Artist Annabel Cisternino Celebrates Pulchrism at SALA Open Studio

Much thanks to Annabel Cisternino for sending me these photographs showing her art being exhibited at SALA Open Studio at The Cedars in Hahndorf, South Australia. As part of the exhibition, Annabel displayed The Pulchrist Manifesto and the slogan for Pulchrism: "Championing Beauty as the Purpose of Art". 

It is quite an honour to see that The Pulchrist Manifesto resonates with such a talented artist! Annabel messaged me that "The quote and manifesto created some good conversation with visitors!" It is wonderful to think that the manifesto - which advocates that Beauty should be the purpose of art - can inspire action and discussion which can lead to a new approach to art!

Annabel Cisternino is an Australian artist from Adelaide who creates beautiful oil paintings on canvas. Check out her work at
