Off Centre, in Hobart, is a gallery and shop featuring work by Tasmanian ceramic artists. The gallery is located in the Salamanca Arts Centre, close to Hobart’s waterfront and a short walk from the city’s central business district.
Off Centre is managed by a cooperative of nine professional Tasmanian artists. The eight ceramicists and one bronze artist exhibit and sell a diverse range of work at Off Centre. You can choose from a range of artefacts including hand-painted tableware, elegant pierced porcelain vessels, and ceramic and bronze sculptures such as bronze Tasmanian devils, raku-fired fish and architectural sculptures. One of the artists is always on hand at the gallery to impart expert knowledge of the work on display. Off Centre also manages a small adjoining gallery, which exhibits the work of emerging and established local artists in a variety of media.

The Salamanca Arts Centre hosts a vibrant program of changing exhibitions in the Long Gallery, Sidespace Gallery, Loft Gallery and Top Gallery. You can also visit the Handmark Gallery, Aspect Design and the Salamanca Collection in Salamanca Place to see work by some of Tasmania’s best artisans.
