evandale ‘pop-up’ ― an artistic adventure

As autumn bears down, Evandale and the legacy of John Glover takes centre stage, and Handmark will be there with a wonderful offering of landscape art.

Until his death in 1849, artist John Glover famously captured the vistas around his home near Evandale. Now, every March the landscape prize in his honour draws art enthusiasts in their droves to the historic northern midlands village.

Handmark will once again have a special pop-up exhibition in Evandale to coincide with the Glover Prize. Opening on Friday February 26 at 5.30 pm at the historic Clarendon Arms, it will feature landscapes by some of Tasmania’s most pre-eminent artists.  Why not make an evening of it, enjoy live jazz and stay for dinner.

Meanwhile, congratulations to three of Handmark’s fabulous artists – painters Faridah Cameron, Peter Gouldthorpe and Luisa Romeo – who have all been selected as finalists in the Glover Prize which will be announced the following Friday on March 5 at The Falls Pavilion.

If you missed the Handmark opening at the Clarendon Arms on the 26th, come to Evandale on the long-weekend of March 6, 7 and 8 and enjoy both exhibitions.

Handmark’s Landscape pop-up opens at 5.30pm on February 26 at the Clarendon Arms in Evandale. It runs until April 11.
