137th Annual Exhibition
by members of
The Art Society of Tasmania

Long Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre
13th – 22nd August 2021

The judges were impressed by the diversity of work in this exhibition and by how well it has been curated and presented in this beautiful gallery space.
The judging was done with a numbering system so that the judges could not identify the artists.

Best Overall Work
Zane Yasuda - Balancing Act 
$1000 Artery Voucher

Judges comments: "This is an adventure of exploring line, shape and colour. The judges were impressed with the way the artist pushed the boundaries of painting.
Colour harmony and rhythm of green, blues and browns were well explored. The artist has dared to do something different. The longer you view the work, the more you see.

Best Use of Medium
Rick Crossland - Blue Boat, Franklin, Early Afternoon 
$500 Art Society of Tasmania Prize

Judges comments: "This is a strong painting. The artist has a very sophisticated and assured ease in the quality application of paint and colour.
The judges tossed up between this and another painting by the same artist, 'Isolation', which deserved a special mention.
