As part of the annual South Australian Living Artists (SALA) festival, artists Karen Hammat and Emanda Fretwell have teamed up to present an exhibition titled ‘Curiouser and Curiouser?’.
Inspiration for the exhibition is Alice in Wonderland trips through a Boho Victorian parlour. The mad, odd, intriguing and unusual results will be on display at Yankalilla Yarns Fine Art Gallery at the end of Glebe Ave Yankalilla, from August 4 to 12.
Visitors to the gallery will be able to delve into a Wunderkammer world created with painting, assemblage and handmade objects of beauty and peculiarity.
Karen is an established artist and the owner of Yankalilla Yarns Fine Art Gallery.
Karen completed her Bachelor in Visual Arts and Applied Design in 2005.

She has been involved in numerous group and solo exhibitions and has won a number of awards.
Her work features in private collections in both Australia and Europe.
Emanda is also a well-known Yankalilla artist and curator.
She is acclaimed for her quirky, often humorous and highly collectible works.
In this exhibition she is continuing her exploration of assemblage, reimagining and reusing everyday items to create curious curios.
All are welcome to the official opening by Alison Fort at 2pm on Saturday, August 4. Alison is a graphic designer with over 30 years’ experience both in Australia and internationally.
