Private collections and memories

This post* features two projects from the north of the state which feature private collections and landmarks.

Private collections

This exhibition explores the private collections of local people.  Marvel at the intricate model boats on display, the wonderful wombat figurines, have a hoot over the owls, become more familiar with English satire from a range of 'Punch' magazines, learn about early commerce in Australia and Tasmania with a selection of promissory notes or just enjoy the whole exhibition and wonder about the art of collecting - if you have more than 3 of a set, you have a collection!

On now until December 2019

Provide as much detail as possible in a Word document (not a PDF) and if you have images (always a winner) attach them in separate files in JPG format.  For example images sent from a smartphone  come in this format. These requirements are very simple but specific--otherwise your information can be difficult to publish. This attached form may help you gather these details-but feel free to send whatever you have--did  I mention it must be in Word and as a JPG?  😊
