Conversation with Myself - Monte Clements
Photography on canvas
'Over the last year i have been blown away, again and again at how willing my friends are to embrace my quirky photos. 'Why do you do these photos?' i know the answer without thinking about it. "Because i stopped feeling interesting sometime ago" - it's tough being isolated in a mining town. If you don't drink, play sports or have a relationship - what do you do to keep your mind alive. How do you remind yourself you have a personality when everyone you know constantly sees you in a hard hat, safety glasses, dust mask, bright orange overalls and gum boots - Just one in a crowd.
After a few months of posting photos of myself on Facebook and receiving offers of help and encouragement, i realised other people needed this escape to. So i opened my door and got others involved, which led to an Instagram account with over 160 photos, which i'm incredible proud of considering it's a hobby.

My Paintings Speak for Me - Kunyi June Anne McInerney
Acrylic on canvas
In this exhibition, South Australian artist Kunyi June Anne McInerney draws upon her experiences as a member of the Stolen Generation in the Oodnadatta Mission Home during the 1950's. Kunyi's vibrant use of colour, facial expression and depiction of landscape document the memories of her childhood to reflect on her own dispossession, revealing an often-invisible part of Australian history.
