Wild Island – fine art and gifts from natural Tasmania.
Wild Island celebrates the nature of Tasmania through art, fine design, beautiful gifts, cultural events and workshops. Wild Island seeks to awaken and enliven our intrinsic connection with nature – to engage and inspire.
At Wild Island, in the heart of Hobart’s Salamanca Place, you’ll find:
The Wild Island gallery, that hosts regular exhibitions of two-dimensional and mixed media artworks, Tasmanian sustainable wood design, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, photography and more. The gallery features an extensive collection of the iconic work of Peter Dombrovskis, pre-eminent in Tasmanian wilderness photography.
The Wild Island shop, that offers a diverse selection of high quality, ethically produced, nature-based gifts from Tasmania, including clothing, lifestyle items, books, toys, educational materials, art-cards and prints.
Wild Island workshops, seminars and film nights, covering such topics as print and jewellery making, photography, art, environment and wildlife care.
The mission of Wild Island is to celebrate natural Tasmania and its magnificent wild places through art, workshops and events. Wild Island has a vision of Tasmania as, in the words of the famous photographer Olegas Truchanas “a shining beacon in a dull, uniform and largely artificial world.”
Wild Island is part of the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme that offers Australian residents interest-free loans to purchase artworks by contemporary Tasmanian artists.
