A little late getting this fun exhibition up on the website – but it hasn’t stopped lots of people stopping by to have a look at The faces behind the feasts.
Each year, to celebrate the Tasting Australia festival and our fabulous food culture here in South Australia, Mrs Harris’ Shop stages a special exhibition.
Tasting Australia sets a theme and we follow suit – our exhibition becomes part of the ‘associated events’ program for the festival.
This year’s theme, ‘people’ set the tone – and it was obvious that portraits would be the order of the day. The brief to artists was fairly open – it didn’t have to be someone famous – just someone that they associated with producing a ‘feast’.
So, the result is a great mix: some well-known faces to a grandfather, a cooper to a winemaker – and everything in between!
Twelve artists joined our celebration and have given us a visual party with drawings, paintings in oil, watercolour and acrylic, photography, print and even a mosaic.
Thanks to Carol Hill, Janice Lane, Dagny Strand, Karen Waller, Debby Haskard-Strauss, Ian Corbett, Judy Morris, Ron Penrose, Daniel Sutherland, Toni Corso, Lou Basher and Ros McDougall – pop in to meet some of the artists and have a chat about their work.
