The Bay of Fires Art Prize Exhibition has been a wonderful success.
There is still time to come in and have a look!
The gallery is open until 30th June 10am – 4pm daily.
The winner is Paul Ryan’s Fine Young Cannibal – A Portrait of Alexander Pearce, has been well received and a popular choice.
The Alexander Pearce story in the Tasmanian history has been conveyed in an almost “acceptable” way, portraying Alexander as a refined young English gentleman!
Watch this space for the winner of the people’s choice.
And coming soon…
