SALA in the Barossa4 Aug. 2021
The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is a state-wide festival of visual arts established with a vision of inclusivity, welcoming artists and audiences of all kinds since 1998.
Given the Barossa’s strong community propensity for crafting and creating, celebrating local identities, cultures and histories, it is no surprise that the SALA Festival will come alive locally this August.
Barossa Regional Gallery will be open every day during August with three exciting exhibitions featuring local artists. Running with Wolves showcases the work of Angela Koehler, Patricia Rose and Vicki Rochau in which they explore contemporary literary references through an array of creative materials.
Simultaneously, the Evolution of Souls exhibition will show in the Tanunda Soldiers’ Memorial Hall space, a collection of emerging and established artists each having previously exhibited over the past 10 years in the Creative Souls exhibition series. The Linear Space will host the collaborative installation I Paint Flowers So They Do Not Die, featuring works from Faith Lutheran College Year 7-9 students.
The Barossa Bushgardens will host the inaugural Acquisitive Sculpture Award, exhibiting sculptural works in the beautiful natural surrounds of the gardens every day throughout the SALA Festival, with the winner of the Award announced on Sunday 1 August.
Barossa Visitor Centre will present a series of hands-on workshops hosted by local makers and artists, including:
- The art of watercolours with Kat Korossy
- Pen & wash with Anthea Louise
- Funky friends with Anthea Louise
- Recycled earwear with Anthea Louise
- The art of wine with Z Wine
- EatArt with Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy
- Fungi sculpture with Julia Featherstone
From art you can eat, painting and creating - there's a place for everyone at the Barossa Makers' Table.
