  • Time: 12.00-1.00pm, Tuesday 6 February 2018 
  • Place: Royal Society Room, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Customs House, 19 Davey St entrance. 
'Jack Chesterman’s new exhibition “MAY QUEEN and the SIXAREEN - ARCHAEOLOGY of JOURNEYING” opens on Saturday, 3 February in the Carnegie Gallery at the Maritime Museum and will run until 22 April 2018.... This exhibition explores one of our favourite local vessels, the May Queen in honour of her 150th birthday last year. It also looks at the sixareen, a traditional clinker-built fishing boat used around the Shetland Islands.

This talk not only touches on his current exhibition, but also draws on his large body of work exhibited in the UK.'
