Art at the Point is an exciting new art gallery located at Dennes Point – the northern most tip of Bruny Island in Tasmania.
The Gallery is located in the new contemparary wood and glass building @the Point designed by John Wardle and Associates and built primarily by community volunteers. The project was funded by a grant from the Commonwealth Government and the Kingborough Council and contains not only the purpose designed Gallery, but also the wonderful Jetty Cafe and Produce Store.
Art at the Point gallery features predominantly the work of Bruny Island artists… painting, printmaking, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, sculpture, and locally produced art cards. The art work at Art at the Point is unique and often has strong references to place. Many of our artists respond directly to the beautiful island landscape, wildlife and history and work across a range of media.
