For the second year in a row, Meg Mader will be demonstrating her art as one of the artists in residence at the Clare Rotary Art Exhibition.
The artist in residence will be available to the public to discuss their personal process and style, so make some time to come along and meet with Meg.
The annual art exhibition is held in conjunction with the Clare Valley Gourmet Event (see Clare Valley Regional Tourism site for details). Artists Australia-wide have entered this competition. The value of prizes exceeds $15,000 over nine categories.
See the Rotary Club of Clare for more information about the exhibition.
The reinvigorated and rebranded Clare Valley Wine Food and Tourism Centre reopened at the southern entrance to Clare on the 24th of April 2015 and with it the VAPAA exhibition featuring local artists from the mid North of South Australia.
Meg Mader from The Journey Studio was invited to exhibit and presented four painting at the opening.
Locals turned out in force to ensure the success of the opening that has been brought together by the consortium consisting of the Clare Valley Winegrape Growers Association, Clare Valley Winemakers Inc, Clare Valley Cuisine, Clare Valley Business and Tourism Association and Visual and Performing Arts Association.
Visitors and locals alike are encouraged to come down and take a look at what is on offer including information about places to go and things to do in the Clare Valley, local gourmet produce, wines and wineries and of course the visual and performing art on offer.
Just to top off a great event, all of Meg’s paintings were sold at the opening!
Art from the Heart is a group of four local artists – Graciela Dorey, Anneliese Krieg, Meg Mader and Louise White.
Each artist has their own unique style and techniques but their love of colour brings the different artworks together as can be seen at the current exhibition at Annie’s Lane.
The opening was a huge success and a lot of fun with Annie’s Lane wine, food and live music from Danny Hooper and Nic Krieg. As artworks sell they have been replaced with new works so make sure you drop in for a look. Annie’s Lane cellar door and gallery space are open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4.30pm, and Saturday, Sunday and public holidays from 10am to 4pm, at Quelltaler Road Watervale.
