My exhibition – Lake Eyre, the Long Shot, which was so popular in the Flinders Ranges last year has gone on display in Adelaide.
If people in Adelaide are interested in looking at the work it can be seen in the foyer of Atkins Technicolour at 89 Fullarton Road in Kent Town, Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings during business hours.
The exhibition will run at least until the end of March and possibly into April.
The friendly staff at Atkins can help with some information as well.
The detail and colour in the large printed images are far more graphic than can be seen on this website.
There were 16 prints in my “Lake Eyre – The Long Shot Exhibition”…..this is one that didn’t get included in the posts here on The Sentimental Bloke.
However, I have now put them all together under the one heading on the website. This can be accessed by clicking on the heading “Lake Eyre Exhibition” on the line at the top of the page.
Subscribers who receive their posts by email can also go to the page by clicking here.
Enjoy the images.
The strange patterns are waterways ….where on the odd occasion it rains around Lake Eyre, water is channelled onto the salt lake.
Lovely patterns too where algae stained salt water meets the salt of the lake’s ever-changing coast line.
Another two images from high above this amazing lake which are part of my Lake Eyre exhibition now on at the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna until September 8.
Two more of the works in my Lake Eyre exhibition where salt is the primary ingredient.
A meeting of rich textures…desert dunes running into a dry salt channel but salt water stained pink with algae.
Again abstract shapes but in reality the desert sand dunes meeting the salt of the Lake Eyre coastline.
It might be an appropriate time to air the photographs that make up my Lake Eyre Exhibition that’s currently on display at the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna as part of the SALA festival in South Australia and the up-coming annual “Brush With Art” program in the Flinders Ranges.
Over the next couple of weeks I will show the whole 16 photos of the exhibition interspersed with the regular range of image that appear here.
There is quite a variety of landscapes in the exhibition where each image is printed and framed to about a metre in size.
Two of the images have already been posted. They can be seen here and here.
Looking back since making the decision to hold my upcoming Lake Eyre Exhibition there’s been a host of hurdles to overcome…but probably the biggest has been transporting all 16 prints and frames from Adelaide, 500 kilometres to Parachilna where the exhibition opens this Saturday night.
It took about fours hours to pack them in my vehicle (fresh from the muddy dilema in the previous post)) and twice as long as that to transport them yesterday.
However they all arrived in one piece.
Hanging the exhibition at the Prairie Hotel starts Friday.
All accommodation for opening night has been filled with people coming from as far afield as Adelaide and even Sydney.
Above is one of the images from the exhibition. It is quite a large print, around size A1 – lots of detail and texture in the landscape which unfortunately is lost in the smaller offering that is posted here.
There has been so much attention on the flooding of the lake over the last couple of years it seems that waiting until the end of the rush might prove to be a good way of redefining the beauty of this amazing place.
In my home state we have a annual event called the South Australian Living Artists Festival (SALA).
It is a really great opportunity for artists in all forms of the arts to exhibit their works and it’s is well patronised.
This year I was fortunate to win, with the above photo, the Atkins Technicolour Photographic Award for Artists working with photo based artwork.
It is one of the works in my upcoming Lake Eyre exhibition which starts on August the 4th.
Details of the exhibition are here.
Everybody is welcome. I will be in attendance on some of the days during the exhibition dates so drop in if you are in the area.
With this photograph I am getting a little closer to the most beautiful ones I took on the recent flight over Lake Eyre.
The trip wasn’t so much about recording the different stages of the Lake filling and receding but about the wonderful textures, colours and patterns that can be found there.
Unfortunately some of the conditions that were there when I flew over the Lake and its surrounds in April have changed…particularly the rain water seen here in one of salt pans.
I have posted a couple of other salt pan shots in the Overflow section of the website but I’m saving the rest for my exhibition on Lake Eyre at the Prairie Hotel in Parachilna starting August 4.
The prints have been completed and are currently being framed.
The reaction of those who have seen them so far is very encouraging.
