“Sea Pixels” and “Shared Histories” SA Maritime Heritage Photographic Exhibitions

Foyer F

Official Launch: Wednesday, 21 January 2018, 6pm to 7.30pm, Foyer F

The exhibition showcases winning entries from two photo competitions designed to build a visual library of South Australia’s maritime heritage sites. Works set for display feature stories and historical images of our state’s wrecked sea vessels, as well as marine life around the historic shipwrecks, jetties and lighthouses.

The opening was great and the cheese and fruit platters provided were excellent, the staff for setup and pack down were very helpful and the exposure was unsurpassed. I sold 6 paintings, received a commission and 2 gallery exhibition space offers, to date it has been the most successful exhibition I have been involved in.

I was thrilled with the exhibition and especially to find out that the Adelaide Convention Centre doesn’t charge any commission, exhibition fee or marketing fee! This is a wonderful service to the local art community.
