About the artwork:

Chung Gon’s Orchard (Apples, Plums and Cherries)


The Chinese community has long been an important part of Launceston and James Chung-Gon and his family have played a major role in its heritage. The name Chung-Gon has a long history in the north of Tasmania through Chung-Gon’s generosity and business operations.

Over the years, Chung-Gon has owned and operated market gardens and orchards located in South Launceston, Relbia and Turners Marsh.

About The Celestials collection:

The Chinese community, or the Celestials as they were respectfully known, were amongst some of the first pioneers to settle in the North East of Tasmania. The collection acknowledges the Chinese people, connections, events and their cultural heritage including a flotilla, carnivals and the brilliant colours of the apple, plum and cherry orchards of Chung Gong and his family at Turners Marsh.
