Drill Hall, Torrens Parade Ground, Tue 23 Feb
If you are in the city and have a bit of down time, stop by the 2016 Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition at the Drill Hall to view works by today’s new artists. Featuring pieces of artwork from the 2016 graduates of South Australia’s tertiary art institutions (School of Art, Architecture and Design, Adelaide College of the Arts, and Adelaide Central School of Art); the collection is a fun introduction to the artists and their skill.
The exhibition incorporates a variety of visual mediums, including painting, photography, video installations, jewellery and sculpture. The pieces are unique and show an emerging talent in the South Australia art scene. Some personal favourites include Karle Brasse’s Things Go Better With Coke, a commentary on today’s media on Grecian vases, Emmaline Zanelli’s photograph series Please Touch, and Andrew Clarke’s painting A Miscalculation In The Division Of The Energy Bill, a humorous take on the grand narrative style of painting.
The pieces are exhibited at the Drill Hall on Torrens Parade Ground, the beautiful white building just off North Terrace. The space is open, with enough room for each object to have its own impact, and the lighting shows off the works at their best. The exhibit is open from 10:30am – 4:30pm and the event is un-ticketed, but a $2 donation is kindly suggested.
And remember to vote for your favourite piece to win the People’s Choice Award, as every vote submitted is in the running to win an accommodation at The Watson.
The 2016 Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition is a perfect opportunity to see something a bit different at The Fringe and support our local artists. And if you feel like you didn’t have enough time during your first visit, the exhibition runs until the end of the Fringe.
2016 Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition continues at The Drill Hall, Torrens Parade Ground until Sun 6 Mar.
This is an un-ticketed Fringe event with a gold coin donation at the door. Click HERE for further information.
