Alannah Dobson is an excellent curator and has created a beautiful gallery which regularly exhibits the works of Tasmanian artists. As a gift to the Hobart community she currently has a stunning exhibition of Australian masterworks from the Phillip Dobson gallery in Brisbane - fresh works I have never seen before by many names in Australian art. It closes soon... More

Long established in Salamanca Place. Reliable over time for interesting local art and jewellery. Worth a look, even if you can't buy.

Handmark (both Hobart and Evandale) have a target market in mind -- knowledgeable arts/design shoppers and particularly drawing on the tourist market. They offer a good range of top end artist/ makers' works and so help the local arts industry through sales and publicity. The gallery space is difficult curatorially but good street exposure and atmospheric too, being in the... More

This gallery had an excellent selection of local artwork, jewelry and other crafts. It is not inexpensive though. It is located at the Salamanca Market area with many other shops and restaurants,

Lovely selection of art of all prices and types. Featured artists are great - even the ones I dont like (others do - that is taste). Staff are very knowledgable and really work with the artist to build up their profile.

Run by well-regarded leading arts administrator Allanah Dopson, this gallery combines a commercial high-end tourist business with support for local artists. Beautifully curated small exhibitions combined with quality tourist souvenirs of jewellery, glass and pottery. The staff will spend time to find what you are looking for, and will often order in works from others not on display if you... More

Don't expect to go here and see the "run of the mill" junk that many other galleries sell - they don't have it. They have unusual and original artwork, sculptures and some of the most stunning jewellery around. Well worth a visit if you are after something unusual, something beautiful or something special. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly.... More

We first visited Handmark a couple of years ago and were blown away by the freshness and quality of work. Featuring a cross section of art, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and other art expressions I have always found inspiration from the collections. Handmark is always on the visit list when we go to Hobart - an absolute gem!
