Arts South Australia and City of Prospect have recently celebrated the installation of Threads in Motion by artist Karl Meyer, in association with Exhibition Studios.

City of Prospect was selected as the 2019 recipient of Arts South Australia's Major Commission Fund (Public Art and Design) giving Karl's incredible concept, originally presented in May 2019, both the location and funding to be created.

Installed in early October 2020, and with official launch held in March 2021, this piece is located at 128 Prospect Road, Prospect, and can be viewed from Ground Floor and Level 1 during opening hours of Prospect Library and Newmarch Gallery, and also from Prospect Road at any time of the day or night.

Newmarch Gallery is excited to bring you 'I'm Here', an interview with Damien Shen.

Damien Shen is a South Australian man of Ngarrindjeri and Chinese descent. As an artist he draws on both of these powerful cultural influences to create works of intense personal meaning. In using his artistic talent to share his story he aims to open the eyes of viewers to new ways of seeing Australian identity and Aboriginal art.

Interviewed by Pete Lindon, member of Prospect Arts Action Network, this is not to be missed.

Jasmine Crisp is the winner of the Prospect Portrait Prize for 2019. 'Jasmine has presented a complex emotive portrait of one individuals journey, the trials and tribulations of being away from one’s home. In this tour de force of technique she references Sandro Botticelli’s classic Birth of Venus created in 1486, often referred to as the ‘Venus on a half shell’, which remains a symbol of idealised beauty and the perfection of form as conceived in Italy over 5 centuries ago. Jasmine has presented a complex emotional portrait which both indulges the viewers gaze and subverts it. She is at once beautiful and tragic; intimate and isolated. The portrait is also an evocation of humanities current state anxiety in regards the natural world. She is at once a part of it and apart from it'. Russell Kelty, Independent Judge, Assistant Curator, Asian Art, Art Gallery of South Australia.
