Handmade in Cygnet - Open Studio Art Trail


Darren & Ruth Lindsell

Ripples Art Farm

Ripples Art Farm is the realisation of the lifelong dream of artists Ruth and Darren Lindsell to establish an art gallery, sculpture walk and retreat. Purchasing an organic apple and pear orchard at Petcheys Bay in 2013 was the beginning for this dream to become a reality. Over the past 5 years they both have been immersed in resurrecting the orchard and being hands on in the planning and building processes. Whilst this has been frustratingly slow, the creation and the emergence of the buildings, landscaping and artistic features are reflective of their deep involvement and interaction with the farm and its unique location in the Huon Valley.

Keeping in mind Ripples Art Farm is very much a work in progress, visitors to the farm, can walk the 1.5km sculpture walk, which starts at the studio on the banks of the Huon River, meanders through the Pear Walk, the pear and apple orchards and up through the coastal forest. Along the way, large sculptural works and installations are to be discovered as are the amazing views looking out over the Huon and towards the Hartz Mountains

Back down at the Studio, visitors can view the couples’ smaller sculptures and Ruth’s paintings, which are inspired by the natural world – featuring the Huon Valley and surrounds. For a taste of the farm, light refreshments will be available.

Unless otherwise stated, all artworks are for sale, the couple are also very happy to accept commissions.

Please note as this is a working farm, be aware that pets are not allowed on the property.
