Art and Tassie produce meet in Vino and the Visual

Experience the Bass Strait Maritime Centre’s Collections in a new light while enjoying Tasmanian produce from Pearl Oyster Bar & Café.

Following from the success of a similar event in July, The Bass Strait Maritime Centre has teamed up with artist Elysium Greene and Pearl Oyster Bar to host another art and wine evening in the museum’s cafe space on Tuesday evening.

No experience in painting is necessary and participants can choose to either follow along with Elysium or create their own piece inspired by the collection items presented, while learning more about the objects themselves.

Bass Strait Maritime Centre Coordinator, Jaydeyn Thomas, is the driving force behind Vino and the Visual said there was a simple reason behind the initiative.

“While art is interesting to me, I would never go to a formal art class at a gallery as it’d be far too intimidating,” she said.

“I hope that a casual approach – a glass of wine in hand and a fun, experienced artist – will give others in the same mindset (as Jayden) the confidence to come along for a fun evening of art and wine with friends.”

The collection item chosen for the second instalment of Vino & The Visual is a wonderful photograph called Sunrise, by A.W. Marshall.

The wide frame image showcases the old Rotunda which was built in 1913 on Victoria Parade.
