Featured Artist: Sally Heinrich

Sally has illustrated more than 30 books for young readers. Her most recent picture book, One Step at a Time (written by Jane Jolly), won an honour in the 2016 CBCA Book of the Year awards. Their new collaboration, Papa Sky, will be released in October.

Sally’s commissioned artwork ranges in scale from wine labels through to a mural for the Singapore Zoo. Her work has been recognised through fellowships from Asialink, Arts SA and others. Her original pieces have been widely exhibited in Australia and Asia and are held in collections around the world.


Kaltjiti Arts

Saint Ignatius Art Show is thrilled to partner with Kaltjiti Arts, an Aboriginal art centre in the remote community of Fregon in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands of South Australia.

The art centre is the heart and cultural focal point of the small community, serving as place of inspiration and creativity. Through their artwork, Indigenous elder artists teach the younger generations about cultural traditions and stories, passing on knowledge which in turn was passed down through their ancestors. The art works are beautiful, varied and imbued with narrative.
