This exhibition celebrates 21 years of service by the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery’s Volunteer Art Guides. Their aim is to help the public engage with artworks at the Gallery, be they traditional or the latest contemporary installation.
The Art Guides have offered visitors numerous programs and courses over the years, which have helped them attract donations from the public to purchase art for TMAG’s collection.
As well as displaying art acquired with assistance from the Art Guides, 21UP contains work purchased from non-Guide funds from three artaid@tmag exhibitions specially organised by the Art Guides.
Works donated by local artists were sold to support victims of the Indonesian Tsunami in 2005, the Queensland floods in 2011, and the Dunalley bush fires in 2013
