SALA Festival - update

The SALA Festival has ended with a beautiful street party on King William road.
The organisers, Karen paris and the SALA team, with the support of the Unley council, specifically Matthew Ives and his team, could not have hoped for a better day.
The weather was beautiful and there were plenty of cashed up visitors walking around the works displayed everywhere in shops, cafes and the SALA ON SALE gallery.
Congratulations to all for a great effort.
The really good thing was that the children have not been forgotten.
If we want art to be part of the human existence in the future, the children must be taught to love art. And this is exactly what the organisers have done this time.
Adelaide looks like such a great place to raise children.

The SALA Festival

More an more I have to admit that Adelaide is aiming for the title.
Speaking of which, the SALA Festival is on in Adelaide and surrounds.
As expected, the government, instead of using the event to promote the Festival and Artistic State, is ignoring the festival, the same as it does with all correspondence regarding the Outsiders Festival.
The battle continues while the stormwater is flowing into the Ocean.

Club 68 art launch

A permanent display of the collaborative work of Club 68 has been opened at the Norwood Lib ray, 110, The Parade, Norwood.
Only 8 paintings with subjects of interest to children have been tastefully placed in the children's reading area of the library.
It is a nice homage to the work of all the artists involved and their mentor, the sculptor Renate Nisi.
A very good reason to visit the library and have a few pleasant and quiet moments, away from the hustle and bustle of an otherwise busy city.
