SALA Festival

Exhibitions from 1 August - 12 September 2022

The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is a state wide festival of visual art. The SALA Festival was established in 1998 to promote and celebrate the many talented visual artists in South Australia. The aim is to extend visual arts audiences. The SALA Festival have continued a policy of inclusiveness allowing all South Australian visual artists of any level and working in any medium to be part of our annual SALA Festival every August.

Salisbury celebrates SALA by showcasing local artists in venues within the City of Salisbury. We are proud to support and promote emerging and professional artists living in the City of Salisbury through payment of their SALA 2022 registration.

Below are the exhibitions that the City of Salisbury will be hosting as part of the 2022 SALA Festival.

"Mirror" by J. Mones Art

  • Salisbury Community Hub – John Harvey Community Hall
  • 34 Church Street, Salisbury
  • Exhibition dates: 1 August to 12 September

Jahangir Amin, also known as "J. Mones" is a visual artist from Afghanistan, who lived and studied in Austria for a long time before coming to Australia. Jahangir held several painting exhibitions in Austria, Bulgaria and Poland. His main focus is on women's situations in the world and specifically in Afghanistan.

Jahangir's exhibition in the SALA Festival is called "Mirror" as his works (paintings and photos) are reflecting the beauty and sadness of the world.

Emerging Artist Lyn Davis presents her unique perspective with her own visual language equating feelings with the vibrancy of colour with distinctive line work to express what we all find so intangible at times with the deepest desire to be seen and the longing to be heard.
