Once a month I volunteer to sit, show and sell local art.
Not just mine, but anyone’s in the Kangaroo Island Gallery. All exhibitors are required to do volunteer work instead of paying an exhibition-fee. It’s actually a fun job: Sit & sell in the gallery at least one full day or two half-days per month. Located at 1 Murray Street, Kingscote, Kangaroo Island, behind the Kingscote Council Building, it’s actually an ambient place to be all day.
So I go the extra mile during my shift:
I use the time to create short videos showing off the curator’s change-of-location of all the amazing artwork. In each of the following videos you will notice that rarely is any artwork in the same place each month.
Video #1: Kangaroo Island Art Gallery: Open All Day, Every Day
Video #2: Three Minutes in the Kangaroo Island (Art) Gallery ‘Top Room’
Someone once said “Build it and they will come”. The KI Gallery has built a new room. It’s time for you to come, view, peruse and purchase the artwork.
Video #3: 30 Years Retrospective of Kangaroo Island Artwork
Artwork on display at the Kangaroo Island Gallery in the new ‘Top Room’ at the back of the shop. Take some time out of your day to appreciate them.
I look forward to seeing you there one time!
