The Huon Art Awards opening night was very different in 2021.
The COVID-19 maximum density limit for the Cygnet Town Hall means that at most 120 people can be in the hall at the same time, so there were 2 “opening nights” – Thursday 4th and Friday 5th March 2021.
The exhibition was opened by Bastian Seidel, MLC for Huon on the Thursday night, and introduced by Bob Brown on the Friday night.
And the winners for the 2021 Huon Art Awards are...
