Twenty two artists, all on diverse creative journeys, converge at Jennifer Robin's welcoming table in the small seaside fishing town of Edithburgh.
Jennifer Robin moved to Edithburgh about two years ago. She brought with her an energy and enthusiasm for art and community that she has been unpacking it into the art gallery and arts group she has started. The art group started in October last year. Painting sessions turned into shared meals, projects and now group exhibitions.
Jennifer restored an old shop front and began the Edithburgh Artisan gallery. Local pubs are now also considering permanent exhibition space for local artists, and exhibition openings are bringing new energy and creativity to this sleepy seaside town.
Meeting some of the Edithburgh artists and putting together this video gave me an insight into the different journeys that bring people to art-making. I imagine Terry Braund clambering around the Flinders Rangers paintbrush in hand and delighted in June Harrison's quiet revelation; she discovered the joy of art sitting at a craft table and being handed a canvas and brush and told to "just start at the top". These days June starts wherever she likes.
