How do we Love Thee? Let us count the ways… KI Fungi
Fine Art Kangaroo Island presents exciting new works by exceptionally talented celebrated and emerging artists. Thoughtful selections combine fascinating art, pristine natural environment and creative community. Remarkable for large areas of remnant vegetation the island hosts a diversity of unique ecosystems. Interconnected by an extraordinary sense of place 22 artists reveal the obscure delights of fungi — essential for life — often furtive and mostly inconspicuous.
A wide variety of media are exhibited, ranging from jewelry and sculpture, to prints, painting and photographs.
State Herbarium Hon. Research Associate and fungi expert Pam Catcheside was heavily involved in the preparation of the exhibition and advising artists and the gallery about mushrooms and toadstools of Kangaroo Island. She will also give a talk at the National Wine Centre on 11 August 2015 at 11 am.
The exhibition is open every day in August, 10am–5pm.
