I Am An Artist: It's Exquisite

I had the joy of seeing the 'I Am An Artist' Exhibition at the Millicent Library and Art Gallery yesterday, and let me tell you, it was amazing. There was beautiful provocative work from Limestone Coast artists Ann Carpenter, Kirsten Johnston and Andrea Bartetzko as they explored their identities as creatives. Glencoe-based artist Ann Carpenter had a sensual series of art work exploring femininity through an old nursery rhyme about the roles of wives and mothers. Kirsten Johnston expressed her love of the environment through bold choices with ink, but also took the time to reflect through self-portraiture. And Andrea Bartetzko added a welcome splash of bold colour to the surrounds. Her paintings with lemons, flowers and tamarillos were a particular favourite of mine. The exhibition runs until September 15 as part of the SALA (South Australian Living Arts) Festival, and is just gorgeous. As always practice self-distancing, but truly, take some time to see it.
