Sala 2015

August 03, 2015 0 comments

We are once again a proud supporter of the South Australian Living Artist Festival (SALA), hosting two exhibitions between 1 August to 30 August.

Ruth Gregor an emerging sculptor from Venus Bay in the Eyre Peninsula will carve out a beautiful 1.8m high sculptural piece made of marble in our Weeping Rose Garden. Members of the public are welcome to come and watch as she creates her one off piece of art over the month of August. Titled The Cycle of life the sculpture will symbolise the ‘cycle of life’ through a series of carvings depicting natural elements such as eucalyptus leaves, flowers, empty gumnuts and a single flame.

Each element represents the themes of life including the stages and continuity of life, celebration and joy of life, and memory and remembrance of life.
