Visual Arts Studios

Tutti Visual Arts is a dynamic arts program for young adults with intellectual and learning disabilities, incorporating painting, drawing, printmaking, digital art and sculpture.

The Brighton-based program expanded in 2017 to provide arts programs at Port Adelaide through a new partnership with Fontanelle Gallery, and in the Barossa Valley in partnership with The Barossa Council.

2018 program days are as follows:

  • Brighton on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
  • Port Adelaide on Monday and Tuesday
  • Barossa Valley on Wednesday

Tutti provides a studio environment where artists explore and engage in 2D, 3D and new media projects. Led by a team of passionate and dedicated creative professionals, the program supports the development of artists’ careers and individual professional practice. Creative collaborations within the program and with other art organisations Tutti’s visual arts studio an energetic and stimulating community of artists.

Creative outcomes of our program have seen our artists exhibit their work locally, nationally, and overseas. Artworks have been projected onto iconic buildings, appeared as public installations and been recognised for their excellence.

Tutti’s 2018 Fringe exhibition, Wild Things, won the BankSA Adelaide Fringe Week 4 Award for Best Visual Art & Design. Tutti visual artist Kurt Bosecke won the 2017 BankSA Adelaide Fringe Award for Best Visual Art & Design.

SALA Exhibitions

Tutti Arts had three exhibitions for the 2018 South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival – one at Port Adelaide, one in Brighton and one in the Barossa Valley. 

Tessellate

Artists from Tutti’s Port Adelaide visual arts studio explore shape and pattern in this colourful exhibition featuring works on paper, canvas and sculpture and installation. These energetic works take the forms around us and repeat them to create a vibrant mosaic effect – a tessellated view of the world.

Wonder Rooms

Wonder Rooms is a transformative exhibition of old and new works that pays homage to the benevolent Lady Galway to whom Tutti’s Brighton studio building was dedicated exactly 100 years ago.

As a tribute to the woman heralded as ‘a wonder’, Tutti Artists and staff will reimagine the building as a canvas and present work that, like Lady Galway’s orations, has the power to influence social change.

Tutti means ‘everyone’

Tutti Visual Artists based in the Barossa Valley explore personal themes in this exhibition through mixed media, drawings, paintings and sculpture.

Alice Green“My interests are the female body and fantasy. Mermaids combine these interests – they are slim, strong and beautiful. I like painting the underwater environment I can imagine they exist in.”

Grace Bell“I like to express myself in the way that the artist Jackson Pollock did. I’m also interested in incorporating natural objects and things like shells and sand into my work.”
