Your guide to SALA Festival 2020 on the Fleurieu Peninsula

More than 5500 artists state-wide are participating in the 2020 South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival, with many of those living in or exhibiting on the Fleurieu.

The festival, which runs throughout August, features artists from an amateur level to more established artists across a broad range of disciplines including painting, drawing, digital filmmaking, ceramics, textiles, sculpture, installation and more.

There are 65 exhibitions and events across the region, with many themes to explore.

"It's the perfect time to enjoy all that South Australia has to offer both regionally and locally by visiting the state via the SALA program," SALA Festival CEO Kate Moskwa said.

The Times has collated the local exhibitions and events across the region for a simple, easy-to-read guide.
