Snapshots From Life

A half gallery exhibition of artworks in various media by members of the Red House Group Inc

The theme for this Red House Group exhibition takes its inspiration from the photographic snapshot. Moments that record, holidays, adventures, family members, chores, hobbies, favourite foods, objects – anything that you can connect back to your own life.

Artists are required to create work to a specific size of 30cm x 40cm, it can be portrait or landscape, framed or unframed but must meet this finished size. 3D objects must reference the 30cm x 40cm and be no taller than 40cm.

Kaurna: Still Here

A half gallery exhibition of artworks in various media by Peter Turner & Clem Newchurch

Artists Peter Turner and Clem Newchurch are recipients of The Guildhouse First Nations Collections Project with the South Australian Museum (SAM), a collaborative project providing artists with the opportunity to research the Museum’s extensive collection and develop a new body of work for exhibition. The exhibition at Gallery M has been supported by the City of Marion, to celebrate and showcase First Nations artists as part of Reconciliation Week.

The artists responded to the George French Angas collection of 1880’s illustrations of botanicals, First Nations people and the south-eastern coastal landscape of South Australia, with a particular focus on works depicting Kaurna/Rammindjeri people painted between Adelaide and Cape Jervis. Utilising their deep connection to the landscapes depicted in the illustrations and incorporating their own research into their Ancestor’s practices, Peter & Clem have recreated carvings, art and craft pieces similar to what their Ancestor’s made prior to European colonisation.

Tender

A quarter gallery exhibition of textile artworks by Libby Pusz

Libby’s work utilises discarded or recycled fabrics like silk, linen, voile, tulle and lace, then stitches them onto natural fabrics in abstract applique designs. By using small pieces in the design, and leaving edges raw, she aims to draw attention to the qualities and construction of the textiles.

2022 exhibition timetable

Gallery M is a versatile exhibition venue, that can have up to four exhibitions running concurrently.
