Nearly 300 people passed through the doors of All Souls’ Church in St Peters to view the first SALA (South Australian Living Artists) exhibition mounted in the church entitled Art and Soul at All Souls.
Seven talented artists participated in the exhibition that spanned two weeks in mid- August and sold close to $3,000 worth of creative works.
The exhibition was made possible by a Community Grant from the Norwood Payneham St Peters Council.
The convener of the exhibition, Sue Crees said: “We are very pleased with the success of our first exhibition. It has shown that events such as this encourage people to visit churches for reasons other than worship. In this relaxed atmosphere, people can have conversations that offer opportunities for faith-sharing.
“We have learned many helpful lessons that will enable us to make our next effort even better and we look forward to SALA 2023.”
