Art exhibition opens at Port Arthur
An exhibition of works by Tasman Peninsula artists has opened at the Port Arthur Historic Site. It is just one of a number of activities offered at the World Heritage-listed site over the Easter week.
Organised by the Peninsula Art Group, with assistance from Port Arthur Historic Site Retail Manager Robyn Bradshaw, the exhibition will run at the Museum Cafe until Friday 29 April.
Around seventy guests celebrated the exhibition last night, which was formally opened by PAHSMA Board member Michael Field.
The artists have drawn heavily on the landscape of the region for inspiration. The artworks will be for sale, and red dots, signifying works sold, were appearing already during the opening.
Other activities at Port Arthur this Easter include the popular History Plays and family activities, such as convict brick-making and peg dolls.
