The West Coast is being lit up this week as Illuminart's 'Travelling Light' show reaches the region, as part of the SALA (South Australian Living Artists) Festival.

Having toured other parts of Eyre Peninsula, the light show visited Elliston on Tuesday night and will be in Ceduna tonight, before heading to Streaky Bay on Friday.

The show projects images of early South Australia and a look at coastal life on Eyre Peninsula.

Illuminart's artistic director Cindi Drennan said they were looking forward to the show at the Thevenard silos.

"The creative stories depicting South Australia's heritage in a joyful way, are all about appreciating the beautiful and interesting place you live in," she said.

"Our tour is helping to bring some warmth and happiness to people in winter time everywhere it goes.

"We are very fortunate to be able to bring this project out to Ceduna during SALA and will be looking forward to sharing this celebration of arts and culture with everyone."

The Ceduna show starts at 6pm with speeches, before the projection art commences at 6.30pm.

Please bring chairs and mats for children to sit on.

Should the weather not be favourable, the backup plan is to have the show at the Ceduna Memorial Hall.

Streaky Bay's evening also starts at 6pm, with the light show from 6.30pm at the Streaky Bay Institute.

The events are free to attend.
