TMAG, UN­TIL SUN­DAY, OC­TO­BER 22 This po­etic ex­plo­ration of place, fam­ily and ob­jects is told through con­tem­po­rary jew­ellery by four Tas­ma­nian jew­ellers: Alex Par­ish, Sarah Jones/Stubbs, Ja­nine Combes and So­phie Car­nell. Us­ing a range of ma­te­ri­als and tech­niques, the works con­tex­tu­alise Ho­bart’s history through their in­ter­pre­ta­tion of items. All are from the Bald­win Col­lec­tion, the largest sin­gle do­na­tion to the mu­seum (fea­tur­ing jew­ellery, diaries and do­mes­tic ob­jects), which frames the lives of the women from two of colo­nial Ho­bart’s lead­ing fam­i­lies, the Man­ings and the Knights. Free ex­hi­bi­tion. For de­tails, visit­s_on
