what's on 


1st August - 31st August


Art Over Apathy: Kat Coppock:
Paper Trail Exhibition
1st - 31st August Tues - Sat 10am - 1pm


An ephemeral paper-trail winds through emotion, fantasy, and reflection in a time of social collapse. In "Paper Trail" Kat Coppock continues works in mixed media to explore interior responses to external forces. Through the fragile yet adaptable medium of paper, inner dialogues inspired by climate change, politics, heart break, and balance in a world of chaos are given form and symbolism, leaving a paper-trail of personal experiences.
Outside of listed opening hours, the exhibition can be viewed when performances are on – checkout link for more details.


"Paper Trail" by Kat Coppock & "Treebark portraits, landscapes, and seascapes" by Patrick Pearson
28th August 7pm

Come celebrate the closing of SALA and the end of our exhibitions with us at The Goodwood Theatre and Studios! Complimentary champagne on arrival, snacks, and a chance to buy work from the artists in person.

Patrick paints vibrant and almost abstract 'portraits' in oils inspired by the bark of individual trees here in Adelaide and around the world, which on closer inspection hint at animal, bird, fish, human or spirit forms hiding in plain sight. The crisis of wild species' extinction and the loss of wild beauty informs all of his work, including his palette knife landscapes and seascapes.

If you can't make it to the party, regular viewing times and dates can be found here;


Thanks to SALA Festival, The City of Unley, and Goodwood Theatre and Studios.
