An Awfully Beautiful Place
7th Jun 2012 - 30th Jul 2012
The Antarctic art of Stephen Eastaugh. This mixed media exhibition spans ten years of Stephen Eastaugh's work in and about Antarctica.
Eastaugh has been awarded three Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowships with the AAD including a winter-over at Mawson station in 2009. The exhibition will overview a very personalised Antarctic visual diary and present the artist's extensive times spent far south.
In total, the artist has spent 18 months on the ice and has made 18 voyages across the Great Southern Ocean - a time span that very few contemporary artists have committed to Antarctica.
The exhibition will be held at the Carnegie Gallery, 16 Argyle Street, Hobart.
