Country Arts SA visits Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island served up quite a helping of visual artists when Eleanor Scicchitano, Visual Arts Coordinator and Craig Harrison, Manager Artform Development, of Country Arts SA visited recently.

It was quite a whip-round – 30 artists and their works, galleries with the works of many more, and almost 400 kilometres covered in two days. And I got to go with them.

I’ve written about and supported the artists and arts of Kangaroo Island for about 10 years, and I compiled the list of artists to visit.

I thought I knew quite a lot about these artists but now I’ve learned so much more. What a fine range of artists – working in so many media, with so many styles – we have as part of our tiny population of 4500.

So what stood out? A couple of things:

But there was so much more. I’m sorry I can’t mention them all. Come visit Kangaroo Island to see for yourself.
