Art from Trash

Art from Trash 2020

It is with a heavy heart we must announce the postponement of 2020’s Art from Trash.

After many discussions about Art from Trash and based on the advice we have been given from medical professionals and the government, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Art from Trash 2020.

As you can appreciate this decision was not made lightly however, we feel it’s the most appropriate response to current events.

We hope this is a temporary situation and we will be able to stage AFT 2020 later in the year.  We encourage you to continue working on your pieces and keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.

Thanks for your understanding.


The team from Art from Trash



Art From Trash is an annual exhibition that encourages the reuse of discarded materials in the production of amazing visual art.

Established in 1993, the ART FROM TRASH exhibition has become an iconic and much loved exposé of creativity. Attracting over 120 artists and 5000 visitors annually, this event has proved itself as a powerful and much needed change agent for a better future. 

Makers of all ages, styles and stages, from emerging talent to established practitioners, schools and community groups exhibit alongside each other in an exhibition of increasingly accomplished and thought-provoking works of art. 

Held in the historic precinct of Salamanca in the Salamanca Arts Centre's Long Gallery, this exhibition is for everyone.
