Rita Hall exhibition at the Murray Bridge Regional Art Gallery

Don’t miss the Rita Hall exhibition at the Murray Bridge Regional Art Gallery.

In February of 2015 a fire in Rita’s studio destroyed 25 new paintings destined for an exhibition at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery. With plans for a new studio underway, friends and strangers delivering art materials, a huge clean up and an offer for another exhibition, Rita felt she could only begin again.

While having no desire to repaint what was lost, Rita still felt compelled to examine the ordinary domestic interior of her home. New Paintings looks on another set of objects, arranged in a ritualistic manner, offering careful, disciplined observations of the everyday through the medium of collage and oil on canvas.

The Murray Bridge Regional Gallery is proudly recognised as one of the leading galleries in regional South Australia.

Located 45 minutes from Adelaide, the Gallery offers three exhibition spaces and a contemporary retail outlet featuring works from South Australia's leading artists and designers.

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm and Sundays 11am to 4pm. It is closed Mondays and public holidays.

SA Time Attack

The Mitsubishi GSR Evo Club is proud to present SA Time Attack on Sunday 29 April 2018 at the new The Bend Motorsport Park in Tailem Bend. An exciting evolution of the event and we will be using the 4.95km International Circuit, the very same that the Supercars will be using later on in the year in August! With racing only commencing in April at The Bend, SA Time Attack will be one of the very first events held at The Bend!

The 2018 SA Time attack regulations are aligned with interstate and World Time Attack Challenge regulations. This, combined with the location at The Bend Motorsport Parks, provides a strong incentive for interstate competitors to participate.

This track has been designed to FIA Category 2 levels so the whole track and venue will be next level! Focusing on the off-track experience as well, there will be something for everyone. There will be a Show & Shine run by the Horsepower Crew, a Vendor Lane, Food Trucks plus a host of other activities.

On behalf of MGEC, it is our pleasure to invite you to be part of the SA Time Attack: Tailem Bend Edition.
