Nolan exhibits new works by contemporary artists and runs workshops on art practice for all ages.

Current Exhibition

Phillip England's Fragile Bounty is our November exhibition exploring environmental changes in Tasmania since colonisation. He does this using the arcane technique of collodion tintype photographs to make unique and beautiful images. On Sunday 19th of November at 2pm Dr England will perform a tintype portrait in the gallery. All welcome.

Our Artists
