Faces behind the Feasts: for Tasting Australia

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.

Ian Corbett’s ‘Muratti Boy’

Tasting Australia sets a theme and we follow suit – our exhibition becomes part of the ‘associated events’ program for the festival.

Visual Feast by mosaic artist, Carol Hill

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’.

Daniel Sutherland portrayed his grandfather, an orange grower from the Riverland


Judy Morris’ ‘Jason’ from The Gourmet on Main

So, the result is a great mix: some well-known faces to a grandfather, a cooper to a winemaker – and everything in between!

‘Scott’ by Ron Penrose

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.

Louise Basher’s ‘Poh’


And, Debby Haskard-Strauss’ Poh in ‘Made from Scratch’
