You're warmly invited to the Opening of the The Davey Street Collection at the Launceston Campaign Centre, 174 Charles Street, September 28th at 5.30pm.

Join local landscape painter Angus Douglas to open this event and share in a uniquely Tasmanian art collection, inspired by conservation and the decades of work by so many great people.


Over 40 years of campaigns to protect Tasmania’s wild places, the Wilderness Society has been gifted some very special works of art. For decades, they have hung in the Davey Street Campaign Center.  But, with a win over the pulp mill and a spring clean in Launceston, we’re putting them on show to celebrate and re-launch a revitalised northern campaign hub.

From the Franklin to Frenchman’s Cap, Lake Pedder to the Florentine, the collection features Tasmanian icons like Max Angus, Elspeth Vaughan and Val Whatley, with additional works by national artists including Lloyd Rees and Catherine Rogers, and many others.
