Current Exhibitions

SALA Exhibtion - Inside/Outside

30 July - 29 August 2021

Our SALA exhibition ‘Inside/Outside’ features the work of 19 South Australian artists, working across the mediums of painting, printmaking, glass and ceramics. Celebrating our interior and exterior worlds, this exhibition considers the objects and spaces with which we live our daily lives. As a result of the pandemic, we now have less opportunities to travel, translating into a focus on aesthetics both in the garden and the home. It is when we re-emerge into the outside world from the restrictions of a lockdown, that we view our own spaces in a new light and wonder how we ever took them for granted. 

Featured artists: Dora Dallwitz, Ashlee Hopkins, Elisabeth Howlett, Pia Hutchings, Mark Judd, Billie Justice Thomson (artwork pictured), Eliza Koch, Linda Lee, Joy Levins, Christine McCarthy, Megan O'Hara, Eliza Piro, Todd Romanowycz, Tim Shaw, Gishka Van Ree, Mary Wagstaff, Mark Warren, Elizabeth Wojciak, Emma Young.

Previous Exhibitions

Diana Wiseman - Exploration and Memory

25 June - 25 July 2021

Diana is not a realist painter. She works intuitively using colour, mark making, space and texture to create an image of landscape for the viewer. While images are arrived at spontaneously, a love of the natural and rural landscape guides the process.  Diana begins a painting with a large house brush and free mark making. Then the picture goes its own way, with wiping out, adding and taking out, drips and scrapes, rotating the canvas and simplifying areas. 

We will also be featuring ceramic sculptures by Sonya Moyle in this exhibition.

Author Angela Goode will be the guest speaker at the opening of this exhibition on Friday 25 June 6-8pm. 

Ben Tankard - Cover Versions

25 June - 25 July 2021

Ben Tankard’s ‘Unpopular Penguin’ series sprang from a love of books and painting. His two initial inspirations were working in a book shop, and the ‘Flag’ paintings of 20th century American artist Jasper Johns, who took an everyday image and transformed it into abstract art.

Ben’s paintings take classic book covers and reinterpret them, with richly textured surfaces, drips and spatters, multiple layers of paint and expressive brushwork. These paintings have been included in numerous art prizes and shows since the series began in 2015. 

We will also be featuring glass work by Ayano Yoshizumi in this exhibition.

The Leunig Show

This exhibition showcases new original paintings, etchings and inkjet prints by renowned Australian artist and cartoonist Michael Leunig. 

Leunig's commentary on political, cultural and emotional life spans more than 50 years, with his notable cartoons still appearing regularly in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald. His work explores the fragile ecosystem of human nature and its relationship to the wider world.

Leunig describes his approach as regressive, humorous, messy, mystical, primal and vaudevillian - producing work which is open to many interpretations and has been widely adapted in education, music, theatre, psychotherapy and spiritual life.

Leo Greenfield - The Parade

12 March - 11 April 2021

Leo Greenfield is a Sydney-based artist whose work centres on illustrating “everyday people, drawn from memory” and stems from his fascination with observing the way in which people choose to present themselves. Likening himself to a journalist, Leo makes studies of and observes these characters in their day to day lives. Recording the date and location of where these studies were made, Leo’s illustrations become snapshots in time.

In his first solo exhibition with Art Images Gallery, Leo will showcase an archive of work created during his time living in various cities around Australia as well as in London and Paris.
