This project is supported by the Huon Valley Council’s Stronger Together Grant Program.

The Huon Art Exhibitions Group obtained a “Rapid Response Community Grant” from the Huon Valley Council to run an online art exhibition “Art in Pandemic” to encourage local artists to exhibit the artworks they have created during the COVID-19 lockdown.

There is a $500 award for “Best in Show”, and a $200 “Runner up” which will be announced on 7th September 2020.

There is no fee to enter artworks into this exhibition. There is a limit of two artworks per artist. The exhibition is open to all HAEG & CRAG members, and residents of the Huon/Channel area.

All entered artwork will be exhibited online on the HAEG website, and will be stored and displayed on rota in HAEG’s Lovett Gallery in Cygnet. All artworks are for sale, with payment online or at the Lovett Gallery Cygnet.

Entries are now closed.

The “Art in Pandemic” exhibition will continue to be available for viewing online here and in the Lovett Gallery Cygnet during normal gallery opening hours (10am-4pm Saturdays and Sundays) until Sunday 27th September.

The Huon Art Exhibitions Group (HAEG) has been formed to facilitate a series of artwork exhibitions and competitions to be held regularly each year.

 

The aim is to cultivate artistic and cultural life in Southern Tasmania’s rural areas and to foster young and emerging artists.

 

HAEG events give local artists of all abilities a venue to show their work, and an opportunity to meet with artists in the region.

HAEG members operate the Lovett Gallery in Cygnet each weekend plus Fridays through the summer.

 

The work of members is available for purchase from the Lovett Gallery at very reasonable rates. Works can also be purchased by contacting a committee member.
