Escape to Everywhere

August is SALA time – an eagerly awaited time of the year, with a feast of exhibitions.

August also means Children’s Book Week and this year, at Mrs Harris’ Shop, we decided to celebrate this wonderful event with a SALA exhibition of six talented South Australian children’s book illustrators.

Andrew Joyner’s latest ‘The Pink Hat’

Escape to everywhere (this year’s theme for Children’s Book Week) has been coordinated by artist Sally Heinrich, and features Sally, Donna Gynell, Jennifer Harrison, Andrew Joyner, David Kennett and Tim Ide and illustrations from, their latest works.

These talented and experienced artists, via their latest illustrations, have created a beautiful exhibition – one that makes you want to escape to wherever it wants to take you!
