Art Celebrates Poetry

Chris and Julie

Julie Kent and Chris Brown enjoy the opening of the ‘John Shaw’ – with the winning entry ‘The Whistling Jack’ in the background.

The recent 2016 John Shaw Neilson Acquisitive Art Prize saw group members challenging themselves with mediums and interpretations of their selected poem/s written by the celebrated South Australian poet.  Some beautiful works were produced and entered this year, and several members risked encounters with kangaroos and emus to attend the opening – always an enjoyable affair.
