It has been four years since Launceston artist Ben Miller has held a solo show of his work.
The artist has been busy with commissions, group shows, and balancing life.
But now he is back with Up Silt Creek with a Paddle - an exhibition that celebrates the magic of Native Point on the East Tamar.

For Miller, the exhibition has been a trip down memory lane.
"About thirty years ago, Native Point was my daily go-to place. I used to paddle there in my kayak every afternoon after school. If I didn't paddle, I would ride my Repco 10 speed," he said.
"There were community Easter egg hunts, BBQ's, fishing missions and now mountain bike runs with my kids."
The exhibition turned from a very dark set of works originally, to something bright and colourful thanks to the inspiration of Native Point.
"[The work] became the process of how do you capture a special place that's in your memories ... and in your past, present, and future," Miller said.
Miller used a variety of mediums including spray paint, acrylics, oil, mud, rocks, and other objects.
"Hopefully it's just a little fun show that captures a little of what [Native Point] was, what it is, and what it will be," he said.
The show will open 2pm Easter Sunday at Sawtooth ARI, with refreshments and tasty Easter eggs on offer.
The exhibition will continue until April 30.
