An ongoing love affair with Kangaroo Island

Fine Art Kangaroo Island and the Kangaroo Island NRM Board are again teaming up to bring an exhibition showcasing the island’s beauty to the National Wine Centre as part of the 2014 SALA Festival.

Thoughts of Kangaroo Island generally evoke images of dramatic coastlines and wild, windswept beaches. Less well-known are the island’s fresh water lagoons and river systems an essential source of life for a myriad of species. These largely overlooked pristine and fragile ecosystems are the focus of this year’s exhibition entitled ‘How do we love thee? Let us count the ways… Kangaroo Island Wetlands and Waterways’.

Nineteen of the island’s award winning established and exciting emerging artists present their personal experiences of the island’s freshwater and surrounding environments using a wide range of media.

Finely crafted silver jewellery, recycled found objects, large striking sculptures as well as more traditional oil paintings and photography comprise a fascinating array of artworks exploring the theme in diverse and dramatic ways.

The exhibition is open 9.00 am—5.00 pm Monday to Friday and 10.00am—5.00 pm on weekends until 25 August. For more information please contact Natural Resources Kangaroo Island.
