Renew Exhibition Launch
Recycled, Upcycled and Found Objects transformed into Art
South Australian Living Artists Festival (SALA) 2015
Opens Sunday August 2, 2-4pm
Renew celebrates the ingenuity of the artistic spirit. Working within the theme of recycling, up-cycling, reusing and repurposing, 50 artists have viewed the world around them with fresh eyes and created exciting new works of art.
Using everyday and found objects, as well as taking inspiration from what we might normally regard as rubbish, the results will surprise you. Each object is transformed from it’s former self to an intriguing, wonderful and sometimes barely recognisable creation.
I am frantically getting ready for SALA at the City Library!
It’s such a great opportunity to display my work to a new audience, and I’m trying really hard to get it just right. Some things are working perfectly…others are leaving me a bit disappointed. Time is running out, and at some stage I will just have to be happy with what I am exhibiting. This happens every year, and is part of the process for me.
I feel really fortunate that I am able to participate in SALA at the City Library this year. When I opened the SALA guide I couldn’t believe how many great artists they are exhibiting at the same time! It’s definitely a perfect place to start the month of SALA. Our opening is Friday 31 July from 6.00pm until 7.00pm. The exhibitions will be opened by Councillor Susan Clearihan with emcee Amanda Blair.
Here is a list of the other exhibitors and their exhibitions:
- Artsparks Collective – Belonging (Featuring Julian Lee, Bruce Marquis, Terry Paterson, Virginia Paterson, Mignon Schneider and Ruth Turner).
- Bittondi Printmakers
- Naomi Fry – Creative Journey
- ACH Group Arts Community – Food for Thought

Here is one of the pieces that will be on display; one that I am happy with!
