Artist Donna Ritchie, who works as a Visitor Services Officer at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, is having an exhibition at the SideSpace Gallery of the Salamanca Arts Centre this month, and members are warmly welcomed to pop along for a look.
The exhibition, entitled Burnt Rubber, explores social behaviour and the consequences of greed.
Donna writes "by using nostalgic triggers, such as matchbox cars, I aim to give the viewer a personal connection to my work whilst filtering messages through."
"The use of matchbox cars emphasises the 'play' involved in our human existence - when this becomes a 'power play' it has the ability to become an unsustainable process where irreversible damage can be done."
The main materials used are mass produced matchbox cars alongside handcrafted Italian glass.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 7 until Sunday 11 May 2014, from 9 - 5 daily. The Sidespace Gallery is adjacent to the Long Gallery, on the first floor of the Salamanca Arts Centre at 77 Salamanca Place, Hobart.
