The Grand Opening of the redeveloped Tatiara Civic Centre in Bordertown South Australia by former Australian Prime Minister the Honourable RJL (Bob) Hawke, signifies an important step in the support of regional arts. The Civic Centre opening will be marked by an exhibition at the Walkway Gallery with local artists, such as Bordertown painter, Glenda Rowett, whose paintings celebrate the landscape and natural beauty of the area.
By encouraging regional artists, galleries such as the Walkway Gallery, play an important part in providing people with access to cultural facilities outside of large cities. The Official Opening Ceremony of the Tatiara Civic Centre by Former Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke will take place on Sunday, 30th October 2011. Hawke has a particular connection to Bordertown as it is his place of birth.
The South East of South Australia is a regional area that is primarily farmland, with a number of small towns providing services to the local communities. Bordertown South Australia is located near the border between SA and Victoria, as the name suggests. Here in this small regional community, the local gallery will be a big boost for local people with a keen interest in art and culture. Local artist and Australian landscape painter, Glenda Rowett, is one of the artists whose work will feature in the gallery. Rowett has made the landscape and farming of the South East a primary focus in her works of art, making an ideal choice for being part of the opening displays.
Rowett’s paintings include works of art that are inspired by the river gums, the rural landscape and the farming of the land. Collections that the artist has made in the past include subjects such the Poocha wetlands, draught horses, landscapes, flora and fauna of the local area. Having been raised on a farm in the area, this opportunity provides the local artist with a chance to exhibit her work before a local audience, as well as those visiting for the Civic Centre opening.
The exhibition at the Walkway Art Gallery in Bordertown South Australia marks an opportunity for the town and community to access a unique cultural facility. Regional art and culture forms an important part of the community, providing people who live in remote areas with access to artworks. The gallery opening also provides painters and artists from the Bordertown area with a place to exhibit their work within their community. The ’Place’ exhibition at the Walkway Gallery will run from Friday 28th October, 2011.
