The seventh biennial Kidman Art Show ran from Friday 25th until Wednesday 30th October 2019. The main venue was the Soldiers’ Memorial Hall in Hill Street with the Photographic Exhibition in the Kapunda Community Gallery at the corner of Main and Brown Streets.
The Art Show was again supported by the Light Regional Council and we are also very appreciative of a number of other generous sponsors.
The Kapunda Community Gallery again provided their valuable support and expertise, including staging the Photographic Exhibition in conjunction with the Kidman Art Show.
The Kidman Art Show provides an opportunity for regional artists to compete for generous prizes and to display their work for sale. All proceeds from the Art Show go towards local and international Rotary humanitarian projects.
