Tasmanian Art Teachers - TATA

We can’t wait for this year’s iteration of ArtRage! ❤️Last week our Curator, Ash Bird, was on the north west coast selecting works for ArtRage 2020. We asked him how it went:

‘The more I see I get an understanding of how this year has impacted on these students. Even if their work doesn’t respond to COVID-19 and isolation directly there is an emotional gravity to the work, and in many ways detailed works that are the result of quiet moments at home on their own. It’s going to be an amazing year for ArtRage and the hardest I’ve had to select in the five years I’ve worked on this show, there is a WOW moment every day! I can't wait to share the talent of these wonderful artists in December.’

And we can’t wait to share them with you all soon too!
