Keeping Creative on Your Summer Break

Christmas has come and gone, all the presents have been unwrapped and you’re toying with the idea of putting your tree into storage again (don’t fool yourself, it’s not going to happen until January). So what is there to do in between now and New Years? Luckily, Well Made’s creative spaces are still celebrating the holidays late into December. Get updated on any special opening hours and events they may have to tide you over for the rest of the silly season.

Hahndorf Academy is still open seven days a week from 9am until 5pm for all your art-related needs. If you’re still feeling festive, The Artist’s Voice Xmas Exhibition is open until 7 January. A group exhibition by artists based in the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu, the work on display includes sculpture, ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, glass and new media.

Hill Smith Gallery is taking a short Christmas break, but don’t worry. Their doors will open again on 17 January. Their opening hours are 10am to 5pm Wednesday to Friday and 2pm to 5pm on Saturdays. Catch their group exhibition featuring selected stockroom works from HSG represented artists from 17 to 27 January 2018.

The Arts Centre Port Noarlunga is closed for the holidays, opening again on Tuesday 2 January. Their opening hours will recommence as usual from 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday and 12pm to 4pm Saturdays.

We are excited to announce that Brick+Mortar is open between Christmas and New Years for the first time! Pay this creative space a visit from Wednesday 27 to Sunday 31 December anytime from 9am to 3pm.

JamFactory is closed on New Year’s Day. They are open as usual every other day though. Catch them Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm. On Sundays, your window of opportunity is from 12pm to 4pm and their Generate exhibition is open in Gallery One until 11 February, so you still have plenty of time to see it. Don’t miss this exquisite showcase of second year associate work in ceramics, glass, metal and furniture design.
