Transplantation: a Sense of Place and Culture
9 October 2014 - 18 January 2015
This exhibition of contemporary narrative jewellery explores the sense of place and cultural identity through the theme of transplantation.
Twelve artists based in the UK and Australia have explored their own sense of place and individual cultural identity as a consequence of their personal and family experiences of transplantation.
Transplantation is a travelling exhibition developed by the University of Lincoln, assisted by the National Centre for Craft and Design and funded by Arts Council England. In Australia it is toured by Museum and Gallery Services Queensland.

Artists With Conviction – The Gallery of Time features work by Tasmania Prison Service inmates and offenders who are on probation, parole or community service orders, as well as work by staff of the Department of Justice.
Now in its fourth year, the exhibition allows inmates and Community Correction clients to develop creative self-expression through mixed media and to showcase their talents.
Staff of the Tasmania Prison Service and Community Corrections have worked closely with the artists, assisting clients in developing a sense of accomplishment and self-esteem, which are vital for a successful reintegration back into society.
