SALA Art Exhibition in Willunga
Through photography, painting, printmaking and books the three members of the Pisa Collective draw stories and meaning from common unnoticed things. Nadia Caon, Helen Sherriff, Nina Bosco are the three artists known as the Pisa Collective. Their name was chosen at the time of their first exhibition in a café called The Pisa Café. Two of the artists are Italian. Helen describes the trio as 'fresh local Adelaide artists'.
The exhibition is at Bethany Hall, an ideal location for artists with modern gallery lighting, high ceilings and the character charm of a heritage building. Opening day is Sunday 7th August from 3.00 – 5.00pm. The exhibition will be opened by Liz French, a local artist and printmaker. Liz continues to inspire younger artists with her creativity and vitality by continuing to exhibit art works in SALA exhibitions into her 90's. The gallery will be open throughout August on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30am to 12.30pm. You can also pop in on Saturdays and Sundays from 1.00pm – 4.00pm. Admission is free.

Willunga is a beautiful town of heritage architecture, paved walking trails and lovingly maintained gardens. After visiting the Pisa Collective, why not stroll past some of the historic buildings that date back to the1850's, walk or cycle the Shiraz Trail, go on a food walk and choose one of the gorgeous character cafés for lunch. Every Saturday morning Willunga is a hive of activity centring around the Farmers' Markets and on the second Saturday of the month, the Quarry Market and Artisans Market are also fun to browse.
