The Cove Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in Strahan on Tasmania’s west coast. Strahan is a four-and-a-half-hour drive west of Hobart (298 kilometres) and south-west of Launceston (290 kilometres).
The Cove Gallery is part of Strahan’s waterfront Risby Cove accommodation complex. The Gallery is housed within a converted, century-old sawmill workshop and the exposed-beam framework compliments an eclectic collection of work by Tasmanian artists. Paintings, photography, jewellery, ceramics and glass and textile art are featured in the collection. Work by Tasmanian furniture designers and sculptors using rare Tasmanian timbers, such as Huon and King Billy pine, sassafras and myrtle, form a significant part of the collection. Artists whose work has been exhibited at Risby Cove include Tasmanian Aboriginal painter Mick Quilliam, local photographer Rick Eaves and sculptural furniture designer James Vaughn.
Other galleries in Strahan include the Wilderness Woodworks Gallery, where visitors can watch local artisans crafting fragrant Huon Pine.
