Tasmanian Art quarterly ART BEAT, a publication by the Launceston Art Society,
keeps good track of Tasmanian Artists, as well as featuring workshops by local
and visiting established artists
The Society promotes exhibitions and workshops by local and visiting artist who
are experts in their field.
The LAS has been in existence for over 120 years, and – as the president has
pointed out-the society is a year older than the Collingwood Football Club!
An ongoing prize for Tasmanian Art is the Tasmanian Art Awards at Eskleigh .
Another now famous sponsor for Tasmanian Art is the Glover Prize for a Tasmanian
landscape. A great boost to the Tasmanian Art world was the opening of the MONA
gallery in the south of the state attracting local crowds as well as visitors from
interstate and overseas.
The Leoni Duff Gallery and the Wellington Street gallery, are among many featuring
local artists in the North of the State.
Local restaurants and coffee lounges have also started featuring Tasmanian Art and local artists.
Tasmanian Art Photography at the John Temple Gallery in Westbury is full of wonderful nature
scenes from the most beautiful parts of Tasmania, available large, or medium framed prints, to
post cards and fridge magnets.
Solely Tasmanian Art and Craft is featured in the Design Centre of Tasmania in Launceston.
