Exhibtion by Artist Sonia Strong

“Tazzie the Turbo Chook Finds Her Feet”

A Rhyming Picture Book by Sonia Strong 

 Tasmanians will know and love our state's native hen (affectionately known as the 'turbo chook'). "Tazzie The Turbo Chook" is a chicken with a difference. Join her on her journey of self discovery, meet the animals with which she shares her rural home and discover along with Tazzie, what's so special about turbo chooks!

This colourful hard cover book for ages 2-5 encourages kids to find their own unique talents, introduces some of our lesser known native wildlife and touches on the themes of self acceptance and responsible pet ownership. The book and its associated original artworks and prints will be available at the Off Centre Gallery between the 19th September and the 3rd October. "Tazzie the Turbo Chook" is Tasmanian artist Sonia Strong's first children's book, however her usual artistic pursuits also centre around wild landscapes and seascapes and our enigmatic birdlife. More of her work can be viewed at
