Evandale exhibition — Spring salon

Handmark is keeping art alive at Evandale with a pop-up exhibition celebrating the rebirth of Spring.

Spring Salon, which opens Friday 23 October and runs until Sunday 15 November, embraces the optimism that this season brings. A stunning exhibition of 30 new works from some of Tasmania’s most acclaimed artists, it also shines a light on our incredible northern talent.

“With the recent closing of our gallery in Evandale, we don’t want to lose touch with our many wonderful clients and friends in the north of the state,” Handmark Director, Allanah Dopson explains.

Evandale’s historic Clarendon Arms Hotel provides a beautiful backdrop for Spring Salon. Lydia Nettlefold, who also owns the Red Feather Inn, has just given the pub a full makeover: “The upstairs area, which was not being used, has now been transformed into a sparkling array of rooms with very high ceilings – just perfect to view artwork,” Allanah adds.

The Clarendon Arms is currently open Thursday to Sunday, with dinner on Saturday by reservation. Just phone the Clarendon Arms on 6391 8181 to book. Due to COVID restrictions, bookings are also essential for Spring Salon, so please register your interest by return email.
