Gawler Community Art Gallery fully supports the aims and Objectives of the South
Australia Living Artists (SALA) Festival, held each year in August.
From next year the Gallery aims to be a participating venue under the SALA
umbrella. For now, though, we are supporting our local Art On The Plains festival in
alignment with SALA.

What is SALA?
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. The aim was - and remains - to extend visual arts audiences, and as an umbrella organisation, [SALA has] continued a policy of inclusiveness allowing all South Australian visual artists of any level and working in any medium to be part of [its] annual SALA Festival every August.

Vision

South Australian visual artists working at any stage of career and in any medium are
able to make, share and receive recognition for their work.
South Australian communities and audiences are enriched and inspired by their
engagement with South Australian visual art, including the large number of ‘incidental’ arts audiences for whom SALA’s local exhibitions is their first point of engagement with the arts.

SALA is a vibrant and valued part of all South Australian communities and inter/nationally recognised as a diverse, democratic and inclusive visual arts champion that enhances our own and the world’s understanding of this unique place and our pride in the art it creates.

Approach

ARTIST-CENTRIC              
South Australia’s living visual artists are at our heart.

INCLUSIVE                          
Our democratic, open-access model includes South Australian visual artists working
at every level, in any medium, from all backgrounds and all parts of the state.

CONNECTED                      
We listen and respond to our artists, connect and engage with our communities, and
work in collaboration with our colleagues and partners.

SUPPORTIVE                     
We support and nurture South Australian visual artists and audiences, create
pathways, amplify their voices, and advocate on their behalf.

INNOVATIVE 
We are curious and innovative, always learning and evolving.

ETHICAL                              
We are professional, respectful and accountable.
