Audacious – Cheryl Bridgart

Solo Exhibition Cheryl Bridgart is a multi-faceted artist who is best known for her unique free-hand embroidery technique which she describes as drawing with her sewing machine.

Possessing a dexterous fluidity with the sewing needle as another artist would use a pencil; she creates tactile and expressive images containing a personal and universal narrative. Cheryl studied visual art and taught herself embroidery developing a unique and personal style which continues to evolve. Setting herself a challenge, no preparatory work is done on the canvas and the art work begins when the needle and thread touches the canvas.

SALA 2020 - Colour Our World

This year’s SALA theme for the Coorong Gallery is “Colour Our World “. Our world has changed in the last few months with COVID 19, with restrictions on movement, and social and physical distancing. We have recognised that art has played a big part of everyone’s lives during COVID 19, whether it’s been watching television, listening to music, reading a book, or interacting with our loved ones by linking up via computers.

Art can bring colour and life to our existence at such a bleak time, playing a significant role in social and community well-being.

The Coorong Gallery encouraged local artists of any level and working in any medium to be a part of this year’s SALA Festival and participate in colouring our world, making a bright and happy environment.
