2019 Art Show Committee
An official sala event

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL 2019 SELECTED ARTISTS
The final list of artists has now been selected for the Saint Ignatius 2019 Art Show. This year there is a great mix of painters, sculptors and aboriginal artists. We are also happy to include our emerging artist and printmakers who are going to have their dedicated spaces to show their art. Opening night tickets are now available through TryBooking.

Its continued success and quality has seen the Art Show become part of the state-wide South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival and has been a biennial feature since 2009. The SALA Festival aims to promote and celebrate the many talented visual artists in South Australia…

Artists not showing for 2019 are also encouraged to participate.
‘Calling all SA Printmakers’
2019 Featured Artist
My artwork is focused on perceptual intent. Personally, the most important elements in my work are optical determination and overall impression. I am intensely passionate in regard to experimenting with contemporary materials in diverse geometrical forms, incorporating mutable lighting to produce colour and movement. Configuring in manifold ways to create an enhanced perspective has always fascinated and challenged me. Ultimately, my aim is to engender an aesthetic effect that is truly unique. I admire art for its creativity and perfection and desire that the observers of my art find these qualities in my concepts.
