SALA Festival


SALA Festival is an annual celebration of South Australian living visual artists. Held every August, thousands of artists exhibit in hundreds of venues throughout metropolitan and regional South Australia. In 2022, SALA celebrates it's 25th Festival!

The extraordinary range of exhibition venues, including online exhibitions, means that you can find art just about anywhere around the State, from traditional galleries to cafes, hairdressers, pubs and other unexpected places. The art is as diverse as the artists, with all kinds of media represented: painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, digital media, moving image, glass, ceramics, textiles and more.

SALA Festival is an excellent launching pad for emerging artists and curators to exhibit outside of their training institution for the first time. Established gallery spaces are committed to showcasing South Australian artists during the Festival.

SALA Festival has enormous reach which goes way beyond the boundaries of the Adelaide CBD, with exhibitions in the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Eyre Peninsula, Fleurieu Peninsula, Limestone Coast, Riverland, Flinders Ranges and beyond.
