Our popular Henley Jetty has become a walking art gallery, as Art on the Jetty comes to Adelaide.

Art on the Jetty had its genesis in 2021 in Victoria as the culmination of the Queenscliff Art Prize and has grown to be the biggest exhibition of its kind in Australia with an annual exhibition on the Queenscliff Pier (yes, they call it a pier over there).

Now the organisers are spreading their arty wings to South Australia and Western Australia, with similar exhibitions on the Henley and Busselton Jetties.

From July to September, a variety of art and photography pieces – 65 in total,  will be attached to the handrails of the Henley Jetty. Each featured work has been carefully rendered onto a specialised aluminium exhibition panel to protect it from the weather and ensure great viewing. Details of each artist will be available via the associated web site –

This time there are  only a few South Australian artists featured – the majority of work for the initial exhibition will be from interstate. However, local artists will get an opportunity to be featured in the future.  “This is a forerunner to a planned major exhibition next February”, said organiser Chris Mcleod “when we’ll be calling for South Australian artists to submit work for the exhibition.”

No doubt there will be many local artists keen to see their work on display on Henley Jetty in the future. Local artists Samantha Tipler and Rachel Ross have said they will definitely be putting their brushes up to be included in February. “I am lucky enough to have a piece in the Busselton Jetty exhibition and would love to see my work on Henley Jetty” said Samantha “along with SALA in Henley Beach it’s a wonderful opportunity for artists” . Rachel, whose work is regularly on display at local cafe Coco Cacao, often features Henley Jetty itself in her art, concurred. “Love the sound of this”.

“We’re thrilled to have this innovative exhibition at Henley”, said Henley SALA Coordinator Helen Lewis. “It comes just before “Art by the Sea”, our South Australian Living Artists Festival event in August when many of our restaurants, cafes and businesses will feature exhibitions by local artists. “Definitely an added reason to visit Henley Beach in Winter.”

So, beanies on, coffee in hand, it’s time for an arty stroll on Henley Jetty. And can we say, the Winter sunsets are just magnificent.
