Tasmanian Association of Recreational Artists Inc.


The Tasmanian Association of Recreational Artists (TARA) is a non-profit community based organisation that aims to:

  • provide a low cost opportunity for recreational and developing artists to exhibit and sell their works;
  • encourage members in their artistic endeavours; and
  • conduct sustainable exhibitions and sales to promote and enrich community involvement in and appreciation of art.


Our group creates artworks in a range of media; for example watercolour, oil, acrylic, gouache, pastel, printmaking, digital art and collage.


TARA’s main focus is on our annual December Exhibition at the Battery Point Community Hall.


The committee, headed by current President Bruce Edwards, is composed of volunteers, and all members contribute their time to keeping the exhibition open by sitting sessions to supervise the gallery and manage sales of members’ works.
