glover pop-up ― evandale

From bucolic pastoral scenes to wild wilderness. Handmark celebrates Tasmania’s striking landscape with a special exhibition to coincide with the Glover Prize.

As the leaves start to turn, art lovers descend on the historic village of Evandale to pay tribute to its most famous son, landscape painter John Glover. And, while preparations ramp up for the Glover Prize this March long weekend, Handmark is putting final touches on its own tribute – Celebrating our Landscape at the Clarendon Arms Hotel.

Expect striking diversity in the 30-plus works on display at the pop-up exhibition. Be entranced by Glover finalists’ Luke Wagner – who is still basking in the sell-out success of his first Handmark Exhibition – and Bruce Thurrowgood. While Mona Choo unveils her very personal, Tasmania as Tonic, which captures her “inner turmoil being healed, soothed and nurtured by the beauty and tranquillity of Tasmania’s landscape,” after relocating back to the State from Singapore during COVID.

Celebrating our Landscape is the perfect excuse for a weekend getaway: “A trip to Evandale for the Glover Prize is a must for art lovers, and we are making it even more of an adventure,” Handmark Director, Allanah Dopson, explains. “Our exhibition kicks off at 5pm this Friday, 3 March with live jazz at the historic Clarendon Arms Hotel.  Please join us for bubbles, then stay for dinner and make a real night of it!”

Celebrating our Landscape opens this Friday at the Clarendon Arms in Evandale and runs for a month until April 3.
