I was in at the very beginning of the Burra Regional Art Gallery organising the volunteer roster and helping curate and hang local artists’ work there. I still exhibit my work there and have had work in galleries in Adelaide. I’m still on the volunteer roster for the Burra Art Gallery and now also volunteer as a tutor in Watercolour for the U3A in Burra. I paint mainly in watercolour, pastel and mixed media, and have won awards in each of these media. My subjects are mainly flowers, people, landscape and occasionally portraits.
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.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.
