 Art in the Sticks 2018 presents

‘Art in the Sticks’ is a unique collaborative event set in the stunning surrounds of ancient gum trees, lush paddocks and historic buildings on ‘Cluain’ - a working organic beef property

Now in its eighth year, Lucindale’s ‘Art in the Sticks’ has variously been described as a ‘Woodstock for artists’, and originally started when property owner and artist Hamish opened his gates and welcomed visitors into his art studio in 2011.

Titled ‘Raw’, this year’s headline exhibition will showcase eclectic works from a range of artists including paintings, sculpture, photography, jewellery, furniture, textiles and wearable art, which will be housed throughout unique exhibition spaces including rustic shearer’s quarters, shearing platforms, paddocks and next to a dam.

Complementing the range of art on offer will be ‘hands on’ workshops, live music, poetry performances, artist-led rambles through the exhibition spaces, food offerings, local wines and boutique beers.

Visitors are encouraged to book early for Sunday’s ‘Farmers Fare Lunch’ - this year catered for by McLaren Vale’s Billy Dohnt from ‘BillyDohntDoes’. It is set to feature a rustic paddock to plate feast of local produce held within the ambience of the magnificent shearing shed.

Co-creators Hamish, and Christa Mlakar - along with the exhibiting artists - have this year increased the focus on live music, with a line-up including Kelly Menhennett, Archer and Matisse, and Jack Lane, along with ‘Thomo and Julianne’ and jazz group ‘Two’s Company’on Sunday.

‘Art in the Sticks’ will be held on Saturday 29 September and Sunday 30 September with gates open from 11 am to 6pm. Entry $10.00 per adult and children under 15 free. No EFTPOS available. Camping with shared facilities available.
