About Sawtooth ARI
Sawtooth ARI is an Artist Run Initiative gallery based in Launceston, Tasmania committed to servicing our community through the provision of a quality exhibition program.

Community Arts Program
We are committed to servicing our community through the quality of our exhibition program. Parallel to this we recognise that we are one of the few venues in the area capable of supporting community initiatives, and in this, occasionally use the umbrella of a Community Program to host events, exhibitions and workshops from selected organisations.
