Feature Artist


Morgan Allender

Morgan is a contemporary painter based in the Adelaide Hills,  South Australia. Profiled by Vogue Living Magazine (“Next Generation”, September 2013) as “one of today’s brightest crop of design and art talent”, she works primarily within a framework of large-scale, gestural paintings.

Her work reflects an ongoing exploration of the parallels between the materiality of oil paint and the chaotic elements of the natural world. Drawing on a multitude of sources, including botanical symbolism, ecology, talismans, herbalism, and the landscape genre, she is most interested in the spiritual and psychological interaction between people and plants, as well as long-standing gender associations with women, flowers and plant magic.

Graduating from Adelaide Central School of Art in 2004, Morgan has exhibited regularly in solo and group exhibitions in Melbourne and Adelaide. In 2015 she received the Country Arts Breaking Ground Award. In 2011 she founded the internationally acclaimed Tenth Meadow Studio, expanding her artistic projects to include large-scale botanical installations for exhibition and private events.

Her work is held in the Artbank collection and private collections in Australia, USA, Japan and Italy.


Emerging Artist

Jane Skeer

Jane completed her Bachelor of Visual Art (Hons) with First Class Honours at Adelaide Central School of Art in 2015.

Her work, Quiet Square, was selected for the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts Hatched: National Graduate Show in 2016.

Skeer won the Hill Smith Gallery/Helpmann Academy Friends Award and the Watsons’ People’s Choice Award at the Helpmann Academy 2016 Graduate Show. Jane works predominantly in sculpture and installation, responding to observations of people, objects and materiality. She seeks to prove that the unwanted is in fact useful and that it might prompt us to rethink our relationship with it.

Jane is the 2017 Adelaide Festival Centre/SALA Artist in Residence for DreamBIG Children’s Festival and SALA Festival. This work can be viewed in and around Adelaide Festival Centre from 18 – 27 May and SALA Festival from 1 – 31 August. Jane currently occupies a studio space, newly named Sister Gallery, at Fontanelle Gallery & Studios.


Aboriginal Art


Arts Ceduna

Situated at the Ceduna Arts and Culture Centre (CAACC), Arts Ceduna sells artwork on behalf of at least 136 artists in the Far West region of South Australia. Established in July 2001, the development of this business has been a great achievement for the Aboriginal community in Ceduna and the Far West, providing economic and artistic development opportunities to artists in Oak Valley, Yalata, Scotdesco and Koonibba.

Artists from the Far West Coast of South Australia are strongly influenced by their environment with strong connections to Country. To the west of Ceduna, the vast plains of the Nullabor inspire artists’ work, while the area north of Ceduna boasts the largest untouched virgin mallee and spinifex country, to the south the pristine waters of the Great Australian Bight and to the east, ancient rock formations such as the Gawler Ranges. This diverse cultural environment of land, sea and desert is reflected strongly in the work of the artists.

The Star Portrait

Every year, 3 Adelaide artists are invited to take part in the popular Star Portrait competition to capture the likeness of a prominent South Australian. This year, our Star Portrait subject is Australian Marathon Runner Jess Trengove. Join in the fun on Saturday 9 September at 2.00pm for the unveiling and find out which portrait Jess chooses as her favourite

The Star Portrait for 2017


Jess Trengrove

Jess is an Australian Marathon runner and has represented Australia at the 2012 London Olympics and 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. At the 2014 Commonwealth Games, she won the bronze medal, running a then personal best of 2:30:12.

Jess’ passion for athletics was ignited almost two decades earlier in her hometown of Naracoorte in South East of South Australia. A keen sportswoman, Jess was always involved in athletics, however it wasn’t until her early twenties that she truly rose to prominence.

She ran her first marathon in March 2012 in Nagoya, Japan, where she set an Olympic A-Qualifying time of 2 hours, 31 minutes. She was the third South Australian athletics competitor to qualify for the Games, and prepared for them by training in Adelaide. She finished the London Olympic marathon in 39th place with a time of 2:31:17.

When she is not pounding the pavement Jess works as a Physiotherapist and champions a healthy lifestyle through her ambassador roles with BUPA and the Adelaide Eye and Laser Clinic.

In 2016, Trengove won the People’s Choice Award at the Advertiser / Channel 7 Sport Star of the Year awards.
