November/December exhibition: SA Love Art Bar, 52 Sturt Street, Adelaide.

The dynamic Ms Emma Hack has been busy forming SA Art Collective and setting up a new Gallery space, shop and bar at 52 Sturt Street, Adelaide City.

Along with a number of other local Artists, I have work in the first exhibition at this lively new space. The exhibition theme is “SA Love”.

There is also a gift shop – and Christmas is coming!

So get along this week or soon, have a glass of local wine and a nibble or two and check it out!

Opening times are 12-6, Thursday -Sunday at this stage (it is still young!)

An Impromptu exhibition

It is the Adelaide Fringe, and I’ve suddenly found myself involved in a “Fringe” exhibition at the new and lovely Studio Bowden.

The planned exhibition fell through, and I was asked to fill the gap! The exhibition begins on February 26th and runs through until March 6th.

I’m showing landscape based works – swing by for a look!

 

Studio Bowden is at 91A Drayton street Bowden.

Exhibition hours are:

Feb 2016 26, 27 and 28

March 2, 3,5 and 6,

Daily 11 am – 5pm

Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Emma Hack Art Prize exhibition.

My Video Drawing work entitled “DNA” has been selected for the Emma Hack Art Prize Exhibition at the Adelaide Fringe.

Emma Hack’s Exhibition celebrates the work of South Australian Artists, and this year the theme is “Identity”.

The exhibition is in the Festival Theatre Foyer, and officially opens Thursday 11th February at 6pm.

It can be viewed any day from 9 until 5 and when events are on at the theatre, and runs until March 13th.

A winner will be selected by a panel of judges , and there is also a people’s choice award – voting  can be done on line here and works can be purchased online here. A list of finalists can be found here

In my video work, the viewer can “participate” in the drawing transformation of one family member to the next. The unique qualities of digital drawing enable the drawing process to be replayed and preserved.

Our DNA determines in part our unique and at the same time composite identity. This animated series of portrait drawings explores that fascination we have with family likeness.

To see the movie, visit the exhibition at the Adelaide Festival Theatre, Feb 11th until March 13th!

Slippage

My small SALA exhibition opens at Jorells Face Hair Body, City Cross, Adelaide tomorrow. There are a number of patched and slashed digital drawings in light boxes, and four paintings. I’ve also made a very large light box using the salon’s advertising window and transforming it with an extra large print of one of my iPad drawing “mash-ups”.

It’s fun, and my own little plug for observational drawing and the primacy of “seeing”.

Drinks with the Artist are from 5-7, and the exhibition runs for a month.

Gleam – drawing to a close

“Gleam” finishes this Saturday, 22nd November at 5pm. It is my current exhibition of drawings and paintings at Hill Smith Gallery, 113 Pirie Street, Adelaide. The gallery is open from 10-5, Tuesday until Friday, and 2-5 on Saturday. My work is upstairs on level 1, and on the ground floor is a beautiful exhibition by Thom Buchanan. I won’t be exhibiting for a while, so if you can get along to see it I’d be really happy!

Why I have not been in the Studio

We have just finished the wonderful mad three or so weeks of the Adelaide Festival and Fringe. Artist’s week, The Adelaide International and The Adelaide Biennial have managed to keep me away from my studio in large chunks.

I was intensely engaged for over two weeks in the Studio Orta workshop, making hearts for Jorge Orta’s Heart Project. It was an inspiring insight into the potential of collaborative and community based Art action. The results, and other work produced by Lucy and Jorge Orta and their collaborators can be seen at the Jam Factory gallery in Adelaide until the end of March, as part of “Apart , we are together”, the Adelaide International exhibition.
