Living arts festival fun for all

Artists from across the region are being invited to get their brushes and paints out, grab a camera, sewing needle or lump of clay and be a part of this year’s South Australian Living Arts (SALA) Festival.

The SALA Festival is held each year throughout the month of August and thousands of artists’ work across the state will be exhibited in a range of city and regional locations.

The Adelaide Plains Council (APC) is proud to be involved in this year’s SALA Festival once again and hopes to promote and celebrate the many talented artists residing in the area.

This year’s local theme is “A New Beginning: embracing our future prosperity as Adelaide Plains Council” and APC is currently calling for expression of interest from artists who wish to display their original artwork/s in this year’s festival.

The SALA Festival allows artists at any level, and working in any genre and medium, to display their works of art, which is accessible to the whole community as many of the venues are libraries, council offices, hotels and cafes; less ‘formal’ places where people of all ages and backgrounds are likely to frequent.

The Two Wells Library will be transformed into an art gallery during August and members of the public are welcome to view the exhibition during the library’s opening hours.

Some of the nominated artwork may be available for sale.

In past years artists have displayed a wide variety of artwork in the library including quilts, sculptures, photography, paintings as well as a unique “Alice in Wonderland – Mad Hatter”
display.

Nomination forms are now available at the APC website – www.apc.sa.gov.au or can be picked up at the Mallala Office, Two Wells Service Centre and the Two Wells Library.
