Bazaar Bargains, Bizarre Battles and Gifted Graduates
Get ready for an Arts Bonanza on Friday 5th December with three great events scheduled by the Adelaide College of the Arts in Light Square designed to tempt and tease the visual, artistic and culinary senses.
First up and from 2pm until 7pm is the annual Arts Bazaar held at the Adelaide College of the Arts building in Light Square.
With over 40 stalls of South Australian artists and Adelaide College of the Arts students and graduates selling hand made jewellery, ceramics, glassware, screen printing, paintings, drawings, paper and fabric crafts, there is sure to be plenty of last minute Christmas gift ideas.
2014 Graduating Student Exhibition "GRAD SHOW"
Second up, and while you are in the Arts building, why not pop down to the basement for a viewing of the Grad Show. At the end of each year the graduating Bachelor of Visual Art and Design students exhibit a selection of their works in celebration of the completion of their study. These works are shown in the Light Square Gallery at the Adelaide College of the Arts centre basement and are on show from 27th November 2014 until the 22 January 2015.
Art Battle Spectacular
Last but not least, after seeing some of the static arts displays at the Bazaar and the Exhibition, why not head to Light Square for some real life dynamic arts. The third big arts event for the day is the Art Battle Spectacular where eight visual artists will fight it out to win the crowd's approval in a drop-out round robin flurry of paint, brushes, and music.
The Art Battle Spectacular is a pop up event in conjunction with Arts Bazaar where eight local artists will create artworks live in front of a crowd, revealing the much mystified painter's creative process.
It will be a competitive event challenging artists Andrew Colemen, James Dean, Ryan Wakelin, Lindsey Bryant, Reb Rowe and Nickas Serpantius (and more!) to execute their creative ideas as best as possible in timed rounds. The most successful artists will win the love of the audience to proceed in the competition with a winner eventually being crowned best in show.
Supplementing the above three arts events on Friday, December 5 in Light Square will be the Fork In The Road food trucks, the Yellow Bus Bar provided by Pop Up Productions and some live DJs headlined by local Adelaide favourite DJ Tr!p. The Stop In The Name Of Art open air gallery curated by Ryan Winter will also be exhibiting thus capping a full day of Arts within Light Square, and a unique way to start the weekend on what promises to be a balmy summer evening.
Little known fact : Colonel Light is buried beneath a monument consisting of a red granite monolith topped with a surveyor's theodolite, and is the only person of European descent (legally) buried within the city's "square mile".
