The works of Janette Humble are lining the walls of the Coorong Gallery this month, with the exhibition “in essence” being shown in all of its glory.

Ms Humble, who has captured the landscape and daily life around the Coorong district, will have the exhibition formally opened on February 11, from 2pm to 5pm.

Coorong council arts and community development officer Susie Ifould said Ms Humble was incredible artist.

“As a self-taught artist, she’s already had exhibitions across the State and her popular works are held in private collections across the world – including Germany, the United Kingdom and Singapore,” Ms Ifould said.

“This exhibition kicks off the gallery’s biggest year to date, with other exhibits including: ‘The Making of Meningie’ and the internationally renowned Anne Frank exhibit, titled ‘Let me be myself’.”

The council is also planning to take part in the state-wide annual SALA artistic program.

“We’re also busy planning our inaugural, council-wide, South Australian Living Artist (SALA) Festival program for later this year,” Ms Ifould said.

“This is an opportunity to shine a light on some of the Coorong’s best local artists and engage the whole region in the arts, history and ideas,” she said.

The gallery, located at the Coorong Civic Centre, 95 Railway Terrace, is opened Mondays to Fridays from 8.30am to 5pm.
