SALA Exhibition of works by Amanda Chalmer.
Capturing moments in life gaining inspiration from relationships and places travelled, to create strong conceptual bodies of work.
The use of paper pulp for the PULP.it exhibition has allowed for the embedding and inclusion of materials that tell a personal narrative whilst exploring the potential and aesthetics of the media.
“I believe my work connects with the viewer on various levels as each piece is open to personal interpretation.”
A visual arts educator with a whim to exhibit when time permits. Amanda’s work has a strong conceptual base and is inspired by relationships and states of being. The media used is diverse and is dictated by the narrative and intent at the time.
REFLECTIONS IN LIGHT
Lynn Lobo is a painter and an awareness facilitator. The many small oil paintings in this exhibition are from her study tour of Spain and Portugal where she studied the paintings of Joaquin Sorolla, a Spanish master of light. While painting the light in Spain and Portugal, Lynn reflects on her Indian-Portugese heritage. She explores white in relation to colour and the process of internal decolonisation. Don’t miss her artist talk at the opening.
What if we just decided to love and accept ourselves, and everything that encompasses; including how we view ourselves, our bodies, circumstance, even the choices that have landed us on the path that we are walking in this moment.
Rather than strive for what we think we could or even should be, perhaps this one choice would create more space in our lives for more joy, freedom and appreciation. Then just maybe that space of acceptance would grow within us and flow on effecting all of those we love and care about including our children.
Marek’s work reflects an awareness of the Australian light on the environment. Here, colours are interacting with each other and the interactions in the spaces between forms are as important as the forms themselves. Charming in dynamic design and with a variety of colours depending on the time of the day or season. Mallee trees have become central themes in many of his paintings.
Simone has worked as a professional artist for more than 30 years - awarded a 1st class honours degree in fine art, specialising in ceramics, from London University in 1979 Since then has had studios in London, Edinburgh and Liguria in Italy. She has exhibited her work widely in Europe and also in America. For the last three years she has been living and working in South Australia.
Simone`s work has evolved over the years, partly in response to the different locations in which she has lived. Her sculpture is mainly figurative although not always realistic; capturing the way people move and interact.
Paintings by Alan Todd
IMMENSAE[boundless] is a series of works that draws upon ideas and approaches I have used over a lifetime. With origins in the late 60s, my work derives from the transition between Abstract Expressionism, which had dominated the previous two decades, and the post modernists and conceptual thinkers to come and treads an uneasy path between the various modes of thought. In essence the paintings are born on the canvas but on the one hand there is the quest for an unadulterated artistic freedom guided by instinct and born out of gesture and line and on the other the interpretation small, seemingly insignificant, moments in time though a personal iconography.
Opening Event: Lynn Elzinga-Henry and Suzi Windram
have worked together extensively in a variety of media and this exhibition explores convergent themes of the natural and metaphysical world.
The works are realized through sculptural pieces formed from the earth’s clay and imagined gardenscapes on natural fibre textile wall pieces.
“It’s Quiet Here” is an exhibition of new works using the mediums of ceramics, sculpture, mixed media and ‘shibori’.
Adelaide Artists Rebecca McEwan, Kylie Nichols, Kate Fitton and Sonya Moyle explore the beauty of the unsullied natural world and the seemingly unspectacular essence of the built environment. These explorations consider their emotional connection to place in our diverse Australian landscape.

Still Point showcases the photographs of one of Australia’s best documentary photographers, Robert McFarlane. The exhibition features images from the 1950s to the 1990s and includes images from the archive that were never intended for publication. Known for his iconic portraits and natural affinity for light, this exhibition explores how McFarlane’s images have a stillness and depth not always noticed as he takes us into intriguing visual spaces and encourages us to think about the world we inhabit. McFarlane talks about photography as ‘a moment of interchange between the ordinary and the extraordinary’.
This exhibition will show just how he captures the extraordinary in his images, from the famous and well known to the everyday moments. The images encourage you to look deeper, finding your way through the layers and exploring the many points of stillness within. McFarlane has written extended captions for the images, inviting viewers into the scene he witnessed and captured, giving insight into the personality behind the image and providing a glimpse into his practice.
The exhibition includes 56 black and white framed images, including 6 large, 45 medium and 5 small photos. Digital exhibition room brochure, wall vinyls and interpretative panels supplied.
