With Hindley Street being more commonly known for its nightlife and shenanigans, perhaps Renew Adelaide’s latest lease will shine a new light on it, exposing a more artistic and cultural side to Adelaide’s best-known party street. This new tenant is Artisan – A Collective and can be found at number 105 on the nightlife strip. However, open within normal daylight hours, this new space is anything but crude or tacky, providing a refined and well-lit space for some of South Australia’s best emerging and established makers.
Artisan – A Collective threw open its doors in an official opening last Thursday night, inviting a rather large crowd of guests to come and enjoy local produce and wine while taking a squizz at the starting line up. This included a vast selection of crafts including jewelry, porcelain, ceramics, pottery, sculpture, paintings, light work, furniture and metal work.
Most of these pieces are a result of emerging craftspeople relatively new to the South Australian art and creative scene and are still currently on display in the space. Many of the makers have developed their craft or trade through the world-renowned Jam Factory trainings, making Artisan- A Collective the latest foundation for exposing new talent.
The organisers of the space intend to run events that allow buyers to meet the makers, creating a more personalised transaction and shopping experience. The intention is to not only provide exposure for artists in a trendy new spot, but also to attract collectors to this new buying method that the arts world is starting to support. Artisan - A Collective will be run by this moral mindset, with a hope to present and promote our top quality local art and craftspeople in the right way.
Artisan – A Collective is open Tuesday- Friday. More information about the new space, the pieces on display and the makers can be found at the Artisan – A Collective Facebook Page
