I’m proud to welcome you
to the 2016 Shimmer
the fourth time the City of
Onkaparinga has presented
this one of a kind photographic
event in our beautiful region.
Held throughout the month of September,
Shimmer is a series of exhibitions, events,
photographic workshops, and artist
talks staged across 15 distinctive and
photogenic venues in Port Noarlunga and
the McLaren Vale wine precinct.
This year’s geographic concentration
allows us to highlight the region’s innate
flair for hosting and producing quality
art events, while celebrating the area’s
excellent food and world-class wines.
Shimmer celebrates the work of 30
emerging and established contemporary
local and interstate photographers
including Mark Kimber, Emma Hack,
Peter Solness, and collective groups such
as Skrambled Eggs.
A choice of workshops will provide
opportunities to learn about light based
processes and techniques, develop new
skills in the Tintype Traveller, a pop up
caravan darkroom, or focus on creating
culinary images good enough to eat.
This year the City of Onkaparinga will
also launch the inaugural Shimmer
Photographic Time-lapse Competition to
encourage photographers to highlight
their time-lapse prowess.
The winner and finalists will be
announced and their work exhibited at
the launch of Shimmer, at the Arts Centre
in Port Noarlunga on Friday 2 September.
Shimmer continues to shine as a quality
arts event and an undisputed highlight
on the arts festival calendar.
I warmly welcome you all to Shimmer
and to our beautiful city.
