Mannum’s SALA exhibition, ‘Our Place, Our Space’ will continue at the Mannum Dock Museum’s Arnold Gallery for the month of September.
The exhibition was official launched by Councillor Simone Bailey on the 2nd August with 80 guests in attendance.
Simone said she was honoured to open such an inspiring event and impressed by displays from young, new artists, Indigenous artists and well-known local artists included in this exhibition.
“It is wonderful to see so much talent in our area and was fabulous to see such a great turnout for the opening”.
“We have had an overwhelming response to the exhibition with many of the works sold but will remain on display”, said curator Valerie Cox, Mannum Creative Communities.
“Twenty local artists are featured including new artists Zoe Nollen, Will Wagenknecht and Angela Cooper who are all seniors at the Mannum Community College”.
“Feedback has been so positive with Terese Stephens’ fresh flower and canoe display, ‘absolutely blooming amazing’, Steve Oatway’s birds are just amazing’, Sandi Kuehne’s works up to her award winning standard and Terry Chamberlain’s horseshoe sculpture, ‘Australian for space and place’”.
“The support from the Mannum Dock Museum’s volunteers and staff has been incredible and it is fantastic to see local works on display in the Arnold Gallery in our own backyard”.
“Our Place, Our Space” Exhibition brings a unique insight into the creativity of artists from in and around the Mid Murray Council region, showcasing and celebrating diversity of media and form from sculptures to canvas works, photography, found objects and much more; “Our Place, Our Space” promises to provoke and evoke!”
