Paintings and Photography by members of the Royal South Australian Society of Arts

For over 160 years Port Adelaide and its surrounds has been a busy commercial and residential area welcoming incoming sailors, migrants and tourists. For many years small groups of members of the Royal South Australian Society of Arts have met to paint and photograph the river, the boats and surrounding commercial and private buildings.

The works in this exhibition are a collection from artists from the past and those still creating today, using a variety of mediums – pencil, oil, acrylic and camera to record the ever changing and yet timelessness of the Port. Some works are borrowed from private collections, others are for sale.

A catalogue of exhibited works is available.

Where: Visitors Information Centre, Commercial Rd, Port Adelaide
Saturday May 1 – Sunday May 30, 2021 Hours: Wed-Sun 10:00am – 5:00pm, Mon-Tues CLOSED.

The Artists’ Connect gathering of RSASA members was held on March 26 in the RSASA gallery.

Penny Griggs, CEO of the Adelaide Central School of Art was the speaker. Penny asked each person that attended to talk about their art practice and then she provided information about the ACSA teachers and available courses. The Artists’ Connect Coordinator, RSASA member Jo Gardiner was very pleased with the attendance and positive response from members.

Jo will be running Artists Connect during Members’ exhibitions. Please contact Jo or the RSASA for details.
