The 2022 Huon Art Awards Exhibition is now over.
Opening night was Friday 4th March 2022. 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 it was a ticketed event.
The exhibition was opened by well known local artist Bonnie Sveen.
