Enjoy the Environmental Art Gallery at The Ugly Duck Out on Tasmania’s sunny east coast. Resident artist Robyn Klobusiak uses the mediums of photography and paint to create a fusion of art and nature.
Her images call for the wild world to endure. Beyond recording the beauty of nature, Robyn’s Environmental Art cries out for its protection. She hopes her work inspires people to change behaviour, conserve nature and nurture our planet’s vanishing spirit.
Photographic images, painted rocks and painted skulls of road kill feature at the gallery. All her work is designed to touch peoples’ hearts, change peoples’ minds and perhaps provoke action. At the very least it reminds us of our earth’s inspiring beauty and visually challenges us to define the line between our nature and our art.
The casual family restaurant within the gallery specialises in dietary requirements. The globally inspired menu features produce from the on-site vegetable and herb garden. All other produce, meats and seafood are locally and sustainably sourced. Try the Wallaby Goulash, East Coast Calamari or the locally cured bacon and eco-pig. The Ugly Duck Out is also a holder of Ecotourism Australia Accreditation.
