This is our 2nd year as the unofficial fringe and perfect adjunct to
SNAP at the Aldeburgh Festival!
Why Snoop? We are situated in the old USAF intelligence block at
Bentwaters airbase…you will have a chance to investigate our
interrogation suite, listen to a string quartet by Benjamin Britten,
take part in a Drawing
Exchange, eat something nice, bury something(?)
Plenty of Art of course… sculpture, painting, installation & sound pieces

TAR at The Black Diamond Gallery, Port Adelaide (curated by Tony Kearney) has been nominated for the BANKSA AWARD – BEST VISUAL ART & DESIGN at this year’s Adelaide Fringe.

TAR: Come over to the dark side…

Exhibition @ Black Diamond Gallery, Port Adelaide, South Australia

22 February – 10th March 2013

A group of contemporary artists bring you TAR – be it tar of shipyard, rope and sails, of night, of roads and pitch, sealing or preserving, medicinal or harmful. This exhibition celebrates the dark, resinous, aromatic, binding, bitumous and symbolic nature of tar. Curated by Tony Kearney.

TAR is the third in a series of contemporary mixed media exhibitions curated by Tony Kearney, the previous two being RUST and SALT. Tony brings together established and emerging artists from disparate disciplines to celebrate elemental themes. Glass, ceramics, contemporary jewellery, photography, painting, drawing, installation, sculpture; all these work together to explore and respond to the theme of TAR.

Brenda L. Croft, Bruce Nuske, Christine Cholewa, Danica Gacesa McLean, Deb Jones, Emily Taylor, Emma Johnson, Grant Hancock, Hailey Lane, Kate Cullity, Kirsten Coelho, Jaqueline Barmentloo, Nici Cumpston, Peter Johnson, Sandra Elms, Tom Moore, Tony Kearney, Trevor Wren.
