sala 2019

SALA South Australian Living Artists takes place every August in South Australia with locations as varied as inner city Adelaide to far flung regional centres. Each year it becomes larger, and more interesting, as the erudite mix of established and emerging artists becomes wider and wider.

Planning a day visiting SALA exhibitions in between drinks and lunch, dinner and late night supper is a lot of fun. One requires an open mind with SALA because the most interesting and eclectic art is often found in the most unlikely places. Do not, for instance, dismiss school art where the innocence of presentation is often delightfully irresistible and frequently at a price that is equally irresistible.

My pick for your 2019 SALA day [into the night] trip is the Port [Port Adelaide] where there are multiple really interesting emerging artists. It’s easy to embellish your day, catch the train from Adelaide and then enjoy that there is quite a bit of diversity in the Port for dining and drinking options. We suggest The Port Admiral Hotel for drinks only, unless you’re a burger fancier. Our pick would be La Taqueria where simple Mexican food is delicious and their Margueritas are, thus far, the best we’ve found in Adelaide. Staying to early evening maybe drinks at the Crown and Anchor and early dinner at Low and Slow American Barbecue [reservations essential even for their first sitting at 6pm]…it’s not that authentic but it’s fun and the brisket is the best in Adelaide by a long mile. Sides are simple but okay, and wines, although a small selection are well chosen and equally well priced whether by the glass or the bottle. They do boast ribs but, having eaten ribs in the best places in Louisiana and Shanghai, they didn’t reach my bench mark. I still like this restaurant and their brisket with anything from their sides and a couple of glasses of excellent red always passes the test. Please check the links for opening hours. Being an old port town pubs abound and good coffee is also surprisingly easy to find in very quirky locations. We have two very favourite shops in the port The Lighthouse Toyshop  and the Yarn Trader. Both are the type of shop you’d expect to find in New York or Shanghai I just love them!

Editor’s note…exhibitions in restaurants, pubs and cafés may be terrific, but as we have not eaten at any, other than those recommended above…dine at your own may be fabulous and we certainly have an open mind!

Steven Bellosguardo

Steven Bellosguardo fuses contemporary techniques with a traditional approach to sculpture’s original subject, the human figure. His first solo show features an installation of large-scale drawings made from steel. Following the structure of an apprenticeship, Steven turned to modern masters Calder, Noguchi, and Moore as mentors, studying the medium of sculpture through simple, refined, and elegant compositions. A series belonging to 20th-century modernism, Steven lays his training to rest in this exhibition of playful forms.

ART Action solidarity
Josef Felber

This is an exhibition where art lovers are invited to make the price? Is art still a worthy activity in today’s cultural recession? In the 70’s while living in Zurich doing his art training Felber read the statement by Fritz Billeter, “To complete the process of art appreciation there are three equally important elements – the artist, the gallery and the collector”. With this in mind Felber attempts to show works where the audience of the exhibition, the art lover, is at the centre of the art appreciation process. Felber invites you all to participate in a conversation.

Daily Dose.

Nate Hutton, Sarah Roberts

Daily Dose examines everyday situations that feel eerie, yet horrifyingly normal.
The exhibition looks to challenge and make fun of stereotypes in the hope that growth can come from self-examination. It reminds us that we are human, and have ingrained habits that are hard to change. These habits can come many forms, including: sex, technology, addiction, bad behaviour and validation.
The artists remind us that we are responsible for our actions, and those decisions have consequences that impact others.
Highlighting the need for repetition and continual ’one on ones’ with ourselves, it is not about taking a magic pill to solve your problems or even making them disappear. Self-growth, self-love and positive change comes from introspection, communication, learning and healing.
This is your daily dose.

Monster Mash
Sue Ninham

In 2011 Sue began to paint a series of watercolour creatures or Monsters. Her father had died not long before and she was very sad. She was also prolific in her creative output at this time and the Monsters were a part of this outpouring of creative energy. They were playful and quirky, despite her sadness. There were buses and birds. There were spacemen landing and pirates sailing. Some trotted, some trundled and some were moving with speed. They were all unexpected.
Sue painted hundreds of them over the next two years, naming them and writing a story for each. She designed the winning 2012 Fringe poster, featuring nine of them. They have been quiet for a while but are stirring again. They will be unleashed for SALA 2019. Watch out!

A Collective Perspective: Five exhibitions from South Australian Artists Kunyi June Anne McInerney, Tania Carpinelli, Karl James, Belili Valkyrie and Frances Hill

Kunyi June Anne McInerney: My Paintings Speak For Me
Curated by Maggie Fletcher
In this exhibition, South Australian artist Kunyi June Anne McInerney draws upon childhood experiences as a member of the Stolen Generation in the Oodnadatta Children’s Home during the 1950’s. Kunyi’s vibrant use of colour, facial expression, and depiction of landscape document her memories and reflect on the strict life with other mission kids who became her only family. Kunyi’s paintings and stories reveal an often-invisible part of Australian history. In the artist’s words, Kunyi says “these are my stories from a dry remote place where my experiences were so different from what Australian children know today. I want to tell my story, so they don’t ever do it again. They took away my family, my culture and who I could have been. These are not fairy tales, they are true. I want people to understand what happened. Painting is the best way for me to tell my stories.” My Paintings Speak For Me is a sensitive exploration of the experiences of cultural loss, separation from family, and finding fun times amongst hardship. This is a Country Arts SA touring exhibition.

Tania Carpinelli: The Garden Where Fairies Play
Impressionist paintings on our synergy with nature. The floral with its undeniable effect on emotions and vibrant paddocks with endless dreams. Charming and serene acrylic art adding harmony parallel to nature. Paintings that will inject joy and a blast of sunlight to any room.

Karl James: Postcards from a Wonderland Curiouser and curiouser, as Alice would say. The landscape paintings in this exhibition are both recognizable and unknown. They are the side glances, half remembered like dreams as you travel around the state. They invoke a distinct sense of place yet are the product of the mind’s eye. They are but they aren’t. Curiouser and curiouser.

Belili Valkyrie: I Don’t Like Other people assuming I will do the right thing, assuming I am someone I’m not or expecting things of me I can no longer give. What I really don’t like though, is caring so much about what others expect and assuming what others think of me. The pressures I feel from others is created by myself mostly. This exhibition is an exploration of the things that bug me about myself and about what others think. It’s a cry for help and realisation that I might not need any. It is a rebellion. Against others, and my own head.

Frances Hill: Self-titled Inspired by 90’s fashion and the artist’s love of bright colours, this work by Frances Hill represents her bright and colourful mind as well as a surreal representation of crowd phobia. A mixed media exhibition including acrylic paint on canvas and digital and free-hand drawing. You will fall in love with these eclectic and joyful works.

Heart Threads
Ceramics, Craft, Print-making
Annette Rohde

Heart Threads honours all living things and their part in our lives. Stories give us a sense of connection, belonging and purpose, they sustain us.

All things and their part in our lives are important. From the fallen leaves and food waste that go back into the soil, to create the important nutrients to grow more life and food, to the relationships and experiences in our lives that we learn from the give us happiness and fill us with love. Be it our children, our pets, our intimate partners, our parents, our work mates. Everyone and every living thing is important to life. These things give us purpose, and meaning, they sustain us.

When people share their stories, they share their knowledge, wisdom and experience, which feeds our soul, fosters a sense of connection, worthiness and belonging, helps us to appreciate and honour our purpose of being, and helps us to understand the importance we all play in the eco system of life.

We are reminded of the significant of living things, these are our Heart Threads, the life force, energy and wisdom that connects us all.
