The Four Elements is based on Earth, Fire, Water & Air.  This is a continuation of work Audrey exhibited regionally in 2014.

Chelle & Kathy Duo

Chelle Destefano & Kathy Smith:

  • From 2/7/2016 to 1/8/2016
  • Exhibition Opening: 5-7pm 2/7/2016
  • Guest Speaker: Penny Griggs - General Manager SALA Festival

Chelle Destefano, an international artist, born in Melbourne and living in Adelaide paints using watercolour and mixed media to depict her quirky view of the world. Some of her artworks are serious, funny, sad, or lighthearted. As she travels through life and the world, she is faced with things that awe her mind or make her feel things, and she connects those into her paintings. She is a visual storyteller and often has found, without knowing, her stories in her artworks become the others' stories. A viewer will come and see her artworks and always at least one will say "that is my story too" and they feel a connection to her artworks.

Kathy Smith lives in the small town of Strathalbyn in South Australia and over the last few years have taken up painting mainly in acrylics with some charcoal occasionally added in. Since a early age she has always loved drawing but was never brave enough to add paint to paper. She has been exhibiting at the Stationmasters Gallery, Strathalbyn and has some paintings in a local cafe called Cart and Kettle. Changing a blank canvas into something beautiful is very rewarding and she hopes people get some enjoyment from viewing them.

Pauline Peters:

  • From 6/3/2016 to 29/3/2016
  • Exhibition Opening: 6/3/2016
  • Guest Speaker:Peter Bates & Leeza Peters

Pauline Peters has been interested art since she was a small child. It was after moving to the picturesque southern seaside of Christies Beach with her writer husband that she began painting Australian scenes for overseas markets.

Art was put on hold for a few years while Pauline was raising two young daughters and working full time. However, her passion for art could not be suppressed and with regular trips to the Flinders Ranges and various beaches she once again began to capture Australia’s beauty and magic on canvas.

Pauline exhibits in both city and country regions and many of her works have been sold locally and abroad.

Painting works for this exhibition has given Pauline much pleasure and she hopes you enjoy it too...

BLACK AND WHITE REALISM

Peter Consadine:

  • From 5/2/2016 to 29/2/2016
  • Exhibition Opening: N/A
  • Guest Speaker: N/A

Peter Consadine spent twenty-five years as a professional dancer, performing with the Australian Ballet Company and as a Freestyle Dancer. In 1998 he became the number one Freestyle Dancer in the world.

After being a Personal Trainer for twenty-seven years, Peter sustained a severe and debilitating back injury and sadly had to retire from dancing. Unable to work and after losing almost everything he had, he turned to his only other passion, Art.

He picked up a paintbrush, taught himself to paint and three years later, this is the result...

Enjoy the exhibition.
