Julie Fletcher Workshop

As part of Curdnatta's 50th Birthday celebrations we were fortunate to have Julie Fletcher hold a workshop in Port Augusta for local photographers. 

Many thanks to Country Arts SA for sponsoring the workshop.

Photographers came from Port Lincoln, Whyalla. Port Pirie and Port Augusta.

Julie is a well known and idolised photographer who is based at Maree in South Australia. Her landscapes featuring the Australian outback inspire many to get out there and have a go.

The weather was freezing but after an informative morning session photographers hit the ground running. Here are some pics taken on the day and some after the event using our newfound knowledge.

Thanks To Andrew, Jeff and Kimberly, Cheryl and Georgie for sharing their pics.

After 50 Years Curdnatta Art Group is "making tracks"!
Our lease at Port Augusta's original railway station has come to an end. 
The current owner of the building, the state government, is reverting the land to crown land and the federal government department overseeing the property does not require tenants as they prepare pockets of land for eventual sale.

We were hoping we could see out our 50th birthday celebrations in the original building but unfortunately this is not possible.
On the bright side we have secured new  premises at the Port Augusta Railway Station (the newer one)............ TOOT TOOT!!!   ALL ABOARD!!!!

The next couple of months will be a bit of a roller coaster ride as we work through the moving process but we hope all of our supporters will hang in there until we are settled in the new place.

There will be quite a few items for sale at the gallery in the next month or so as we decide which pieces to take with us so watch our Facebook page for bargains.

All of the workshops and exhibitions we have organised will still go ahead but in different locations so keep an eye on our Facebook page. 

Our fabulous artworks will be available at the Gallery until the end of July and then again from September in the new gallery.
