An evolving annual exhibition of around 40 Tasmanian artists, with links to the UTAS School of Creative Arts in its various incarnations, where artists present engaging mini exhibitions in a wide variety of media and approaches.
“Images of Tasmania” (IOT) is an annual exhibition of selected artists with links to the UTAS School of Creative Art in its various incarnations. It is the brainchild of Jan Peacock and Betsy Gamble, who saw the potential of presenting a collaborative show whereby the artists share the costs and tasks of mounting the exhibition held annually over the Christmas – New Year period. Hobart is buzzing with visitors at this time.
The first IOT exhibition was held in 1998, as the initiative of artists and art educators who trained together in the late 1950s. Over the past decades, IOT has evolved into a high-quality exhibition of 40 – 45 artists, each with an individual display space in which to showcase the development of their ideas over a wide range of approaches and techniques. Some artists have been exhibiting in IOT for many years, but the exhibition is annually infused with ‘new blood’ drawn mainly from art school graduates and post graduates.
This dynamic exhibition showcases a variety of disciplines including painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics, textiles and sculpture.
