As 2022 kicks off, a new program of exhibitions at galleries in northern Tasmania is also kicking off. Scottsdale Art Gallery Cafe has shared what art lovers can expect from them this year. From March 13 to April 17, the talents of engraver Sam Boarder will be exhibited at the gallery. Boarder is a Northwest Coast artist who was born in Burnie and raised in Wynyard and Sisters Beach. “I first got interested in printmaking when I was in high school and did linocut printmaking in art class,” she said.

Nigel Lazenby will then exhibit at the gallery from April 24 to May 29. Lazenby’s works on display will contain landscapes, animals and surreal imagery, with the medium varying from works on paper to acrylic. The gallery will then host its 9th annual Gestalt exhibition from June 5 to July 31, which each year takes on its own character.
