The Tasmanian Copper and Metal Art Gallery is located at Carrick, northern Tasmania. The gallery features work by Tasmanian metal craftsman Mirek Marik.

The gallery also includes paintings, sculptures, murals and jewellery. Opals, crystals and other semi-precious stones are on display. A number of gifted artists and craftspeople live and work in northern Tasmania.
