Antigua and Lake Atitlan were the main areas I finally used up all of those old rolls of film in the fridge.
Mane played one-show only at Womadelaide on Sat March 11th.
The otherworldly vocals and charming stage presence of Port Pirie singer MANE (AKA Paige Renee Court) has quickly brought her to international attention, including exposure on Triple J Unearthed, shows in New York and Nashville, and two 2016 SA Music Awards. A standout live performer with her four-piece band, whose indie-folk music is laced with pop and blues. (text source, womadelaide.com.au).
The Only natural exhibition will be open to the public until the last customer leaves on the evening of Sunday October 2nd.
If you are visiting the adjacent OzAsia Festival the exhibition is easy to find at the eastern side of the King William Street Bridge on the banks of the River Torrens.
Thank you to all of those that helped with the staging of this exhibition with special mentions to the team at Jolleys Boathouse Restaurant, the SALA Festival Office, Atkins Photo Lab and the Port Adelaide Enfield Council for the Special Opportunity Arts Grant.
4,600 artists presenting work in 630 exhibitions. Start planning now.
The SALA website has all the exhibitions and events and you can search by location, medium and date etc.
Home or office?
And in the DIY spirit of SALA utilising the technology available to us I have installed an ordering system on this website. So if there is an artwork you like I would be more than happy to help you have one to display in your home or office or perhaps give as a gift. The photographs are not limited edition so reprints will be made as demands requires.
There are a variety of options available to purchase as unframed prints or in alternative finishes and frames. But first things first, pop down to Jolleys Boathouse before Friday September 30th and have a look.
The 2016 SALA Awards were announced on Friday July 8th.
There were 13 Award categories announced and I am very happy to be a finalist in two of them, The Centre for Creative Photography Latent Image Award and the Atkins Photo Lab Award.
On the night the CCP prize was awarded to Nathan Stoltz, however for the Atkins Photo Lab Award five exhibitions were selected and they will be judged at the venues during the SALA festival.
Funding appears to be secured to increase the capacity of Her Majesty’s Theatre.
The existing two levels of seating will be expanded to three, as it was originally over 100 years ago. Above are a few photographs I took in the existing ceiling space in 2012 and these reveal some of the original signage and decorative elements. Full story at the ABC News website.
The Edmar Castaneda Trio played two sets at Womadelaide 2016. I was front row for the last performance and it was a unique experience to see his exceptional talent on display.
These photographs can only start to capture the energy, but I highly recommend taking 5 minutes or so to watch this YouTube clip of him performing solo. (Live Sessions. Jazz at Lincoln Center).
Congratulations to Peter Barnes for his winning entry in the Open category of the All Connections to Unley Art Prize 2016.
