Participate as a venue
The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is a state-wide celebration of visual art.
For the whole month of August you can find the work of South Australian artists not just in traditional gallery spaces, but in all kinds of venues across the State. From the walls of wineries in McLarenVale to Riverland cafes, projections on outback silos, paintings in library windows, and sculptures in beautiful gardens. Pubs, hotels, civic spaces, restaurants, shopping centres, hospitals, hairdressers, empty shopfronts, parks, stairwells, fences – just about any kind of space will do.
Hundreds of venues take part every year, displaying a range of visual art forms – painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewellery, glass, moving image, textile, papercraft, printmaking, metalwork, furniture, and more. We’ve seen animal portraits in pet stores; still lifes in the flower shop; stories of a community projected by night in the shop windows of the main street.
