Art Network

Recognising the substantial gap that existed between completion of formal training and commercial viability for local artists, ORANGE GECKO Art Network Inc. was established to assist in bridging that gap.

In many ways we are a ‘self-help’ collective of artists offering many and varied forms of assistance to professional established and emerging artists within the region.

culturally aware! We provide access to a range of services such as information, networking, training and professional development and advocacy. 

Orange Gecko Art Network aims to bring people together, to share what’s going on and to promote creativity, tourism, the arts and cultural activities in the Tamar Valley Region in Northern Tasmania. Ensuring that arts and cultural development are directed and driven by bi-partisan, “grass roots” community and industry interests.

Funky Fun Fish Art Trail

Orange Gecko Art Network members wanted to create a ‘funky fun fish arts trail’ around the George Town Tamar Valley region of bright colourful fish on community fences and buildings to create and generate interest in the region. A ‘fun trail to follow and find’ for the locals and tourists alike. Create a point of difference for the region – a talking point. George Town is known for the Tamar River (officially kanamaluka / River Tamar), a 70-kilometre estuary located in northern Tasmania, Australia. Despite being called a river, the waterway is a brackish and tidal estuary over its entire length. It is a popular local fishing area, so we wanted to celebrate that in a fun way.
