For the love of art

For the Love of Art! is the title of the upcoming Port Lincoln Art Group exhibition.

Louise Mrdjen will be opening the exhibition and everyone is welcome.

“Love is the spirit that motivates the artist’s journey.” – Eric Manisell.

This describes what inspires the 20 or so artists who will be presenting around 50 works for the group’s annual exhibition.

The range of subjects reflect the artists varying interests.

Many have been inspired by nature resulting in paintings of seascapes, landscapes, flora and fauna.

For others portraiture has been a main interest.

The artists also work in a variety of mediums such as oils, acrylic, watercolour, pastels and graphite.

The Port Lincoln Art group started in 1971 and meets on a Wednesday from 10am till 3pm at Arteyrea, on the corner of Mortlock Terrace and Blackman Street.

Drop in and see the artists at work or get information about joining the group.

All works are for sale.

Go along and enjoy what the Port Lincoln Art Group has on offer and consider purchasing some local original art.
