Mount Wellington – Osmosis Exhibition 2013 – November 14-25
Mount Wellington rises 1271 metres above the city of Hobart. Kunanyi is the Aboriginal name attributed to the mountain although the Mouheneenner people who lived in the area for thousands of years prior to European settlement had other names as well. The European name was chosen to acknowledge the Duke of Wellington who in 1816 defeated Napoleon Bonaparte in the Battle of Waterloo.
Opening 6pm Friday 15 November with guest speaker Greg Lehman
Working throughout the year 24 Osmosis Artists are engaging with the mountain through all weather conditions and in consideration of cultural and environmental aspects while using a range of media to produce work for the November exhibition at the Salamanca Arts Centre, Long Gallery.
