A truly collaborative exhibition, HEARTLAND is funded by Arts SA which has enabled the artists to realise their full potential, resulting in a fully engaging exhibition - one of the best I've ever attended.
The Studio has been given a HEARTLAND makeover and offers educational art activities. School groups are welcome.
The Studio has had a HEARTLAND makeover - seen here are opening night guests of all ages keenly participating.
Annalise Rees' installation Latitude/Longitude invites guests to "make your place, shape your space; draw, cut, fold and build your place in the world; be the creator of your universe". Opening night guests were readily accepting Annalise's invitation to do just that (I had to drag my son away - he was hooked).
One of Paul Sloan's images is projected by laser at night onto the backdrop of a neighbouring building - spectacular!!
On opening night, there was a brilliant laser light image display of Paul Sloan's artwork - later seen in real form in the exhibition.
We enjoyed this exhibition so much that we'll be returning for a couple more rounds of interactive heaven. On loan (for free) from the information desk are iPods which have the QR reader downloaded onto them to enable visitors to enjoy a self-guided audio tour. Alternatively, bring your own iPod, iPhone etc. with the QR reader installed and scan the QR code for HEARTLAND and enjoy!
Free personally guided tours are available daily and weekends will provide the opportunity to attend artist and curator talks.
Amy Joy Watson artfully and playfully dabbles with geometry and gravity in this awesome creation!!
