Overview

We are a unique art gallery and working studio in Tasmania's scenic Tamar Valley, near Launceston. Member of the Tamar Valley Art Trail and on the Tamar Valley Wine Route. The gallery is set on the water's edge. Meet the resident artist, Dan Villiers. A skilled painter, drawer and artist in lots of mediums, he will be delighted to show you his latest projects and the new techniques he is practising. Watch him at work, ask him questions, explore his studio and gallery. He will also show you the work of other Northern Tasmanian artisans that the gallery is proud to represent. Plenty to interest all!

We went to the museum in Beaconsfield and the way after the Seahorse place, we had a short visit to the gallery... Very impressed with all the art works displayed. We thought it would have been nice if combined with a little cafe..

We love little finds like this...off the beaten track, lovely approach down a winding driveway, and the excitement of finding a very professional yet charming gallery. So much to see - it is quite amazing that one artist can produce such a variety of works....More
