The Art Hunter’s must see Fringe Visual Arts exhibitions

The Fringe is an awesome event in South Australia- here are my “must see” exhibitions (the ones I circled in my Fringe guide) Please let me know of you see any that I should visit. I will also be posting reviews on the Fringe Website as I get around to each of them.

The Helpmann Academy Graduate Exhibition

This is an exhibition of some of the best work from our tertiary institutions. It is a great place to see graduate work from the Adelaide Central School of Art, UniSA’s School of Art, Architecture and Design and TAFE SA Adelaide College of the Arts. Click here for details

The Red Book- Ross Morgan

I absolutely love this artist. His works never cease to surprise. Often painted with the utmost care they take the viewer on a journey to the surreal. His upcoming book launch promises to be one not to miss. Click here for details


This looks like a great idea for an exhibition, two artists create one work. Great range of artists participating. Located at the Handorf academy. Click here for details


Mainly because it looks interesting and mainly because it is located at my favourite pub the Wheatsheaf Hotel, this exhibition looks interesting as it is a collection of photographic works from Emily Trott, Rachel Harris, Angela De Palma & Michelle Rodgers. They all respond to Phrases, idioms and everyday sayings with murky meanings. Click here for details

An exhibition of resin toys that have been sneakily on display at the new city library. This is going to be cool, and I want one. Click here for details. 

Nostalgic Scribbles

Water colour paintings from a personal viewpoint from around the world. As a lover of watercolour I really want to see these works by Lucy Brewin. Click here for details 

Art and Nature: A Romantic Redux

Two of Adelaide’s top artists-one usually creates stunning black and white ethereal landscape photography; the other some of the most colourful work I have ever seen. A match made in heaven? Worth looking at this exhibition commenting on our 21st century fascination with technology is separating us from the natural world. Details here
