Despard Gallery

Despard Gallery has been an established commercial art space in Hobart, Tasmania for 30 years. Throughout this time the gallery has lead the way for contemporary arts practice through an extensive exhibition program, including large scale international exhibitions in New York and Chicago. With this extensive history and experience Despard is set in a purpose-built above the original gallery in historic, central Hobart. Gallery Director, Steven Joyce is passionate about art and offers discerning advice through the market with confidence. The gallery delivers a highly personalised approach that draws on well-established relationships with artists and curators. Despard aims to deliver the most desirable and highest quality works from both established and emerging artists nationally and internationally. The gallery will now be able to offer the creative community a unique venue to hire, valuations of modern works of art, furniture and design objects. For years, Steven has also offered private art consultancy for businesses and individuals, a personalised service offered to clients with a specified outcome in mind.
