An upcoming art exhibition will explore the colourful characters of the Fleurieu.
The Fleurieu is a lovely coastal part of South Australia, with the providence to have both wonderful vines and beaches. The Sea to the Vines festival over the Long Weekend in June is but one celebration of this winning combination.
But just who are the characters of this fine part of the world?
Many talented artists have worked on this theme, with some great prizes on offer. First prize is $3,000 for best overall, plus printing & framing to the value of $500 from Atkins Technicolour, and a camera plus tuition to the value of $300 from Diamonds Photographics.
