Waubs Bay Gallery opened in November 2014 with the vision to create a unique interactive space to exhibit the exceptional diversity of our local East Coast, Tasmanian and Interstate Artists.
The gallery has since evolved into a space that strongly showcases wildlife and coastal themes and Artisans from Tasmania and Interstate.
The influence of a coastal seaside lifestyle, diverse cultural heritage and natural environment is evident in works on display.
Gallery Owner/Resident Artist:
Award winning wildlife artist Vanessa Richardson lives in Bicheno with her 2 young daughters. With a tour guiding background, Vanessa made the transition to devoting her time to her Art career following the birth of her first child.
“Guiding has provided the perfect platform to interact and engage with Tasmania’s diverse environment and I have been lucky enough to have experienced some very unique wildlife encounters. Understanding the environment I am surrounded by is an ongoing journey. I live in one of the best natural wildlife sanctuaries in the world”
Vanessa is currently the owner and Resident Artist of Waubs Bay Gallery. Vanessa has her ‘in gallery studio’ set up so it is not uncommon to find her working on her latest piece if you stop in for a visit.
