MCCSA hosted our third SALA Art exhibition featuring Malaysian born mother and daughter Sorayya and Haneen Martin on 8th of August 2017 at our Hall on 113 Gilbert Street Adelaide.

The ‘HERE AND NOW’ exhibition looks back upon tradition and textiles from their Malay background as a means to articulating contemporary ideas.

During the opening night Sorraya, talked about how preserving traditional Malay art has helped her and her daughter maintain the special relationship they have with their cultural background.

It was a well-attended event, and MCCSA programs coordinator Megan Hill thanked Sorayya and Haneen for sharing their art.  “Hosting SALA for the past 3 years has allowed MCCSA to develop new relationships with local artists, and we love having the opportunity to share their work and their stories with our communities”.
