Painted On Wednesdays !!!

Our Wednesday evening artists' group has done a mighty job of setting up their first exhibition.
It was opened by Pam Morphett an original member of the Pichi Richi Painters from which this group is derived.

There is a diverse range of art and craft works which indicates that more than just painting is the focus of the evening get togethers.

Congratulations to everyone, we know it is not always easy to put yourself out there.
















The recent Solar Dyeing workshop was a success and people made many pieces that can be added to their collection of original fabric pieces.


The next workshop is Waterless Lithography with Simone Tippett followed by Embroidery with Allison Lewis.

A COUPLE OF GREAT STORIES

September has been full of surprise and delight.
We regularly get customers visiting the gallery who have been given the recommendation by staff at The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden however Cheryl and Andy actually stayed an extra night in port Augusta so they could visit The Platform. They were our first happy customers for A Brush With Art.

Keeping the post code details has been interesting. So far this month we have had visitors from Melbourne, Queensland, Melrose, Arizona, Spain and France along with our fabulous local patrons.
The writers group in collaboration with The local library hosted an afternoon with  poet  Manal Younus. Everyone was inspired with the way Manal presented her work.



Big Congratulations to Gayle Naughton who sold her first Painting.. Yay!!! onward and upwards from here Gayle. We also appreciate your involvement on door duty along with our other wonderful volunteers.

September 2018 - A Brush With Art

Image
Once again we have connected with the Flinders Ranges "A Brush With Art". This gives all our artists the opportunity to exhibit new works and provides a great venue for tourists who visit The Flinders Ranges during Spring for this annual event.

The gallery has been transformed once again thanks to those members who have the eye for styling pieces and creating some order to what is generally a very eclectic collection of Art and Craft.

Congratulations to all involved.

A Brush With Art runs from September 8th To October 9th.
Details of the discovery trail can be found at   https://abrushwithart.com.au

August brings us closer to November when The Music Club will hold their annual concert.
Saturdays are busy all day with musicians practicing their pieces.
The club is also holding their annual workshop event on August 18th and 19th so the gallery will be busy all weekend.



Kerry's "Acrylic Pour" workshop was a great hit and another buzz at the gallery on Saturday. Thank you Kerry, there was a lot of preparation in this workshop and some brilliant outcomes .Thanks to Morgan and Beth from the Photographers' Group for some great shots.













The Photographers' "DOORS"  exhibition is providing some delight for visitors both local and from further afield. An artist from Moonta is hoping to take the concept back to her local art group so it seems we are trendsetters.


Sales have been brisk this month and as usual include a wide variety of items from large prints and pastels to small craft items. Congratulations to all.
