David Dridan David Dridan OAM, one of South Australia’s most eminent painters and co-founder of the Fleurieu Art Prize, welcomes you to travel through the wonderland that inspires him and a thriving community of Fleurieu aritsts to create inspirational artworks. "The Fleurieu means everything to me. It’s where I’ve chosen to call home, in Strathalbyn with my wife Sarah since 2004 and in Clarendon before that, and it’s the place that inspires me to keep working on a daily basis. I may be 82 years old now, but I wake each morning and look out the window with a sense of excitement about what to paint next. It’s been a delight for me to bring other artists into the area – John Olsen, Russell Drysdale, Barry Humphries – and take them to my favourite spots to paint and revel in the beauty of the region. It’s a place where an artist can access and work in the most magnificent settings. You can see the effects of this in my Clarendon Barrel Ends Collection – painted on oak wine barrel ends by 27 artists that I invited – which is now being exhibited permanently in the Bremerton Winery cellar door at Langhorne Creek. It makes complete sense for the Fleurieu to be an important hub for art; it’s where artists can live, work, and make a commercial success of their work. It’s a place where art lovers can come and see both galleries and the landscape – and make sense of it all." 1/9TH AD ARTWORX GALLERY & GIFTS 12 Hays Street, Goolwa Ph: (08) 8555 0949 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org www.artworxgallery.com.au The Fleurieu’s Finest Contemporary Art Gallery Situated in the heart of the Goolwa heritage precinct – Artworx features original contemporary art, jewellery, metal, glass and wood.

Historic buildings and antique shops can also be found in other towns such as Port Elliot, with buildings dating back to the 1840s, and the historic river port town of Goolwa.
