The Academy Gallery is a dynamic, evolving and accessible cultural facility that seeks to demonstrate excellence in all its activities with the Tasmanian, national and international community. The gallery’s major objective is to promote and strengthen the recognition of Tasmania as a place recognised nationally and internationally for its quality arts practice. The Academy Gallery has built an extensive state and national reputation for the development, management and presentation of contemporary visual art, craft and design exhibitions. The exhibition program is formatted on the basis of perceived high quality, giving our community an opportunity to engage with work of a national and international calibre. In addition, the Gallery has become an active site for the publication and dissemination of research in the arts and arts-related disciplines.
