Located in Cygnet, Tasmania is “Lovett Gallery Cygnet” operated by the Huon Art Exhibitions Group.
HAEG is primarily a group of local artists that initially got together to support each other and organise exhibitions. They now run their own gallery ‘Lovett Gallery Cygnet’ to display and market the work of their members. The Gallery is located at the rear of the Town Hall, Mary St, Cygnet and opens every weekend, Fridays during daylight savings and most public holidays from 10:00 to 16:00.
HAEG now has 120 members and coordinates a major annual exhibition – “The Huon Art Awards” as well as mini-exhibitions for member artists. Works at Lovett Gallery Cygnet are constantly changing and include paintings in all genres, photography, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery. Some members also produce greeting cards. Works can be viewed anytime on the website.
Many tourists and local visitors on the Huon Trail also use the visit to enjoy the cafe culture now blossoming in and around Cygnet. Cygnet is a 50-minute drive (55 km) south of Hobart.
