Thank you to all the artists, sponsors, venues and attendees who made the 2017 Shepparton Festival - Mapping Shepp - a success.

See you all in 2018!

On December 11, 1997, three friends who had recently graduated from the Shepparton TAFE Visual Arts Diploma course, met for morning tea. They spoke with enthusiasm of their artistic plans for the future, and Lynne Hume, recognising the need for an art group in the region that encouraged contemporary art practices and ideas, declared she wanted to establish a contemporary art group. A short while later, she did.The first official meeting of what was soon to be named Splinter Contemporary Artists was at Humala Studio/Gallery in Kyabram on February 6 1998 with six founding members. One of these members, Dawn Greenham, suggested the name Splinter to demonstrate that the group was splintering away from traditional art.As Splinter Contemporary Artists are celebrating 20 years in 2018 they wish to hear from all past members to ensure the celebratory events and published history are inclusive. Past members are encouraged to make contact with Meg Doller 0409 508 101 or megdoller@live.com.au#helpfindsplinters #bydesign #splinterscontemporaryartists
