Moments in the North West on the Spring Equinox:
23 September 2023

The paranaple arts centre welcome back the Portal exhibition, a community project with a 10-year history in the North West of Tasmania.

Since 2013, people in the North West have been invited to share a moment from their day on a Capture Day that has varied over time and has connected people through shared ideas and experiences.

For 10 years, Portal has brought together fleeting moments on a specific day and reflected how we find ourselves mirrored in one another’s narratives.

This year’s capture day fell on the Spring Equinox when day and night are near equal length and daylight begins to overtake darkness.

The exhibition is a window into dawns and sunsets, time with animals big and small, days outside and indoors, moments alone and in community.
