Port City, the Beach Hotel's first exhibition was created by North-West artist and part-time satire singer, Ariel Pascoe.
Port City is packed with bright visions of Burnie's urban landscapes, from the city streets to the freight containers stacked upon the docks.
"I suppose if I lived in New York I'd paint New York but I don't. So I live here, this is what I paint," Pascoe said.
Pascoe previously exhibited at the Rialto restaurant in 2015 and during the MONA FOMA festival in 2010.
She said her style was inspired by comic book panels and painting was "impulsive ... something I've always done".
After Port City closes, The Beach Hotel hopes to host new exhibitions every two months.”
