Autumn



I love autumn. The trees are so beautiful and melancholy, its my favourite time of year. These are a few pictures I had on my camera which sum up this month. The first is the big tree out the front of my house which has just always been there and is currently losing all its leaves making the most magnificent carpet. The second is a progress shot of a little ink and pencil sketch and the third is my new studio; a bit empty but to be filled up soon.

Happy autumn times!

Fontanelle: SENSATION SEEKERS

Fontanelle is a new gallery space just ‘northish’ of Adelaide. The opening “Sensation Seekers” was absolutely amazing, I got there early and it was already pretty busy with excited and enthusiastic art lovers.

All the people involved are fantastic people and it’s just really exciting to see a new art space in Adelaide.

In regards to the actual artwork on display, my favourites, well it was all good actually, but if I had to choose Amy Joy Watson's work really grabbed your attention as you entered the space and Ben Leslie’s work was impressive; comprised of found material collected during the process of turning this industrial building into an art space.

Of course I forgot my camera on the opening but here are some pretty pictures from the Facebook page J




What: SENSATION SEEKERS

When: opening night: 1st April 6pm. Exhibition runs to 29th April 2012.

Where: 26 Sixth St. Bowden, Adelaide 5007

From Fontanelle:
We are excited to announce the grand opening of Fontanelle Gallery & Studios with the group exhibition 'Sensation Seekers' curated by Director Brigid Noone. Our first show will feature new work by Fontanelle Committee and Studio members, Brigid Noone, Mary-Jean Richardson, Benjamin Leslie, Chloe Langford, Celeste Aldahn, Belle Bassin, Amy Joy Watson and Anna Horne. Also featuring work by Steven Carson, Maarten Daudeij, Carl Jiorjio and Sera Waters.

'Sensation Seekers' is curated around the desire to put together a collection of art works that each emanate their own perceptible auras - offering sensory experience in exchange for your physical and mental presence. The artists and their works are not limited to a particular genre, category or mood - only committed to the potential of art to 'enhance our capacity to grow and evolve through sensation'*
Fontanelle is a new gallery and studio complex located in Bowden, just beyond the Adelaide CBD. Fontanelle Gallery is a space for show-casing emerging and established contemporary artists and curators on a local, national and international basis. Working between artist-run communities and the contemporary commercial model, Fontanelle is run by a small committee headed by director Brigid Noone. The committee includes Ben Leslie, Mary-Jean Richardson, Celeste Aldahn and Chloe Langford.

Including a photography darkroom, a technical workshop, installation space, and a dedicated space for artist-led workshops, Fontanelle will be a valuable resource for studio artists and the wider community.
