Beautiful Beasts and Flights of Fancy
Till November 25
Joh Osborne and Dallas Richardson are exhibiting two very different collections of work at Gallery Pejean.
What links the artists, aside from sharing the walls, are their drives to express.
Their prints and paintings are a portion of the new, disparate solo shows Flights of Fancy and Beautiful Beasts, composed of nine works by Richardson and 12 by Osborne which opened at the gallery on Friday, November 3.
All pieces are on display until November 25.
Till March 10
The Strange Nature exhibition is a mish-mash of the "weird and wonderful" specimens from the museum's natural science collection exhibited alongside paintings and sculptures from seven Tasmanian and mainland artists.
Pangolins in vitrines and mounted warthog heads stand next to works like a series of 20 intricate prints from Hobart artist Milan Milojevic, or the glass-blown botanics of Helene Boyer of Invermay.
"It's conceived around the idea that the old museum was one of those cabinets of curiosities that was everything jammed into this space," said Ash Bird, QVMAG's senior curator of visual art and design.
The free entry Strange Nature exhibition is on display at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery at Royal Park from October 28 to March 10, 2024,
