Celebrating the beautiful; the vulnerable; the many and varied birds of Tasmania.


Salamanca Arts Centre presents the works of SAC Resident Artist Katherine Cooper.

“Tasmania and its surrounding islands – home to a rich and diverse bird fauna.
Birds enthral us with their stunning plumage, amusing antics, their freedom of flight and their fragility.
Looking past the obvious; close observation and engagement of the subject is paramount for me in my efforts to capture the essence of the subject’s unique self.
I hope to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them.

Paying tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down – to reconnect.”
– Katherine Cooper
