This August we welcome artist Beryl Hunter to our cellar door as part of SALA 2020. Her exhibition ‘The Wondrous Strange of the Local’ celebrates the natural landscapes around her Barossa home and her ‘backyard’ beyond.
As Beryl explains “This collection of mixed media works on paper has been inspired by my own Barossa Valley garden during ‘stay at home’ COVID times and by time spent in Deep Creek Conservation Park. We have all spent much more time close to home this year in our own backyard of South Australia. The wonder of exploring my own ‘local’ never ceases to inspire me with things I haven’t noticed before”.
“I am an artist who likes to mix my media. I especially enjoy creating strong line work; drawing with ink, charcoal and pencil and adding paint and collage. The landscape and the natural environment are my greatest inspirations and I am always trying to capture and convey something of their energy.”
We are honoured to have Beryl display her beautiful artworks in our cellar door. They look completely at home in our space and we are very tempted to have them stay in our interior permanently! Be inspired by the rugged beauty of our vast South Australian backyard through Beryl’s work and take this inspiration home by adding a piece to your art collection.
Enjoy more than wine when you visit us in the Barossa this August.
