Art Evening – Monday 3rd August, 6-8P

We would like to invite you to share a bowl of soup on a chilly winter evening with friends to see Deb Clarke’s presentation of photos from a recent trip to the south west of Iceland, at the end of the northern winter.


Geologically speaking we live in one of the oldest places on the planet. Iceland is the youngest. Share Deborah’s fascination with this extreme opposite to Central Australia, and her discovery of intriguing similarities.

Fly with her to the other side of the world and immerse yourselves in the most extraordinarily different and beautiful landscape.

When: 6-8pm Monday 3rd August

Where: Crispe St, Art Shed.
