This year, the quaint township of Karoonda is lighting up its silos in its first ever SALA (SA Living Artists) Festival event.
From 5:30pm to 10pm each night in August, colourful artwork will illuminate the silos in a large-scale outdoor exhibition.
Each artist chosen to have their work projected on the silos is South Australian, including 13-year-old Serenity McKenzie, painter David Kerr and Emmaleise Maxwell, who all hail from Karoonda.
The other SA artists include Ashley Thiele (digital, painting, drawing), Susan Thrun-Willett (photography), Susan Belperio (photography), Sally Grundy (photography), Deborah Farrimond (pastel, charcoal), Debbie Seater (paper mosaic), Vanessa Size (photography), Grant Petras (photography), Mary McQuay (painting), and Lyn Anstey (painting).
District Council of Karoonda East Murray Mayor Caroline Phillips said she believed the exhibition will bring new visitors to the town.
“Participating in this year’s SALA Festival will raise the profile of Karoonda and our silo artwork across South Australia,” said Caroline.
SALA at the Silos will culminate in a special celebration – SALA in the Park – at Pioneer Park from 6pm to 8pm on the 27th August.
Tickets for the celebration can be purchased online here.
You can find the Karoonda silos at 11 Railway Terrace, Karoonda.
