Burragah Adventures II latest Top of Torrens exhibition

Burragah Adventures II is the first new exhibition to be featured at the Top of The Torrens Gallery in Birdwood for 2020.

The official opening by Bron Spartalis resulted in a cheerful gathering of about 50 people in attendance on February 2.

In addition to commending the Burragah Art Group on their vibrant and diverse display of work, Bron also spoke about how she was intrigued by not only how artists interpret what they see, but also how they as individuals see and interpret colour so differently.

Visitors to this exhibition will be treated to a visual feast with the works on display encompassing many styles, medium and subject matter.

Acrylics on canvas range from a petite quirky 'Laughing Emu' by Nancy Nieuwenhoven, to large abstracts from Cheryl Shammall, Margaret Tuckey and Barry Maguire.

The diversity of this medium is further demonstrated in works covering an array of subject matters by Jan Henningsen, Ann Davenport, Mary Larkin and Jutta Prus.

Lovers of watercolour will be taken on a journey through landscapes and gardens, be invited to afternoon tea, on fishing trips and walks in the rain by Peggy Hayden, Judith Strikis and Margaret Tuckey.

Peggy Hayden has also chosen oil paint as the best medium to capture a visit to Tuscany, with Margaret Tuckey and Margaret McKenzie doing likewise with landscapes closer to home.

Alison Carter elected to team watercolour with ink for her two large free flowing landscapes.

A mix of media has been used by Ann Davenport in her piece 'What's ahead'.

Ann has offered to donate the proceeds from the sale of this piece to a local bushfire relief fund.

The exhibition will run through until Sunday, March 29.

Top of the Torrens Art Gallery and Gift Shop is open Wednesday to Sunday 11am-4pm, 9 Shannon Street Birdwood.
