evandale pop-up ― winter salon

The finest Tasmanian art, food, wine and a roaring fire. Why not make Handmark’s Winter Salon your next weekend adventure.

Could there be a better way to celebrate winter’s arrival? Head to the beautiful village of Evandale for Handmark’s latest pop-up exhibition which opens Friday week at the stunningly refurbished Clarendon Arms. The works of four of Tasmania’s most exciting artists will be featured – painters Adrian Barber and Nick Glade-Wright, collage artist Bethany Van Rijswijk and printmaker Nic Goodwolf.

Nic is thrilled to be part of Handmark’s Winter Salon where his hand-drawn prints embrace the importance of ‘Transit’ in our global lives: “I love to play with the concept of the joy of movement that we all experienced in the pre-COVID world, which could be anything from hot air balloons to zeppelins,” Nic explains. “The freedom to transfer not only ourselves, but our knowledge, across the globe is something that fascinates and excites me.”

The Winter Salon pop-up will offer something unique and very different to Handmark’s Hobart exhibitions. As Handmark Director, Allanah Dopson explains: “Winter Salon is a chance to combine stunning Tasmanian art, history and food in one of the state’s most beautiful villages. So why not enjoy a meal at the Clarendon Arms and make it the perfect winter weekend getaway. Or better still, join us for opening night.”

HandmarkWinter Salon pop-up opens at 5:00pm on June 18 at the Clarendon Arms in Evandale.  It runs until August 4.
