A photo of visual artwork made by Grace Garton from the 2022 West Coast Artist Commission.

The West Coast Artist Commission program ran from 2018–2023.

The $5000 acquisitive West Coast Artist Commission celebrates the talented visual artists living in Western Lutruwita/Tasmania through the creation of an annual commissioned artwork, with the artworks accumulating to build a local collection representing artists and arts practitioners of the region. The program has awarded $30,000 of funding to West Coast visual artists and formed a collection of pieces illustrating a conceptual link to the western fringe of Lutruwita/Tasmania.

The Unconformity West Coast Artist Commission was supported through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
