The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is a statewide festival of Visual Art.
The SALA Festival was established in 1998 to promote and celebrate the many talented visual artists in South Australia every August.
The extraordinary range of exhibition venues means that you can find art just about anywhere around SA, 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.
The City of Port Adelaide Enfield is a huge part of the festival – here are our picks in the area:
8 @ Jackalope
Nancy Forrester, Wendy Glamocak, Mandi Glenn Jones, Kathy Harrison, Kelli Lewis, Susan McKenzie, Bev Puckridge, Sandra Vines
