The Working Art Space is located in the famous northwest Tasmanian Town of Murals, Sheffield. It is both an art gallery and thriving hub of local arts related activity. Established in 2005 by the Kentish branch of Tasmanian Regional Arts, it is situated in a heritage-listed, Kentish council owned, former drill hall built in 1912 for the 22nd Light Horse Company
The interior of the building has been transformed into a high quality arts based facility where you can view and purchase the exceptional work of local artists and artisans, enrol in one of the regularly held workshops plus check out the latest exhibition on display. You can also pre-book a demonstration session by an artist for your tour or special group, which includes complimentary refreshments.
If you take the self-guided audio tour of Sheffield’s murals, which can be arranged through the Visitor Information Centre, you will eventually find yourself at the Working Art Space because it boasts its own mural with a fitting theme – an old man reminiscing on his youth as a Light Horseman – just outside the main entrance. Step inside, it is definitely worth taking a look.
