Refuge, a personal escape, is the photographic work of 12 emerging South Australian artists.
Emma Hack, award winning body artist, opens an exciting new exhibition by 12 local photographers.
The month long exhibition at the Wheatsheaf Hotel, Thebarton explores the theme of refuge as a personal escape. The photos bring to light our sanctuaries and the places we choose as safe-havens from our hectic lifestyles. In our stressed-out lives of mobile phones, voice mail, e-mail, we all need a place where we can retreat and reflect and truly be ourselves.
The participating group of artists met through worldwide photo-sharing site, Flickr, and have turned their online union into a meaningful collaboration. Flickr staff member, George Oates, born and bred in Adelaide, has spent many happy hours at the exhibition's venue, the Wheatsheaf Hotel.
You can meet and have a drink with the photographers at the opening night, which starts at 7pm on Thursday, June 7th. They’ll be happy to discuss their work and interpretation of the theme.
The exhibition continues until Monday the 2nd of July.
Wheatsheaf Hotel, 39 George Street, Thebarton, Adelaide 5031, (08) 8443 4546. Mon-Fri 11am-12am, Sat 12pm-12am, Sun 12pm-9pm.
