EXHIBITION: Retrospective Prints Exhibition

The 100 x 100 print folio was commissioned in 1988 to celebrate Australia's Bicentenary. 100 artists were commissioned to make plates which were subsequently printed in editions of 100 by some of Australia's finest master printmakers. A beautiful overview of print practices and concerns in Australia during the late 1980's. Curated by Vicki Reynolds and Lorelei Medcalf of AC Arts.

The 50 Prints in 50 Hours exhibition is the result of a 50 Hour Print Marathon held concurrently in Adelaide, Auckland, Pt Elliot and Hong Kong in March of this year. The Print Marathon was held in celebration of the Print Council of Australia's 50th Anniversary in 2016. Participants were encouraged to print over each other's work to make exciting new collaborative prints around the theme of 'compass'. 25 selected prints from the Ausckland event are exhibited alongside the South Australian event.
Curated by Simone Tippett of Union St Printmakers.

EXHIBITION: Building Blocks (GalleryTwo)

Buildings as a source of inspiration may seem unusual for a jeweller, but many jewellers reflect upon architectural modes of construction, materials, forms and even scale within their works. Featuring work from Claire Brooks, Christian Hall, Courtney Jackson, Jessamy Pollock and Andrew Welch.


An exhibition exploring the concept of the ‘seat’ by South Australian designers and makers. This showcase includes the work of Jon Goulder, Rhys Cooper, Takeshi Iue, Genesin Studio, Matt Taylor, Daniel Emma and Studio Gram. 


Strung out? Relax and join jeweller Alice Potter for a FREE jewellery making workshop! Get hands on and construct your own architecturally inspired jewellery, in conjunction with the current GalleryTwo exhibition Building Blocks and as part of UniSA's 25th Birthday celebrations.

A thematically linked multi-media exhibition, these artworks reflect on different concepts and themes surrounding the title ‘Shoulder to Shoulder’, either in practice or in idea.

Art is an integral part of Catherine House’s work, and aims to provide women experiencing homelessness with creative opportunities to tap into their unknown artistic gifts and talents. Chart 2016  is Catherine House's most ambitious exhibition to date, and is also the first involving artist and instructor Ava Leitner.

EXHIBITION: Designed to Make a Difference: Visualising Mental Health

Mental ill health is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Psychologists along with other mental health professionals play a significant role in the prevention and treatment of mental ill health. One of the ongoing challenges psychologists face in doing this is communicating important mental health concepts to the wider community. It was this challenge that led Dr Gareth Furber to make contact with matchstudio to discuss how psychologists could collaborate with emerging designers to create engaging and informative mental health education materials for the general public. 

Facilitated by matchstudio, this exhibition presents the culmination of a 12 week co-design project between UniSA’s third year Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) students and psychologists from the Psychology and Health Forum
