I love the things we have here in South Australia – the fabulous food, wine, people and places – beauty everywhere. And, for more beauty in my life, I own and operate a gorgeous little gallery called Mrs Harris’ Shop: www.mrsharrisshop.com.au
Forget 'best before'
There isn't much time left to catch one of SALA's tail-end exhibitions – and it's worth every bit of the effort to get to Praxis Artspace before closing day at the end of this week.
We're all familiar with the 'best before' dates on produce, but these three artists have turned it around to express their preference for using salvaged materials – be they natural or man-made – in their artworks.
Cynthia is the winner of this year's SALA Unitcare Moving Images Award for her video work Peri Urban Progress, on show for the exhibition. Take the time to lose yourself in this work and you'll see why it's a winner!
Don't be satisfied that this tiny taste sums up this wonderful exhibition. It doesn't! There's something new to enjoy and ponder at every turn, to say nothing of the inventive ways that these three artists have worked their magic. You'll not look at copper wire, water-damaged paper, or an old rainwater tank in the same way again – ever!
