Hidden places, hidden lives

A thought-provoking photographic narrative reflecting the experiences of people living in Adelaide’s Supported Residential Facilities. This collection of photographs is a collaborative project, created by residents mentored by four well-known local photographers, who have built up the confidence and enhanced the photographic skills of residents. The exhibition explores inclusion and citizenship of this generally unknown community.

Fletch and Zed

Fletch and ZedAs part of SALA 2013 Photographer and former AIPP state President Mark Zed and stencil artist Fletch Cuts will be exhibiting recent works at the Halifax Cafe. The work will be up for the duration of the SALA festival. We enjoyed a great opening night with wine and mini Cornish Pasties. The work fits with a rustic theme and shows two artists in total control of their medium. I highly recommend, to any SALA fans, to add this to their tour schedule. Paul Atkins

No Ordinary World

I had the pleasure of attending Kerin Burford and Shona Henderson's first collaborative exhibition at Cibos Gouger Street last night. The two talented photographers are working together under the label "Two Little Birdies". "No Ordinary World" is a collection of photographs that have been assembled over several years travelling to South East Asia. The Two Little Birdies have been hatching this exhibiton for a long time, and I think this will be the beginning of a regular endeavour now the first has been hung and is successful.

Cibos was packed with friends family and admirers. Everyone had a favourite. The mix of colour and monotone, portraits and landscapes was unexpected and shows a strong connection with the subjects and the region. Congratulations Shona and Kerin, we've been waiting a long time for this, and it was great.

Atkins are proud to be a part of the production and sponsorship of "No Ordinary World"

'Snapped' is up and running.

August 3rd – 26th 2012 Marc Bowden’s exhibition of carefully stolen street moments will be showing at the lab from this Saturday the 4th until August the 26th. We are very proud to have been asked to be a SALA venue by this talented photographer. We are equally proud to have produced the work with Marc’s guidance. It is our first exhibition as a venue and we are also a sponsor, so please call in and see Marc’s work.

The opening was a great success, catered for by Pam Allen of "House in Order".

Here is a statement from Marc about this exhibiton:

What fascinates me about photographic images captured ‘on the hop’ are those that have distilled something remarkable from the seemingly unremarkable, captured a moment easily missed or dismissed, or are graphically rich. Great images perfectly resolve any one of these principles, but the truly exceptional epitomize all three. That’s the drive behind each image in snapped.

Hume family's 'Constructed'

Annabel, Briony and David Hume are exhibting together at the Citadel Gallery from August 3rd to the 19th.

Annabel presents a series of small cast bronzes, interesting both for their technical virtuosity and their subversion of traditional textures, as knitted and woven fabrics are reproduced in metal. Briony takes the text of her own short story and combines this with fragments, both literal and metaphoric, of her narrative in a series of mixed media pieces with silk screen and found materials on fabric.

David presents a series of twelve views of venice - la città perfetta; mosaics of time and space, fragments of the city reflecting a whole. the work is offered as a limited edition of 20 sets of fine art prints.

We are proud to have worked with David in the production of la città perfetta, the pieces are an exquisite recall of a moment in time, and are in beautifully presented boxed sets.

Opens: August 3rd 2012, 6-8 pm Dates: Fri 3 Aug to Sun 19 Aug 2012 Hours: Sat - Sun 12-5, Tues-Fri 2-7, Closed Monday Address: 24 Rosa St Goodwood, SA
