Patricia Ingram

Patricia Ingram own and runs an art gallery specializing in Indigenous art in Adelaide having worked at Tandanya for several years. A participant in the second NISMA, Patricia said that the lab was a way of “kick starting for people interested in new media”. As an artist, Patricia has worked with digital technologies particularly digital photography and image manipulation. She is interested in making short documentaries about Indigenous artists. Through these imaging processes, she has experimented with images, animations and very short films. She also works as a textile artist and she has collaborated with a fashion designer to make wearable art. Using other aspects of textile art, Patricia has transferred digital images onto fabric and incorporated them with threads and handmade felt to make wall hangings.

My name is Patricia Ingram and I own a small art gallery on the coast in SA. I display local indigenous and non-indigenous artists works and also some Alice Springs artists. Recently I was involved in SALA week which is a celebration of South Australian Living Artists, over 200 galleries participated in that week. I had a local artist Cherryl Sherrah display her work and demonstrate mosaics.

Early next year I will be involved in a larger Art Gallery in the city of Adelaide. This gallery will dedicate a whole floor to Australia wide Indigenous artists.
