Artists in Conversation

The Art Society organises occasional talks by local artists to share their stories.

No more are scheduled at present - there will be more in 2022.

These are opportunity to be inspired by what other artists are doing and to gain an insight into their process. They give us a chance to come together with like-minded people to network and learn from each other. Please register so that we know how many to cater for and to ensure that there are sufficient numbers to go ahead. All these are free events, unless otherwise noted.

Members and non-members welcome.

A big thank you to Jane Battaglene for arranging these talks for us.

Sebastian Galloway is the winner of the 2021 Glover Prize for his entry entitled View Of Mt. Lyell through an Acid Raindrop
Sebastian is an oil painter producing work from his home studio in Fern Tree. His work is highly rendered with a strong emphasis on detail and realism. He is inspired by his love for the Tasmanian environment and its inhabitants, as well as the people and creatures that surround him. It will be wonderful for us to meet this young local artist who is just beginning to make his mark on the art world.

Katy Woodroffe was the 2017 winner of the $20,000 Bay of Fires Art Prize for her piece 'Memory Pool'.
Katy Woodroffe lives and works in Hobart. Her work has been featured extensively in solo exhibitions both within Australia and overseas. Travel has been an important influence on her arts practice and she has been awarded many international residencies, including Paris (twice), Greece, India and Spain. A recurring theme in Katy’s recent work has been the historical implications of the early settlement of Tasmania. This culminated in a major exhibition, Family Heirloom, at the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Art in Hobart in 2018/19. The exciting opportunity to further extend these ideas internationally has resulted in an exhibition in the Netherlands in 2020/21 where Katy has collaborated with Dutch artists. Katy’s work is held in major public collections as well as corporate, tertiary and private collections within Australia and overseas. She is a passionate artist who has achieved so many accolades, check out her website

We are thrilled that she is able to give us an insight into her latest exhibition at Handmark Gallery.
