I am quite happy to announce too that the gallery is also displaying and stocking a selection of my images, and I would encourage everyone to visit and view some stunning Tasmanian landscape photography. The opening exhibition is a tribute to perhaps the grand-father of Tasmanian wilderness photography – Peter Dombrovskis. Half the gallery is currently dedicated to a selection of his images, painstakingly prepared and printed by Simon Olding, one of the photographers responsible for making the gallery a reality. Rob Blakers, and Loic LeGuilly are equally involved.
