Gang of Four Art Exhibition Celebrated at Mannum | The Murray Valley Standard

An artistic celebration of four women who love astrophotography has been celebrated in the Murraylands

The official opening took place on Friday February 18 at the Mannum Dock Discovery Centre, Arnold Gallery.

The ‘gang of four‘ is a photographic faction of the artistic world of creation.

Four local women, Christine Denman, Louise Bond, Kirsty Ann Cameron and Patricia Kahl, who share a passion for photography and are known to have fun together when shooting, especially astrophotography.

The “Gang of Four” is a borderless exhibition of myriad settings of artistic expression captured by every photographer in the local district.

Artist Christine Denman said there was only one boundary in their artistic visions.

“The only limitation we have is when our cameras create a border, boundaries and edges that define the images we create,” Ms. Denman said.

“Beyond that, we are free to pursue any path in photography, e.g. macro, landscape, portrait, astrophotography, black and white; we are not bound by any limitations for we move freely and explore.

“We use photography as a language that uses visual elements instead of words of expression for artistic purposes.

“Photography, with its unique characteristics, sets it apart from its closest relative, painting. Photography is an art form that we all appreciate and enjoy exploring our natural world of what lies within.”

Mid Murray Council Mayor Dave Burgess officially opened the exhibition and the evening was followed by a speech by Hammond MP Adrian Pederick.

The exhibition will run from February 1 to Saturday April 30, 2022.

Admission is free and the artwork can be viewed at 6 Randell Street, Mannum.

Please phone 8569 1303 for more information. Everyone is welcome.
