The first SALA exhibition to be held at the Clare Art House, A Mixed Bag, was opened on Sunday.
Conceived by Anneliese Krieg, the exhibition features 12 local artists presenting a variety of creative works.
Guests enjoyed a rich and diverse display of original acrylics, oils, watercolours, pen and ink drawings, eco fibres, felt and mosaics.
They were also treated to an artistic array of nibbles, Clare Valley wines and a performance by local musician, Danny Hooper
Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council mayor Allan Aughey OAM opened the exhibition and spoke of exciting times ahead for the arts in the Clare Valley.
The Art House is a new venue which is available for artists to use free of charge. This generous initiative is inclusive and available for artists of all genres and levels.
Two gallery rooms and the hallway provide hanging space and a further two rooms offer workshop and meeting space.
It is a facility for painters, crafters, readers, writers and musicians and is great for fostering our creative community.
The artists involved in A Mixed Bag are Angela Butcher, Alex Cleland, Graciela Dorey, Stephanie Charlottte Griffen, Rebecca Hill, Anneliese Krieg, Jan Lee, Llewena Newel, Lyn Plug, Julianne Pulford, Di Maddern Robertson, Linda Stanway and Andrew Quixley. They would all like to express their gratitude for the opportunity to present their work at the Clare Art House.
A Mixed Bag runs throughout August and is open Friday – Monday, 10-4 at 8 Mill Street, Clare.
