ARI Extravaganza | February at Sawtooth

Emerging art from across Tasmania and a new space at Sawtooth ARI

About

It’s that time again.

Sawtooth is back with an ARI Extravaganza with Constance and Visual Bulk.

Opens 6:00 pm Friday 8 February at Sawtooth ARI Gallery. All welcome to join us for this launch!

The program:

CONSTANCE ARI
they tell you which rock they were and how they travelled so far

they tell you which rock they were and how they travelled so far brings together four women: Alana Collins, Jessica Quinnell, Gabbee Stolp and Caitlin Fargher (curator). These artists look to the past to untangle intricate narratives in poetic and sensitive ways within the confines of Kelly’s Garden, delving deep into the emotional and the elemental.

This project is part of the Artist/Curator Project in partnership with CONSTANCE and Salamanca Arts Centre, made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.

VISUAL BULK
TIME HORIZONS

A group exhibition of artists who studied at the University of Tasmania’s School of Creative Arts in Hobart in 2019. These artists were among many students who dropped out/deferred or had their projects compromised by the unexplained loss of supervisors and the degradation of arts education at the Art School.

Featuring works by:
Tess Campbell
Theia Connell
James Edwards
Alexandra Hullah
Samuel Mountford
Amy Parker
Lee Booth
Florence Robinson

Time Horizons is a response to the relationship between art, artists and institutions – The ethics around the mechanisms that govern the arts in the academic realm and how it influences artistic practice and freedom.

SARAH MCKAY DROP-IN CENTRE
A community space at Sawtooth ARI

Sawtooth is excited to launch the Sarah McKay Drop-In Centre, a community space at the gallery. Writing desks, an evolving art library and a social space will be available during gallery hours for anyone who would like to work and meet in the space.

The space will be also available to community groups outside of opening hours by appointment. Please contact Director, Liam James, if you would like to book a time for a community group.

The art library needs some love so we’re looking for donations of art books and magazines. If you’d like to donate, please drop in!
