Arts Breakfast at the arts end of the world

A Bounty of Promise @ Art Gallery of SA

The  Gallery’s latest exhibition SA Illustrated: Colonial Painting in the Land of Promise is bound to give many new insights into Adelaide and why we are such an artistic community. For anyone  that maybe feeling a bit indifferent to the idea of colonial painting you’re very likely to  find it surprisingly fascinating– not just for its varied content but also for its accompanying exhibitions: Bounty: Nineteenth-Century South Australian Gold and Silver and the 21st century responses by Ali Baker, James Dodd and Peter Drew in South Australia Illustrated: From the Street.

The three exhibitions plus a very quirky drawing-room for children and adults makes for quite a unique experience into our colonial past. Gallery Director, Nick Mitzevich talks with Nikki Marcel about the exhibitions and breaking preconceived ideas about colonial art.
