Sculptures on show at Kapunda – Australia News


SCULPTURES from a European-schooled artist will be on display this month at the Kapunda Community Gallery.

After studying art in London, English-born artist Simone Lyon moved to Scotland, where she spent more than 20 years teaching art and making sculptural ceramics.

In 2006, Ms Lyon moved to Italy, where she began to focus more on two-dimensional works, with her sculptural work becoming more abstract.

She moved to South Australia permanently in 2015 and, this month, will link up with South Australian artist Barbara Palmer for an exhibition to showcase a variety of her sculpture and watercolour pieces.

Mrs Palmer has also worked as an art teacher, teaching visual art and design for many years, while also working as a practising artist.

Her work is inspired by her love of land, sea and the footprints of human activity found where these mediums meet.

Despite coming from two vastly different backgrounds, the works are complementary and will make for a visually stunning exhibition.

The exhibition will open on September 10 and run until October 15.

The Kapunda Community Gallery is located on the corner of Main and Brown streets, Kapunda, and is open from 10am-4pm on weekdays and 10am-3.30pm on weekends and public holidays.
