Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery
Exhibition Program – 2021 Annual Call Out
The Cradle Mountain Wilderness Gallery invites applications from Tasmanian artists and curators for exhibitions that respond to the themes:
WILDERNESS, ENVIRONMENT OR PLACE
Through our Exhibition Program, we seek to immerse visitors in our Tasmanian environment and culture, connecting them to our unique place on a deeper level. We aim to create enriching experiences that allow visitors to discover the layers beneath the surface and the stories that connect us to our culture and place.
Selection of exhibitions is based on the quality of artwork, concept and exhibition rationale, as well as the ability of the artist to self-manage the exhibition process from start to finish. Applicants who are submitting proposals for the exhibition program must:

- Have capacity and experience to produce and install an exhibition that aligns with the themes: environment, wilderness or place.

- Ensure artwork is transported to the gallery, installed and collected at the end of the exhibition.
- Ensure artwork is of a high standard of presentation.
