A last peep at dusk of the mighty mountains surrounding country, the grandeur of which few countries can equal and none excel.
– Oscar Allen Wilson, The Spectacular West Coast of Tasmania, 1933
The lived connection between West Coast artists and the surrounding landscape is a generative well of provocation and inspiration. They explore; they observe; they use paint, ink, charcoal, sculpture, metal, photography and other mediums; all to expand perspectives and contribute to the modern creative reputation of our community.
A wide range of extraordinary West Coast artists will showcase their work in Queenstown during the festival, authentically connecting audiences with creative practices in galleries, studios, sheds, homes, windows, wall spaces, and more.
