2-25 August 2013
The Luminous Trail used the landscape of Port Adelaide as a gallery, moving the audience from street scape, to laneways and interiors, to experience delightful small scale illuminated arts intimately presented with the midwinter darkness and heritage buildings as a fascinating backdrop.
Port Adelaide with its rustic buildings, weather worn stone walls and charming historic facades is a wonderful and mysterious after dark canvas for lighting artists, as it has less light pollution than suburbs full of bright shops and traffic – the ideal place to really enjoy luminous arts.
The Luminous Trail was presented in Port Adelaide as a part of the SALA Festival (2-25 August 2013) and was a showcase of the the diverse and beautiful practise of illuminated artworks and ephemeral art and creative ways of working with light.
Artists exhibited in the event included: “Harry”, Michelle Wegund, Patty Chehade, Steve Glass, Nat Rogers, Penny Campton, Danica Gacesa McLean, Lucy Thurley, Penny Mortimer, Peter Ogrady, Peter Thompson, Vanessa Kalderovskis, Danica Headland, Nick de Rohan, Craig Laurendet, Kathryn Sproul, Neville Cichon, Jasmin McAllister, Sue McKenzie, Mike Retter, Barbara Saberton, Cindi Drennan, Luku Kukuku, Allison Whyatt and many others.
