AFT is coming back bigger, better and more exciting in 2022!

Due to our reduced capacity caused by the fire in Nov 2020, we have reluctantly decided to postpone our Art From Trash for 2021 and put our energy into a fresh look in 2022. Keep an eye out for an announcement on our website and social media about this exciting event soon.

We look forward to bringing you more creative, zany, beautiful and fantastical art works made made by artists, creatives, young people and old, using waste destined for landfill. Why not start thinking now about what you might like to submit?

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.
