Penny Choate and Donald Richardson have been together for many years, but they have separate studios and entirely separate practices. While both paint (and love the smell of oil-paint!), Donald is also a sculptor. Both have a great respect for the recognised masters of the ancient and modern past, and the work shown here does […]
STAGE ONE: two artists will be residence from Wednesday 22 July – Tuesday 28 July, 2015, and two from Wednesday 26 August – Tuesday 1 September, 2015. This will bookend SALA Festival 2015, and will be a registered SALA event.
Full Spectrum offers audiences a challenging and thoughtful view of photography today by presenting the image as both conceptual and cultural object; deconstructed, layered, distilled, practiced and valued. The artworks presented serve as reflections of each photographer’s concerns, explorations and pursuits of our technical craft. We have asked; what does the image mean? What is implied? Does the image remain inert within its frame and/or its file type? What form can the image take? What role does the viewer play in the photograph?
The WINGS exhibition was created by a group of people who attend and work at “the Port Pirie Hub” run by Spastic Centres of SA (scosa). Many of the works are created collaboratively, some are independently created. Some of the artists have a daily practice of creative expression, and they have worked towards this exhibition, developing and furthering their practice. Many would not have called themselves artists, yet art has become an everyday part of their lives. New talents and pleasures have been discovered through allowing arts practice to become a focus.

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 […]
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.
