The Bigger Picture is a South Australian perspective on the Overwintering Project, an Australia wide series of exhibitions and regional activities that celebrate the miraculous journeys of migratory shorebirds. Bittondi Printmakers’ Association Inc widens the focus by considering the changing environments that these birds encounter due to climate change, industrial development and agricultural practice, with particular reference to the South Australian coast and its specific local issues.
Bittondi Members are pleased to be introducing our new Kent Town studio with two open days and an exhibition of members’ work in the adjacent Mezz 55 Gallery space.
Entrance is at the rear in Little Rundle Street
Limited parking, however there is parking in Rundle Street and adjacent areas.
Hours: 1-5pm Saturday 17 April 2021 & 10am-4pm Sunday 18 April 2021.
26 Bittondi members contributed prints to a special anniversary exhibition at the Noarlunga Arts Centre that opened on the 2ndof August this year. Our opening speaker was Kate Toop who collaborated with us in many exhibitions and projects during her time as a senior art teacher at Aberfoyle Park High School. The exhibition was organized by Mary Pulford with the assistance of Tim Rollason from the Noarlunga Arts Centre. It was our largest exhibition to date and we received many comments on the high standards achieved.
Bittondi has a guillotine! The hard working committee, lead by Geoff, have now installed this beauty in the workroom.
We wish to acknowledge that this sheet metal cutting guillotine was purchased with the assistance of a grant from the Onkaparinga Council. It will enable us to expand the range of sizes of printing plates used in the workshop and therefore extend the range of services we can provide to artists and community members who utilise these facilities.
Hilary Lorenz’ fabulous Moth Migration project went live today. Several Bittondi members got involved and are looking forward to seeing their work in the website – it is installed at 516 Arts in the US and is planned to tour internationally!
