Tamar Valley Art Shack is a working art studio and gallery at Clarence Point, a short drive from Launceston. The gallery is a member of the Tamar Valley Art Trail and is set in the Tamar Valley Wine Route.
The gallery rests on the edge of the Tamar River in a unique waterfront setting.
The Art Shack’s surrounds are a continuing source of inspiration for the owner/artist Dan Villiers. Light and water form continuing themes throughout his work. You can talk with Dan about how he selects his subjects, see how he prepares his work, and discuss other aspects of art technique.
Dan paints in pastel, acrylic, pencil, and encaustic (beeswax and resin).
At the Art Shack you will also find art, ceramics and craft by other Tasmanian artisans.
This is not a formal gallery in a hushed environment. Echoing its origins as a family beach house, you will find large airy rooms flooded with sunshine. Step outside into a naturally landscaped seaside garden. Relax in and around the gallery, and share in the simplicity and pleasure of art and life at the waterside.
Clarence Point is a 52-minute drive (57km) north-west of Launceston.
