North West Art Circle Annual Community Art Exhibition & Awards

Devonport Regional Gallery presents the 27th annual North West Art Circle (NWAC) exhibition in the Main Gallery from 6th to 28th May, 2017. The NWAC is a group of close to 60 artists based on the North West of Tasmania that provides opportunities for local artists to promote and further develop their artistic practice.

The NWAC exhibition has developed over the years becoming a well attended and popular community event, allowing exposure and recognition of local artists and their work. Well known and emerging artists exhibit works in oil, watercolour, pastel, acrylic, drawing and sculptural forms. This year’s head judge is Sally Sadler with local North West artists, Evelyn Antonysen and Cheryl Sims assisting. The winning works will be presented at the exhibition opening on Friday 5 May.

A series of programs and events run alongside the exhibition, which includes workshops in watercolour and mixed media and artist demonstrations. The popular Artists in Action will take place on Sunday 28 May, 1–3:30 pm, with NWAC artists demonstrating their artistic processes and practices to Gallery visitors. Artists are also available to answer questions about their practice.
