Submerged Exhibition - Portland Library
Monday, September 23, 2019
to Saturday, November 2, 2019

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Submerged Exhibition
Glenelg Libraries is excited to welcome Submerged an exhibition presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council. Following a national project with workshops held across the country to develop the exhibition and to source shipwreck stories, 68 shipwreck stories were nominated by 46 maritime museums and heritage institutions from around Australia with 14 of the most compelling stories selected to feature in the exhibition.

Australia’s coast is the final resting place of over 11,000 shipwrecks – roughly one wreck for every three kilometres of coastline. And Victoria’s City of Rayville is one of 14 wrecks whose stories will feature in a nationally touring panel exhibition Submerged – Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks uncovering Australia’s rich shipwreck history.

The City of Rayville is said to be the first American ship sunk during World War II. It was carrying a cargo of lead from Port Pirie to New York in 1940 when it struck a sea-mine off Cape Otway. All but one of its 38 crew members escaped.

The exhibition also features wrecks of merchant vessels, steamers, schooners, whalers and a submarine. The oldest wreck featured is WA’s Batavia. Its 1629 loss on Beacon Island, and subsequent mutiny, is one of the most dramatic events in Dutch and Australian history.

EVERY BRILLIANT THING
Friday, October 4, 2019
7:30 PM - 7:30 PM
EVERY BRILLIANT THING by Duncan Macmillan with Jonny Donahoe

You’re seven years old. Mum’s in the hospital. Dad says she’s “done something stupid.” She finds it hard to be happy. So you start to make a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world.
Everything worth living for:
1. Ice cream
2. Water fights
3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV
4. The color yellow
5. Things with stripes
6. Rollercoasters
7. People falling over
You leave it on her pillow. You know she read it because she’s corrected your spelling. Soon, the list will take on a life of its own.
A play about depression and the lengths we will go to for those we love.
What’s on your list?

A solo performance by Karl Hatton. Running time 75 minutes.

Sandford in Bloom - Open Garden
Sunday, October 20, 2019
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
In the part of Sandford that is known locally as ‘old Irish Town’, where a group of Irish immigrants settled when the village was a youngster, is a secret haven for garden lovers. For the first, and only time, this garden will be open to the public. The impetus for the event is raising funds for the Sandford Hall.

Step through conifer arches into a formally laid out rose garden, or one of the avenues leading to separate outdoor ‘rooms’. Pause to admire the ‘found object’ sculptures. Sit by the small lake to take in the surrounds.

There is plenty to see and inspire on the two-acre allotment with its many unusual trees, shrubs, water features and flower borders.

There will be the opportunity to purchase a selection of potted plants, relax with a cuppa and sweet treat, and generally soak up the ambience of a wonderful ‘secret’ garden.

$12 entry, Children under 15 Free
