A month of botanical inspired artworks
Pepper Arts Centre in Magill will hold a month of special events for the SALA Festival.
Gardens have long been a source of inspiration for art, Image by Out and About.
The theme will be "The Art of Gardens" because this year artists have been influenced by gardens and flowers in their work. Some artists have designed some unique and individual artworks made from metal, wood or recycled materials that can be added to your garden as decor pieces.
There will be ongoing exhibits and also every weekend for a month, some artist talks and special events as listed below.
Exhibition Grand Opening - Sunday 31st JULY from 2pm
Guest speaker artist, Irene Pierce, who lives in a beautiful garden in the Adelaide Hills called Tickle Tank, will open the exhibition for SALA and the month-long events. Other guests will include a felting artist and a jewellery artist, who will be giving demonstrations of their skills. A woodturning artist will be demonstrating and talking to visitors about his artisan craft. All artists will have items for sale. The afternoon will have a festive feel with Adelaide Jazz Trio playing some upbeat tunes. You can enjoy afternoon tea at the small cafe at the gallery and inspect the art works and crafts for sale in the shop.

In addition to the artists talks and demonstrations, there will be a large selection of community artists displaying their work on the Art in the Garden theme. So if you are not free on a Saturday, do go along on another day and view the exhibition in the gallery every day they are open. There is a great little coffee shop at the venue but it only has a few tables, so if you want a quiet visit to just see the artworks maybe visit during the weekdays.
Parking is very limited at the venue and you may need to walk from nearby side streets. If you have a someone with you with limited mobility, then drop them off near the front and drive off in search of a car park.
