From the people who brought you RUST, SALT, TAR, SMOKE, KNOT and GRIT. We bring you GRAIN, our latest adventure in a series of award winning exhibitions that bring together a group of contemporary artists to produce works based on simple elemental themes. GRAIN will be appropriately housed in the Packing Shed at the historic Hart's Mill in Port Adelaide.

The grain of timber, leather, paper, cloth, wheat, barley and rice. Of common sense and truth. There are 20 grains in a scruple, 60 in a dram and 480 in an ounce. It's the smallest possible quantity; hint, suspicion, tinge, iota, smidgen. It's essential for whisky, photography, bread, urban planning, archery, dashboard decoration, raising chickens and feeding North Korean Zombies. We will bring you grist to the Mill, against the grain and all with a grain of salt.

RUST, SALT, TAR, SMOKE, KNOT and GRIT were the first 6 exhibitions in a series that has brought together a group of contemporary artists to produce works based on simple elemental themes. Our most recent award winning exhibition GRIT took place at the previously inaccessible Packing Shed in Hart's Mill, Port Adelaide as will our 2017 exhibition GRAIN.

In 2009, the genesis for the first exhibition RUST came from a desire to bring people to the Port, firstly to enjoy contemporary art and secondly to make them aware of what our community was enduring due to the loss of the Port's maritime character and heritage.

The themes for these exhibitions are based on gritty and quintessential elements found in any waterfront or harbour. The artists are given freedom to explore and interpret each theme as they like with the result that each of the exhibitions has contained work that has been diverse, cohesive, surprising, thought-provoking, beautiful, humorous and challenging.
