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.
