Exhibition Opening: Cats & Dogs All At Sea

Please join us for our next temporary exhibition opening!

Cats, dogs, monkeys and birds have been cherished on board ships for as long as people have made sea voyages. In a life from which children and families are usually missing, pets provided an important source of comfort and affection.
Photographer Samuel Hood boarded hundreds of ships between 1900s and 1950s that were moored in Sydney Harbour. He took thousands of photographs of crew members, from deckhands to the captain as a souvenir of their visit or to send home to families and loved ones.
Nearly all the photographs are posed formal portraits. In some, the sitter has chosen to be photographed with their beloved pet. More than just a ship’s mascot, these animals and crew solemnly express the clear attachment that exists between them. Hood captured some of these relationships in his images, understanding the special role these animals played on a ship’s journey.

Cats & Dogs: ALL AT SEA is an exhibition from the Australian National Maritime Museum, but, as always, we will be adding local stories and objects into this exhibition. Do you have a story of a maritime pet? We’d love to hear it!

Exhibition: On Belonging(s)

Exhibition: On Belonging(s)

On Belonging(s) brings together four Tasmanian artists who are exploring how we attach value to objects, and the role they play in the stories we tell about ourselves, both individually and communally. On Belonging(s) is a reflection on how we construct our identity, connect ourselves to place and engage with our possessions, both nostalgically and idealistically, as extensions of the self.

Exhibition: As far as the eye can see

Exhibition: As far as the eye can see

As far as the eye can see celebrates celebrates the contemporary topography of both landscape and printmaking. The exhibition challenges these doubly conventional themes through the work of twenty-two Australian artists whose work reflects the breadth and depth of print practice in Australia today. The artists express their individual relationships to the land through a variety of print media, describing both the vast scale and the intimate detail of our diverse natural environment and portraying Australia’s unique and varied geography.

Featuring Antonia Aitken (TAS), Raymond Arnold (TAS), G. W. Bot (ACT), Susanna Castleden (WA), Jan Davis (NSW), Gary Jolley (NSW), Locust Jones (NSW), Martin King (VIC), Judith Martinez (NSW), Clyde McGill (WA), Helen Mueller (NSW), Alice Nampitjinpa (NT),
Dorothy Napangardi (NT), Daniel O’Shane (QLD), Janet Parker-Smith (NSW), Julie Paterson (NSW), Olga Sankey (SA), Gary Shinfield (NSW), Rochelle Summerfield (NSW), Chris Tobin (NSW), Judy Watson (QLD) and Freedom Wilson (NSW).
