Local Photographer exhibits at Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens - Lara Giddings, MHA - Tasmanian Government Media Releases

Minister for the Arts Lara Giddings today officially opened local photographic artist Francine Smith’s first exhibition at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart.

Entitled ‘Molecular’ the exhibited work is a study of the structure of various species of flora through close-up photography known as macro photography.

Ms Giddings congratulated Ms Smith on the opening of her first exhibition.

“This exhibition is another great example of the creative culture and people we have in our State.

“The arts offer something for everyone, whether it be as an artist or as someone who enjoys the arts as part of an audience.

“I would encourage all Tasmanians to take every opportunity to participate in the wide variety of arts we have in our State.”

Ms Smith said it is an exciting and proud moment to open her first exhibition showing her work to her fellow Tasmanians.

“As a 7th generation Tasmanian who has been an amateur photographer for 7 years, I can’t think of a better place to finally launch my first exhibition based on flora than at the beautiful Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in Hobart,” Ms Smith said.

“I work in digital which has proven a great format with which to uncover the secret world of flora through extremely close-up photography.

“Each photograph is a non-enhanced, colour original printed on canvas. They are each the only print of the work in existence.

“And each work has been framed by Tasmanian firm Luke Wagner Frame Makers.

‘Molecular’ is at The Gallery Space, Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens Visitors’ Centre from 9 January to 31 January 2006.
