The pandemic and border closures have made us feel boxed in for the last two years, but for most of us, it has taught a valuable lesson… to appreciate where we live.

So for this year’s exhibition, “Australiana” has been chosen as the theme and we are inviting all SSAC members to create works that celebrate the beautiful country in which we live. But this is not restricted to place, these works can also be a celebration of the people that we share this wide brown land with.

I urge you all to step out of your comfort zone and try something new- anything is possible! Your work could be a group installation, an outdoor sculpture, or a quirky take on the theme.

Pieces entered into this exhibition will need to have been made in the 2 years prior to the exhibition in October 2022 and have not been previously exhibited at SSAC.

Entries close Friday 16th September 2022.
