Within the City of Onkaparinga there are many significant geological sites that show the ancient land formations of South Australia. Some sites date to the Neoproterozoic era (between 635 to 1000 million years ago).

Kellaway, an Adelaide based artist with family links to the area, will use a series of local geological trail guides as a starting point to explore, capture (through sketches, photography and/or casting) and then represent these rocks and formations in glass. She also plans to engage the local community with a series of information sessions and a call for local photographers to capture the essence of these amazing sites.

Exhibition dates: Saturday 12 December - Saturday 30 January
Exhibition venue: Sauerbier House, 21 Wearing St, Port Noarlunga SA 5167
