Artists’ Collective Kangaroo Island members are putting out their Favourite Things in the Artworks Gallery’s latest exhibition.
Come along at 4pm on Sunday 30 September for the exhibition opening by The Islander journalist, Stan Gorton, musical accompaniment (including My Favourite Things) by The Coat-hangers, local musicians Doug Gray and Les Montanjees, and drinks and nibbles.
The exhibition features Peggy Rismiller’s jewellery, Branks Gregor’s colourful paintings, Antien Furstner’s pottery, and beading and photography from new members and first-time exhibitors.
Other members’ favourite things are beaches, wood, native flora, textiles, the joy of applying paint, time and wine.
The exhibition continues for the month of October, 10am to 4pm every day during the school holidays, then Friday to Monday from 10am to 4pm after that.
Artworks Gallery at Baudin Beach is open for business during winter, 10 am to 4 pm every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We can also open by appointment – please contact Pauline on 8553 1483 or Patsy on 8553 1415.
The next exhibition for members begins on the long weekend in October with the theme Favourite Things. What’s your favourite thing in art or craft? Entry to the exhibition is for members only so (re)join now for 2018-19 online or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for a membership form.
You can help promote the artists and art of Kangaroo Island by voting for the ‘Welcome to Kangaroo Island’ art fence at the ferry entrance to Kangaroo Island, Penneshaw. Please vote before 5pm on Monday 20 November.
At the website, you need to register, so click on Register in top RH corner and follow the prompts including verifying.
Once that’s done, set your location which gives you an area you can vote in. Set Penneshaw South Australia and save the location (doesn’t matter where you actually are). You’ll then see the projects in the area (under Ideas on LH side). You have to vote for at least 3 and up to 5 projects (to even out voting so projects in low population areas (like ours) and with a small support base have a chance).
Please vote for ‘Welcome to Kangaroo Island’ and, if I may suggest, other worthwhile projects are Our Kitchen Sux for Kangaroo Island Gallery (our sister gallery in Kingscote), Enviroshed (the local school – so we can recycle soft plastic), and Revitalising Community Radio.
You’ll have to verify who you are with a code they send as a text (so you can vote only once).
Vote before 5pm, Monday 20 November.
And please pass on to friends who you think would also support this art initiative.
The next ‘glittering’ exhibition at KI Artworks gallery opens on 30 September.
Artists Collective members are busy making artworks on the theme ‘All that glitters …’ and with their boundless imaginations, the possibilities are, if not endless, then worth an October visit to the gallery.
The opening event will be held in KI Artworks gallery, Saturday 30 September, 4.30 to 6.30pm. We hope to see you there. And if you can’t make it that afternoon, drop into the gallery during October to see what’s glittering, and much more.
