Islands are by nature isolating, and that isolation coupled with majestic natural surroundings can be inspiration galore to the creative soul.

Thus the symmetry of Kangaroo Island: 4500 square kilometres, half of it natural ecosystems and, 4500 residents, half seemingly artists in some form.

Ten of the island’s visual artists are bringing ‘mainlanders’ a glimpse of the isolation and inspiration of island life in Island to Inland: contemporary art from Kangaroo Island, which will open at Flinders University City Gallery during SALA Festival 2017 and then be toured by Country Arts SA.

The artists are creating new works on the theme of ‘isolation and inspiration’ for the exhibition.

Artists: Ria Byass, Quentin Chester, Audrey Harnett, Scott Hartshorne, Indiana James, Janine Mackintosh, Deborah Sleeman, Caroline Taylor, Maggie Welz, Kenita Williamson

Curated by Eleanor Scicchitano, Visual Arts Coordinator, Country Arts South Australia and Celia Dottore, Exhibitions Manager, Flinders University Art Museum and City Gallery University.
