Hairstylist Sam James exhibits for the first time at SALA Festival

with Local Contemporary Artist Heather Little.

In a unique SALA event, Hairstylist Sam James and Contemporary Artist Heather Little have come together to showcase a collection of stunning artworks ranging from AvantGarde Hair Art to Art on canvas.

Owner of Orbe North Adelaide, Sam James’ hair installations have graced national runways, magazine covers and won her numerous awards including Hair Expo’s Australian Visionary Award. Sam is the first Hairdresser to ever exhibit in SALA Festival’s 21year history.

The inspiration for the work that I produce for magazine editorials and competitions comes from many places – from art, to architecture to textures. It is very avant-garde, so I am really very proud to be able to exhibit it at SALA as an artform”.

Sharing the SALA exhibition space at Orbe North Adelaide Sam’s friend of 10 years and another very talented local artist Heather Little. Heather is a well-known Contemporary Artist who specialises in acrylics. Her work celebrates the natural world by creating her art through beauty, diversity, vibrant colours, textures and imagery. The use of vibrant colour teamed with rich textural tones

Both our works are colourful and feature interesting detail and texture, so they really complement each other wonderfully in the space. We’ve had lots of people dropping by the exhibition on a daily basis. In the first 4 days, I was thrilled to sell 3 paintings.” says Heather.

On display in the O’Connell St salon are 15 hair-art pieces and 10 Acrylic paintings.

This SALA exhibition runs for the month of August, 2018.
Location: ORBE Hair North Adelaide, 40 O’Connell St North Adelaide
