On January 4th, 2013, bushfire raged through the communities of Forcett, Dunalley and the Forestier and Tasman Peninsulas, devouring almost everything in its path.   The Out of the Ashes Photography & Art Exhibition not only documents the devastation and recovery, it is also a testament to the strength of the community, the resilience of the human spirit and the healing power of the creative process.   The exhibition will be on display at the Asylum, from 1 November until 1 December, 2013.
