and including film screenings, seminars, debates and concerts. Wild Island also runs authentic themed trips to Tasmania’s wild places, from simple guided day tours at Mt Wellington and Mt Field, through to week-long immersive workshops in remote wilderness.

The mission of Wild Island is to celebrate natural Tasmania and its magnificent wild land and sea-scapes through art, workshops and events. Wild Island has a vision of Tasmania that is, in the words of Olegas Truchanas “a shining beacon in a dull, uniform and largely artificial world.”

Wild Island is part of the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme that offers Australian residents interest-free loans to purchase artworks by contemporary Tasmanian artists. Ask the gallery for details or visit www.collect-art.com.au for more information.
