PETRICHOR: VINTAGE FESTIVAL ART PRIZE
Opening: 18 April 5:30pm
The Barossa Regional Gallery is proud to present the Vintage Festival Art Prize Exhibition 2019 'Petrichor'. This year's exhibition includes over 77 works from artists across South Australia and beyond. A long-standing Barossa Vintage Festival tradition, over the years the Art Prize has contributed to establishing the Barossa Vintage Festival Art Collection.
Petrichor, meaning the smell of rain on hot dry ground, is a term coined by two Australian scientists in the 1960s. Combining two greek words, petra, stone and ichor, the fluid that flows through the veins of the gods, it specifically describes the scent produced by the release of plant based oils the rocks and earth, in response to coming rain.
Petrichor is proudly supported by the Barossa Council, Barossa Quarries, Marnie Wark and Stephan Knoll MP.
Exhibition Dates: 16 April - 10 June 2019
