h.ART are pleased to announce their inaugural Fringe exhibition event at the exciting new emerging arts venue at the State Heritage Onkaparinga Woollen Mill in Lobethal from 4 -19 March, 2017.

The focus is on the power of text and visual language to create dialogue.

There will be over 30 visual artists including 3 finalists from the Heysen Prize - India Flint, Robyn Finlay and Susan Bruce.

India Flint creates her works using wind fallen leaves, cloth and paper, stones and bones, words and drawings. She exhibited Shibusa, works which were created for and shown at the Ellen Noel Art Museum in Odessa, Texas in August 2016 at the old Onkaparinga Woollen Mills in Lobethal during January 2017. At the conclusion of the Shibusa exhibition, several pieces will be shipped to Holland where they will appear in the Earth Matters Exhibition, at the Textile Museum in Tilburg.

Robyn Finlay's current practice is a mix of textiles and printmaking using natural pigments and found objects such as rust, dirt, plant dyes and teabags.

Susan Bruce's artwork is concerned with themes of tactility and the textural and their potential to relay, highlight, and/or conceal the material of personal and collective memory. As a digital artist, she is intrigued by the expressive potential of layered, collaged, and manipulated images. Susan is currently residing in the United States where she is creating her piece for inclusion in the Words: seeing, hearing, feeling Exhibition.

The program will engage and involve artists from across Australia and overseas in a diverse range of artistic expressions from installation, textiles, film, painting and sculpture. It will also provide artists opportunities to merge and crossover into other arts fields.

The Story of h.ART

Developed in 2015, h.ART (Hills Art) has involved over 70 artists in 5 pop up exhibitions at the State Heritage Onkaparinga Woollen Mill.

h.ART comprises of community members interested in developing a lively arts centre in the Lobethal and surrounding hills area. With the support of Adelaide Hills Council, H.art has been conducting exhibitions in the Lobethal Woollen Mill complex, with two artists in residence and a textile group which meets monthly. The first exhibition attracted 42 artists and more than 100 artworks, including many from art schools, including the Adelaide Central School of Art. The Adelaide Hills Council supported many of the innovative ideas and provided 'pop up" spaces to showcase various Adelaide artists.

Following the success of the art exhibitions, H.art is expanding its art events to include a program of spoken word events. Words seeing, hearing, feeling will be the theme for their Fringe show.

The focus is on the power of text and visual language to create dialogue. This is the theme the artists have responded to.
