• Helen Stephens

Congratulations are in order

It is on – our staggered closing exhibition Sunday, May 31 from 1 – 4.

Join us over the course of three hours for drinks and meet the artist.

Helen Stephens Gallery Collector, June 2018 way before coronavirus and social distancing.

With some of the restrictions being lifted, Stephen can have his exhibition opening/ending and enjoy the company of friends and supporters.

The Gallery in Collector is set in a large garden surrounded by paddocks so plenty of room for physical distancing.

What did artist, Stephen Harrison know when he decided to transfer his interest in the thylacine to paper with a series of intriguing ink and wash drawings on watercolour paper?

Almost immediately, despite the exhibition, The blue thylacine, opening entirely on line, the sales started.

There has been a groundswell of interest in the Tasmanian Tiger (Thylacine). Stephen Harrison’s exhibition which opened on May 3 has triggered a lot of interest among thylacine enthusiasts.

It was extraordinary to see a report on the ABC news recently of newly discovered footage of the last known thylacine in captivity at Hobart’s Beaumaris Zoo, filmed in the 1930s. The film was unearthed by tiger enthusiasts digging through the National Film and Sound Archives.

Lots to do in Collector to while away the hours so come and join us.
