Take a walk through the exhibition with Gallery Curator, Fleur Peters
Many thanks to Country Arts SA for their support in producing this video and making it available on Vimeo..
It has been wonderful to meet so many amazing art lovers this month as so many of you have joined us for our Adelaide Art exhibition How Do We Love Thee? Let Us Count The Ways … Kangaroo Island Grass Tree and Green Carpenter Bee.
So much has happened. So many amazing Kangaroo Island artists have been able to spend time with us and met the people who have chosen to take a special piece of art into their lives and homes.
With so many beautiful moments to look back on, it’s hard to know where to start this, our very first post on the new blog. The only real solution is to share some of the most memorable in a series of posts over coming weeks. But today I’m thrilled to be able to give you a unique look inside our 2016 exhibition at the National Wine Centre.
Curator’s Walk and Talk
On Tuesday 23rd of August I had the pleasure of conducting a Curator’s walk and talk for staff and volunteers at the State Herbarium. We also opened the event to the public and were pleased to have some of you join us. It was wonderful to have the video team from Country Arts SA along for the walk, and I was thrilled to receive the video footage, which you can watch above. I want to especially thank Matthew Bennett at Country Arts for making the effort to get the video edited and uploaded for us while the Exhibition is still running.
If you joined me for the walk and talk, I hope this video will give you a nice way to look back on the time you spent with us. If you haven’t managed to make it to the National Wine Centre to see this amazing collection of Kangaroo Island Art, it will give you just a glimpse of what is waiting here for you for just one more day!
All good things…
As the final day of our 2016 Kangaroo Island Artists exhibition in Adelaide draws near, I can’t help but wish we could stay longer and share more with you, but we must soon return to beautiful Kangaroo Island and begin planning our next exhibition.
SALA 2016 has given us another uplifting opportunity to share the beauty of the Island and her artists with the people of Adelaide, but it is certainly not over yet. Join us tomorrow for the final day of How Do We Love Thee? Let Us Count The Ways … Kangaroo Island Grass Tree and Green Carpenter Bee as we bid goodbye to Adelaide for another year.
