Take a stroll and visit the Clarendon Arms Hotel, located in Evandale. When you get there, wander up the stairs and see what undiscovered treasures decorate the walls of the space.
When the hotel reopened in October, after its refurbishment, an unknown beauty was also quietly added to the the establishment. An art exhibition now decorates the space, which changes seasonally - and for special events.
Handmark Gallery director, and curator of the space, Allanah Dopson said the idea came about when she unfortunately had to give up the previous space the gallery had used, due to the pandemic.

"At that time the Clarendon Arms was also shut down," she said.
"[The hotel and I] developed a plan to put some artwork in for the reopening of the pub."
Ms Dopson said the high ceilings and the different lighting in the rooms worked perfectly for an exhibition to be hung.
For the exhibition openings, the Clarendon Arms works in with the events to provide special meals.
"[The collaboration] is a really lovely mixture," Ms Dopson said.
"People have really embraced it."
So far, there have been four shows including a spring, Christmas, summer, and now also a winter show. However, the current show comes with a twist.
"Instead of doing a mixture of all our different Tasmanian artists, [we thought] why don't we chose four different artists for the rooms," Ms Dopson said.
The curator said she gotten to know the space over the last 10 months and knew what would sit well in each room. Viewers had commented to her about how nice it was to enjoy artwork out of a gallery setting.
"[The work is] something that enhances the space, and is great exposure for our artists," Ms Dopson said.
"The reaction has been great."
However, it is not only Ms Dopson who has seen the success of the transformed space. Clarendon Arms manager Liz Bailey said the change had been wonderful.
"It's so exciting we get to change the walls so regularly as well, which is really nice," she said.
"It's a really good way to entertain people and expose them to Tasmanian art."
Ms Bailey said it had been great to see how Tasmanians were supporting local businesses, both with the hotel and with the art.
Although the artwork in display is publicised by a sign out the front and flyers inside, as well as by staff, Ms Dopson said she hoped to bring more awareness to the exhibitions.
"[The exhibitions] are dream come true for me," she said.
All works on display are for sale and can be purchased, or just enjoyed leisurely. However, if you plan to enjoy the artwork and grab a bite to eat, ensure you make a booking as weekends fill up fast.
The current show will run until August 4.
