Adelaide Arcade SALA experience
Adelaide Arcade has always been a very beautiful place to explore. Now with SALA (South Australian Living Artists) in full swing, it has many more reasons to wander through.

These beautiful mannequins are by artist Debbie Daw and can be found on the ground floor as you enter from the Mall end. They are part of an exhibition titled M.I.A #Mannequin Identity Art.

Also on the ground floor are some photos by Rodney Magazinovic, these are of various rock concerts, including the Rolling Stones.

Further along we find "Sundry Sprites" by Alison Main, a collection of small sculptured people and animals.

Upstairs is a whole different world with many other exhibitors to view. Among them is Ross Morgan with The Diver, the Chicken and The Fox. A surreal exhibition which is simply a must see.

This exhibition explores the adventures of these three characters

While on the balcony level, I visited Anthea Wright's exhibition; Drawn to the Light in Two-Bit Villains cafe. Her work is stunning.

There is so much more in Adelaide Arcade - it is a hive of activity. Zu Design is worth a look, as well as Andrew Birchoff's studio studies in Shop 22.
