sala in the fleurieu

Posted: 19 August 2018

You don’t have to be an art aficionado to appreciate the SALA festival.


In fact, that is what the SALA is all about - showcasing the talent and creativity of South Australian artists, regardless of their age, background or experience.

The South Australian Living Artists festival really does live up to its name – when else can you experience the extensive array of art on such a large scale? The diversity of works is impressive.

The 2018 Fleurieu Peninsula exhibitions are equally as inspiring. The mediums range from watercolour, painting and sculpture through to jewellery, photography, textiles, string art, pottery and glass. So, no matter what your interest, there is a plethora to feast your eyes on.

With too many Fleurieu Peninsula venues to list here we have selected a few to get your creative juices flowing, as well as a few suggestions to indulge in food therapy:
