Jim Nelson – A life with Pots


28 January 2023 – 13 March 2023
Little Gallery


From functional ware to robust and craggy woodfired pots the exhibition Jim Nelson — A life with Pots traces the artist’s 40 years as a potter in Weegena in the Northwest of Tasmania.

Also central to Jim’s work was his study of Tasmania’s flora and fauna resulting in platters which display local species including frogs and the giant freshwater crayfish.
