Metro operators exhibit artistic side through photographs shot on the job

METRO has officially launched “Hobart from a Bus – an exhibition taken by Metro Bus Operators” at the Stable Gallery, Cooleys Hotel.

The free exhibiton, curated by Moonah Arts Centre arts officer Sean Kelly, will be on show for the month of February.

The new photographic exhibition highlights the many unique and interesting places Metro buses pass through while celebrating the contribution these areas make in fostering rich culture and a vibrant community.

Speaking about the exhibition launch, Metro chief executive officer Stuart Wiggins said: “Our bus operators are a talented group and they see some amazing sights during their day while transporting our community.

“We believe capturing Hobart through still images while going about your daily routine is a unique and authentic way to showcase our city,” he said.

Mr Wiggins said Metro was in a privileged position to play a key part in encouraging healthy and happy communities through providing essential, convenient services.

“We are regularly amazed by the rich essence of our community and the way it becomes apparent in both buildings, businesses and other areas of public use,” he said.

“Hobart has a lot to be proud of and this grass roots photographic exhibition captures the everyday uniqueness of the city.”

The free exhibition is open to the public daily until Friday 27 February. Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to visit.

Cooleys is located at 45 Main Road, Moonah.
