Bett Gallery has staged a series of Poets and Painters exhibitions over 30 years bringing together visual arts and poetry with a focus on building a strong arts community. For this exhibition Bett Gallery has collaborated with the Tasmanian Land Conservancy to focus on their work in nature conservation.

Across the spring and summer months of 2016 and 2017, The Big Punchbowl Reserve on Tasmania’s Freycinet Peninsula was visited by nine poets and nine painters. Working in pairs, they have captured this landscape and its stories in poetry and paintings.

Please join us as artists and poets come together to celebrate their connection to place through performance, visual art and poetry …
