Slow Bones and Binalong Smoke have teemed up to present food cooked with fire and smoke in what promises to be a steam punk cook off of epic proportion.
Ruben Reeves and band will play two awesome sets of blues and roots with DJ Rbent continuing into the night.
Joshua’s paintings explore historical reinvention through the act of painting. They seek to question how history is constructed and attempt to unsettle the understanding of what and who constructs it. The figures imbedded within the paintings are ghosts of history.
Swinging between figurative and gestural abstraction, Joshua’s work suggests a flowing transient world in which history is at the mercy of the flux of time where new possibilities of understanding history is developed. The stirring environments of paint all but suggest a slipping away of both time and reality wiping away the possibility for narrative meaning
David is an emerging visual artist, based in Hobart, Tasmania.
David's work tends to gravitate towards portraiture, often combining elements of realism with emotive abstraction. His background in graphic design tends to inform the work through a different lens of colour, layout, and constant stylistic curiosity.
Thematically, David's work focusses on a dialogue between the viewer and the viewed, the natural vs synthetic world, and ideas bound by a feeling elicited through perceived beauty. It is usually an instinctual process, which presents with its own movement, emotion and an open ended narrative.
Erin Linhart is an emerging visual artist and poet based in Tasmania.
Her practice is an evolving multidisciplinary exploration, drawing inspiration from life events, observation and environment to narrate nostalgia.
Erin questions the human condition to capture an emotional response to untraditional or traditional forms of beauty. Through deconstruction and investigation, she navigates sentiment, tragedy and humour of the past and present. This enables transcendence into the contemporary and fictionalised histories that she is creating.
Alex Davern is a painter based in Hobart, Tasmania. Sitting on the boundary between minimal abstraction and the figurative, Alex's practice reduces images to an essence, leaving behind tensions between architectural space and the numinous items of his surroundings.

Bethany van Rijswijk is a visual artist and poet based in Hobart, Tasmania. Enriched by her studies in world folklore, ritual, and costume, her hand-cut collages and poems create an imagined mythology from found images and phrases. Her work has been shown most recently at Private Projects (Moonah), Women of the World Festival (London), and The Mythotique (Ibiza).
