Art Expression @ 123 Fisher opens at Fullarton

Living Choice Fullarton has attracted some very talented residents, especially in the fields of art and music, and so it’s no surprise that the village has earned a reputation for being a major “cultural hub”.

The village has an active Resident Ambassador team and last year, a sub-group of this team, led by resident Helen Hammond (also an accomplished artist), arranged for the village to be a SALA venue for the month of August.

Called “Art Expression @ 123 Fisher“, the 2016 exhibition attracted 22 artists and many visitors. It was so successful that Living Choice Fullarton was again registered as a SALA venue this year, attracting more than 50 artists and 179 paintings, plus textiles and jewellery.

The exhibition was officially opened by Deputy Mayor, Clr Don Palmer on 1st August and was attended by more than 220 artists, residents and guests. “You should be very proud – this is one of 50 SALA venues in Unley and this year’s exhibition certainly tops last year.”

Clr Palmer described the village as a “fantastic place”. “It’s definitely become an important part of our community and I often come here for coffee.”

Living Choice director, Ian Tregoning, paid tribute to the resident helpers for their amazing organisation and initiative. “Being able to host exhibitions such as this is exactly what we envisaged when we built Fullarton.”

Three paintings, donated by Lindsay Kilminster, Dianne Vanstone and Helen Hammond, were auctioned by Bronte Manuel of leading real estate agency Toop & Toop. The Official Opening was also sponsored by Toop & Toop and the Master of Ceremonies was popular Living Choice Ambassador, Keith Conlon OAM.

The exhibition is open daily until 27th August from 10am to 4pm and until 6pm on Wednesdays. A series of music concerts has also been arranged throughout the month. Click here for more details.
