Linhay Gallery in Auburn was awash with pink and grey on Saturday August 5 for the opening of the SALA exhibition.

Twenty-five local and Adelaide artists are exhibiting work that ranges in size from 1.5m x 2m  to a 10cm square acrylic painting by seven-year-old Bethany O’Leary from Watervale.

Award winning art quilter Julie Haddrick of Blackwood is exhibiting her quilt "Flight over Bunyeroo" which features a Pink Cockatoo and Wedgetailed Eagle. This quilt previously won in the Australian Quilt Show and was named Best in Show

Visitors joined in the fun of the occasion by dressing in galah colours and chatting to special guest George Galah (on loan from Leonie Moore) as well as each other.

Adults enjoyed a glass of Kilikanoon Grenache Rose while children (and adults) nibbled on pink-iced galah cupcakes.

Flight over Bunyeroo features 2 window framed birds atop St Marys peak, Wilpena Pound in South Australia. The landscape immediately behind is the Bunyeroo Valley which drains water from the area to Lake Torrens. The Wedgetailed eagle (Aquila audax) is an impressive bird and one of the biggest eagles in the world. THe Galah (Cacatua leadbeateri)  is one of approximately 55 cockatoos in Australia.

A glamorous galah created by Hellen Bakhoff and Glenys Brokenshire greets visitors at the entrance, welcoming everyone into a gallery filled with galahs in a wide variety of media.

The exhibition was formally opened by Mid North VAPAA President Neville Sloss.
