Helen Lewis Exhibition

Our very own Helen Lewis has a very special photographic exhibition on display to the public in the hallways of the Women's and Children's Hospital in North Adelaide, as part of the Fringe Festival. The works are just a sampling of the stunning photos taken by Adelaide nature photographer, Helen Lewis on her first overseas photographic adventure to Africa in 2016.

Did you Know a Group of Zebra's is called a Zeal?, 2016 Helen Lewis

Please see this article on Weekend Notes (written by our very own Paula McManus) for more details (and pictures)

OR

See this website HERE for more information on the Exhibition.

The PACC wish Helen every success with her exhibition from her first ever overseas travel adventure - by the look of the photos, we are sure it will not be her last!

Congratulations Helen, on such a wonderful exhibition.
