About the SALA Festival
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. Our aim to extend audiences, remains a cornerstone of the Festival, and as an umbrella organisation we have continued a policy of inclusiveness allowing all artists at any level and working in any medium to be part of our annual SALA Festivals every August.
'....we are all individuals seeing the world from our own unique perspective, never able to see what another person sees, to know what they know, or to feel what they feel. Our experience of things must therefore always be partial and incomplete. Empathy is the recognition of that limitation, the knowledge that there are perspectives apart from our own. Empathy is the desire to see from these other perspectives, to look through another person's eyes; it is an acknowledgement of the broken whole and the need for healing.'
Richard Wilson RA, quoting Edith Stein, 'On the Problem of Empathy ' (1916)

Patterns of Landscape
The works in this Exhibition focussed on specific aspects of landscape as observed by Sally Parnis and tested first as drawings on the iPad. Additional works by Stephanie Crase and Tricia Ross showed the play of light on natural and manmade forms in the landscape.
