It was a galah of a gala day in Auburn

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

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 some delicious pink-iced galah cupcakes for the opening.

                                                                                                                                                 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.

Twenty-five local and Adelaide artists are exhibiting work that ranges in size from a two-metre award winning art quilt by Julie Haddrick of Blackwood, to a 10-centimetre square acrylic painting by seven-year-old Bethany O’Leary, who comes from Watervale.

The exhibition was formally opened by Mid North Visual and Performing Arts Association president Neville Sloss.

The Galah Gala is open to the public at Linhay Gallery from Friday to Monday, 10am to 4pm, until August 28.
