Drifting Sands features the work of seven women artists from across regional and remote South Australia who are at the heart of their communities. Through painting and other mediums, they celebrate the strength within women – referencing the influences of women in the past who have shaped their lives while also looking to nurture and guide tomorrow’s leaders. This exhibition, curated by Marika Davies, likens the strength of women to the energy of wind as it drives sand across Country – shaping dunes, sculpting new forms, steadily altering the future.
This exhibition is supported by the Art Gallery of South Australia and Port Pirie Regional Council.
Marika Davies is supported by Regional Arts through Country Arts SA.
