The South Australian Living Artist Publication grant supports the production of a major, high-quality book profiling an established South Australian visual artist with a significant track record of achievement in their area of practice. The publication is designed to position the South Australian visual art, craft and design practitioner in a national and/or international context.

The book is developed and published in conjunction with the Board of the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival and Wakefield Press.

Ceramicist, Kirsten Coelho (work pictured above), is the feature artist for the 2020 publication. The launch of the publication at the opening of the 2020 SALA Festival will coincide with Kirsten’s upcoming solo exhibition at the Scottish Gallery (Edinburgh, UK).

Past recipients

Past subjects of the South Australian Living Artist Publication include Christopher Orchard, Catherine Truman, Nicholas Folland, Clare Belfrage and Hossein Valamanesh.
