There are many benefits in becoming a member of the Tasmanian Association of Recreational Artists.

Each December, the Tasmanian Association of Recreational Artists Inc. (TARA) holds a members’ exhibition in Battery Point, a prime location for an exhibition during the peak holiday and tourist season. We also organise additional exhibitions and events from time to time in various locations.

For an annual membership fee of $50, you can exhibit up to 6 works for sale, depending on size, in each exhibition we hold. Plus, you can include unframed works, and cards of your original work. TARA takes a modest 20% commission.  We are a non-profit organisation and  commission is used to cover rental of exhibition venues, advertising, insurance and other costs.

TARA also offers members their own promotional web page on the TARA web site at

So if you are a recreational artist, why not join us, exhibit your work and share it with an audience. We only ask that you help out for a few sessions during any exhibition in which you participate.

If you are interested in joining, please complete this Membership Form and return it to TARA by email at or by post to TARA, 38 Carr Street, North Hobart, Tasmania, 7000.
