The Saint Ignatius Art Show Re-imagined
The biennial Saint Ignatius Art Show was originally scheduled for 2021, but due to COVID-19, it will now be held in August 2022. To demonstrate our commitment to the arts and to support an arts community struck hard by the pandemic, the College will host a much reduced and different style of art show in 2021, while still planning for the 2022 art show. This year during SALA 2021, the Saint Ignatius Art Show will be in two parts:
Part 1 — Miniature Works Exhibition Titled ‘Through the Wrong End of the Telescope’, this exhibition will feature miniature sized art and will be exhibited in the Junior School at Norwood. If you are an artist interested in exhibiting, please take note of the miniature size restrictions (scroll down for more info). Register by filling in the online entry form here>
Part 2 — Art Show Satellite Exhibitions College family businesses were invited to host an artist’s works during SALA. Thank you to all the businesses who put their hands up to host an artist(s) this year. We have 4 locations around Norwood and Marryatville this year. (Scroll down for more info)
New in 2021 art show
Miniature Works Exhibition Titled
‘Through the Wrong End of the Telescope’
The art of the miniature is centuries old and this year the Saint Ignatius Art Show is proud to present a unique exhibition of miniature art with a diverse range of 2D and 3D miniature art in the forms such as paintings, sculptures, prints, ceramics and jewellery.
2021 was meant to be an “off year” for the biennial Saint Ignatius Art Show, but in the interests of supporting of the South Australian arts community, St Ignatius’ College decided to go ahead and host an exhibition this year anyway. While the traditional Saint Ignatius Art Show will still be held in 2022, this year the College is excited to present a diverse range of art in miniature form by South Australian artists. The exhibition will also include vibrant miniature Indigenous art works produced in the APY Lands capturing the dynamic and ever-evolving nature of the Kaltjiti Arts community.
The Miniatures Exhibition will be held each weekend in August 2021 starting on Saturday 7 August and concluding Sunday 29 August at Saint Ignatius’ College – Junior School, 62 Queen Street, Norwood.
