We are nearly half way through the year's program of events and our workshops have been very well received. This month we showcased the work of artist Natalie Castree who is also the artist behind the wonderful exhibition of student work "Carving Our Own Way" in the form of lino prints.

The students from Port Augusta West Primary School focused on design this year and the theme of circles. Congratulations to everyone who participated and especially Nat and Sharron for the work they put into making this happen.

"EMBROIDERY" with  Raelene Clark proved to be a very successful workshop and it seems there is an interest in traditional crafts.

WRITERS͛ THEME - Time. Perspective. Poetry or prose


This month we had another great opportunity to develop skills with Jan Pana.
The "CREATING GREAT DESIGN " workshop saw people developing their own designs for a range of art forms including felting, embroidery, beading and printed fabric.

March and April at THE PLATFORM

A great range of exhibitions and workshops so far in 2017.

Jenny's exhibition in March was very successful with over 200 people through the gallery during that month.

Tammy held a workshop where participants investigated the different properties of Polymer Clay and the Photography group welcomed beginning photographers to their meeting.

In April we featured the work of Jan Pana and Jan also held a drawing workshop. 

The photography group happened to be at the gallery and enjoyed taking some snaps of the artists at work.

Off to a great start in 2017

Well we are off and running as we head into 2017.

With a City Council grant we have ordered new brochures which will highlight all the activities we have planned for the year.

First exhibition is "Omnium Gatherum" - a collection of all things by Ineke van den Hout.  Ineke will also hold a workshop on 12n February.

The Yearly Program is looking good and we advise people to register  early to secure a place in workshops.
