2018 SALA Exhibition
Written on the 18 July 2018
Community Living Australia is once again hosting our art exhibition during the South Australian Living Arts Festival (SALA) this August.
SALA is an annual state-wide festival of visual art that promotes and celebrates the many talented visual artists in SA. We are very proud as an organisation to be providing artists with disability with a platform to also take part in this fantastic festival and to utilise their creativity in expressing their inner worlds.
We are proud to have artists exhibiting from across many regions of South Australia including Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills, Murraylands, Riverland, Fleurieu and Kangaroo Island and the South East.
This year, we have made the exhibition open to anybody living with disability in South Australia not just to clients of Community Living Australia.
Last year's exhibition at the Bridgewater Mill displayed more than 50 art pieces by over 20 artists. All artwork for sale was sold and it was an amazing experience for our artists.
This year we have close to 60 artists registered and could have close to 200 art pieces on display!
In only its second year, the exhibition has grown substantially to become one of the largest exhibitions of art by artists living with disability in the state, and it is our aim to grow this substantially over the coming years.
To display this substantial amount of work, the exhibition will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on the 'Skyway'.
Artists have the option to auction off their works with full proceeds from any sale going to the artist.
The exhibition will open on Wednesday the 15th of August and will remain open to the public until Wednesday the 12th of September.
Come along and check it out!
