Seven ex TART’S (Textile & Arts Collective in Gay’s Arcade, Adelaide) have formed a new exhibition group called “Patina”. This predominately hills based group boasts four ex directors and evolved after a social get together with the artists lamenting the lack of opportunities to produce non commercial experimental artworks. The group (Lynn Elzinga-Henry, Mollie Littlejohn, Mara Martin, Ines Parker, Charmian Quintrell, Nancy Sarre & Suzie Windram) were keen to steer clear of the traditional gallery set up in an effort to maintain a more relaxed approach to art that is in keeping with their current lives. The name ‘Patina“ was one that suggested the beautiful finish that comes with age – (not necessarily just for the art works with some of the artists well into their 3 rd or 4th decade of art practise). The result is “Up The Garden Path,“ an exhibition which will feature mainly outdoor installations but also paintings, sculptures and smaller items in the studio. The majority of pieces have been made for or from the garden.
The venue is the 2.5 acre garden and studio of Lynn Elzinga–Henry at Crafers.
The exhibition will begin Nov 10 & 11 as part of the Open Garden Scheme and then the garden and studio will be open to the public Wednesday to Sunday from 1pm –5pm until Dec 9. “Patina” is planning wonderful afternoon teas, special community pieces to be worked on, as well as a rotation of artists beavering away in the studio. Everyone is of course most welcome to drop in over the month for a look and a chance to enjoy this unique take on art, gardens and shared lives. The garden is listed in the Open garden Scheme as the Elzinga Garden
