Ephemeral Art the Invisible Lodge

“Tasmania’s Freycinet Experience provides a pristine landscape for a transient but irresistible exhibition.” John McDonald, Sydney Morning Herald, Spectrum Arts and Entertainment, 23-24 February 2008

In celebration of the secret and magical nature of Friendly Beaches we held our second Ephemeral Art Exhibition over February and March. It was spectacular - the bushland providing an exquisitely surreal setting for the artists to create sculptural works that sit in and use the natural environment.

Continuing our association with Sculpture By The Sea, its founder David Handley was joined by Peter Timms and Dick Bett to curate this year’s exhibition.
The nine participating artists were: Peter Adams, Dean Chatwin, Julie Gough, Colin Langridge, Anne Mestitz, Sasha Reid, Ron Robertson-Swann OAM, Marcus Tatton, and Catherine Woo.
Our many thanks to the talented artists for creating the inspired installations and the guests who were able to share the experience with us.

If you would like more information, Daniel Thomas has written a wonderful essay and images covering the event for the June 2008 issue of Art Monthly Australia.
