Start date: 01 August 2017
The SALA Festival is an annual celebration of South Australian living visual artists. Held every August, literally thousands of artists exhibit in hundreds of venues throughout metropolitan and regional South Australia.
Featuring an extraordinary range of exhibition venues, both conventional and unusual, SALA is unique. The art is as diverse as the artists with multiple and mixed medium works, including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, digital media, moving image, glass, ceramics, textiles and more.
SALA is a particularly good launching pad for emerging artists and curators to exhibit outside of their training institution for the first time. While established gallery spaces make an annual commitment to showcasing South Australian artists during the event.
SALA Festival has enormous reach which goes way beyond the boundaries of the city with exhibitions in the Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, Eyre Peninsula, Fleurieu Peninsula, Limestone Coast, Riverland and beyond.
You can't miss SALA - as you fly into Adelaide Airport during August you'll be greeted by a SALA exhibition and then wherever you travel from the Barossa Valley to McLaren Vale visitors are welcomed by local art.
