A chat with Mike Barr, Painter/Artist/Writer
Mike Barr Artist
"Mike's motto in painting is "It's not what you see - but what you feel. "His rainy cityscapes and expansive beachscapes are designed so viewers can enter, not merely look. He believes the camera is meant for detail but paintings are meant to catch the essence of time and place."

Artworx Gallery and Gifts is one of the leading contemporary Art Galleries on South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula.
Artworx Gallery & Gifts opened in October 2005 in the historic river port of Goolwa, 80 kilometres south of South Australia's capital city of Adelaide. Within months of opening, it had established itself as a must-see venue and within a year was being hailed as the finest contemporary gallery on the Fleurieu.
Its success has been confirmed by the SA Great organisation and the Southern Alexandrina Business Association, who have both made special Awards to Artworx in recognition of the gallery's contribution to the local arts scene and local artists.
Exhibiting are highly talented, award winning artists from around the country works including original paintings, jewellery, wood, metal, sculptures and gifts.
Artworx Gallery and Gifts is located in the centre of Goolwa's heritage precinct, in an 1850s stone cottage and warehouse near the town's restaurants, hotels and historic wharf and railway station, where paddle steamers and steam trains rule. With five rooms plus a courtyard, there is plenty for viewing and contemplating.
Works can be shipped throughout Australia and overseas.
Artworx Gallery and Gifts is an experience! Go and Enjoy!
