OFF TO EXPLOIT THE ANTIPODES
In November 2021 Elizabeth Barsham exhibited eight paintings in an exhibition entitled Understory at Nolan Art Gallery, 1st floor, Salamanca Arts Centre, in Salamanca Place, Hobart.
Together they tell the story of the colonisation of Tasmania in the nineteenth century. They are big, colourful and humorous but the serious intent is not lost.
In this booklet you will find reproductions of all eight paintings accompanied by a thoughtful, poetic essay by Tasmanian Aboriginal artist Jen Wagner. Perfect stocking-filler for this Christmas!

JONES FAMILIES OF JERICHO
Notes on various Jones families living in the Jericho and Lower Marshes areas in Tasmania in the early nineteenth century.
Despite rumours to the contrary, there are not two of me. I began my career as E.M. Christensen, but later changed my surname to Barsham. In general life and when I am teaching I am Elizabeth Barsham. I write as E.M. Christensen. My paintings have been signed "Barsham" since 2006.
