An exhibition and research project to encourage interest by visual artists in the rich history of Burra. Artists have chosen aspects of the town's past activities, community and environment, using memory, imagination and curiosity to boost research skills.
The Burra Quilters have 24 members and between them have put together this wonderful exhibition of 50 articles. Their membership range in age from 10 to nearly 80. The youngest member Stella won first prize in last year’s Festival of Quilts in Adelaide. It is these precious young people we have to nurture. From […]
All are welcome to attend Burra Gallery's first exhibition for 2015 - "Artists of Note" - Gerhard Ritter and Alan Ramachandran in the Main Gallery and Annex, and Gerald Moore in the Bence Room. All three are popular and talented "artists of note", much in demand as teachers of drawing and painting in a diverse range of mediums. To enhance the theme even further, baritone Bruce Donald will perform at the opening at 5.30pm Saturday 14 February.
Leonard and Muriel’s love of travel has also ensured that we have pictures lovingly painted in places such as Italy, England and Ireland. He has also successfully used various artistic mediums in portraits, still life subjects and landscapes, but water colour is his acknowledged forté.
Come to the Goyder Region (just next door to Clare Valley) and visit the heritage mining town of Burra. Hidden away in its own little cup-shaped valley, the town’s pride and joy is the Burra Regional Art Gallery. See if you agree with us, that, outside the big centres, this is one of the best small regional galleries in Australia.
Making connections through art: Burra Regional Art Gallery fosters excellence in the arts, supports the work of regional artists and young artists and promotes community education in the arts.
The town’s artists are just plain lucky, having such a wonderful asset. We flock to the openings (read “parties”), celebrations of our creative impulses and the unique culture that inevitably arises in a town this isolated. The gallery is in demand with artists further away too, and with a lively and committed gallery committee to keep the ball rolling (and the paint flowing) this volunteer manned and managed gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday. Hours 1 – 4pm.
