Island to Inland
ISOLATED. PERSONAL. IMMERSIVE.
Islands are by nature isolating, and that isolation coupled with majestic natural surroundings can be inspiration galore to the creative soul.
Ten Kangaroo Island based visual artists are bringing ‘mainlanders’ a glimpse of the isolation and inspiration of island life in Island to Inland: contemporary art from Kangaroo Island, which opened at Flinders University City Gallery during SALA Festival 2017 and is now touring regional South Australia.
The artists have created new works on the theme of ‘isolation and inspiration’ for the exhibition, curated by Eleanor Scicchitano, Visual Arts Curator, Country Arts South Australia and Celia Dottore, Exhibitions Manager, Flinders University Art Museum and City Gallery University.
Featuring Audrey Harnett, Caroline Taylor, Deborah Sleeman, Indiana James, Janine Mackintosh, Kenita Williamson, Maggie Welz, Quentin Chester, Ria Byass, Scott Hartshorne.
