SALA:
Stobie Art Project 2020

01/08/2019 - 31/08/2019

Opening:

An exhibition just isn’t the same without an opening. And, just because this isn’t your regular exhibition, doesn’t mean it can’t have an opening.

So, we are planning to stage this on the afternoon of Saturday 1 August. I am not sure just what this will involve, but it will be outside (so rug up!) and we will be able to include residents of the area, plus artists. More details to follow!

About the gallery:

Mrs Harris’ Shop has been a landmark in Jervois Street, Torrensville for eighty years. It has been operated by three successive generations of women who married into the Harris family.

In 1932, Dorothy Harris built and opened the little general store after having worked a similar shop across the street. She ran the shop until her husband died in 1958. As well as undertaking much of the construction work on the shop, he was a talented painter. Dorothy was succeeded by her daughter-in-law, Rae, who closed the store in 1970 when, like hundreds of tiny suburban shops, it fell victim to the supermarket explosion.

Now, Rae’s daughter-in-law, Jo has re-opened the shop, this time as a gallery showcasing art and craft.

Some of the original sign writing that survived has been restored and the look continued in the new branding for the gallery. Artefacts from the original shop are often displayed in the rejuvenated space.

Even after having been closed for several decades, the little shop in Jervois Street is still fondly remembered by many locals as ‘Mrs Harris’ Shop’, so it seemed appropriate to continue to use this name in its new incarnation.

There is a sense of things having come ‘full circle’ with the rebirth of the little store and the role that art is once again playing in the environment.

Jo is particularly keen to support emerging and regional artists who might otherwise find it difficult to exhibit in the city.

The Hidden Geometrey of Flowers - Argos

A solo art exhibition by artist Jessica Curtis
29 June - 1 August

The Hidden Geometry of Flowers & Nature Fractal Wall Hanging Series

Selected works from the Cities of Light art installation (Adl Fringe 2020) & new Heavenly Crystals pieces will also be available for viewing and purchase.

More about the exhibition:
Inspired by the Secret Life of Plant and The Hidden Geometry of Flowers

As the flower petals unfold they reveal their innate geometric perfection connected to the sacred geometry that underlies the of all creation. The hidden beauty of the flower is essential to humanity; we “resonate with the hidden patterns” and have embedded this geometry in our sacred art, architecture & culture.

This same unfolding can be found in the root, to the tree/plant, to the branch and into the veins of the leaf. The ‘whole’ is hidden in the ‘part’. Each part of a tree or plant is self-referential, a fractal of itself. The micro contains the macro and the marco contains the micro.

There is a preexistent “ratio”, the Fibonacci, to which all life and ourselves grow. As we meditate on a flower we can become more consciousness of the interrelationships and the grand design behind all of creation. Geometry is the art of the ‘ever-true’, Socrates.

Through this revelation we have the philosophy and experience to create a more holistic understanding of life. “Numbers are the reverberation and pulsations on the One,” K.B.C

“We are each the microcosm of the macro. The patterning hidden in a flower also enables all life to achieve an active state of balance that we call harmony, which is a prerequisite if the health of each of Earth’s vital life support systems”. The Prince of Wales – The Secret Life of Plants
