Heartland: Stories from the Coast

Bridgette Minuzzo, ‘Stack’ Moana Beach (detail), 2017, mixed media: acrylic paint, 'Moana' canvas beach tent, braid, 32 x 26 cm (Courtesy of artist)

Heartland presents artworks, experiences and mementos of two South Australian artists. Bridgette Minuzzo and the late Steve Wickes (1877-1954), although separated in time, have a shared connection to the Moana-Christies Beach coastline. This exhibition celebrates the generational influence of this region on both their lives and art practices.

Artist talk at launch with Bridgette and Steve Wickes granddaughter Merry Wickes.

Join Bridgette for a Telescope Painting workshop on 11 May. Drawing inspiration from the artworks and photographs from the exhibition, Bridgette will assist you to create a painting as if you are looking through a telescope.
