We’re at the venue unwrapping all the amazing art and it’s like Christmas!  After our Covid hiatus last year, this show is in hot demand – and you won’t be disappointed.  The artists have been putting all the finishing touches on their artworks, and it’s been so exciting to see their art all packaged up and on its way to us.  

Keep on reading for what you can expect at the sold-out Gala Evening this Thursday night.   Those who are coming can look forward to good food, wine, beer and music – and of course all of the ART.   

Keep reading even further for the link to a map illustrating the Queen’s Birthday Weekend Jervois Quay road closures, and where to park when you visit the show.  

All show day tickets are available at the door.  We’ll be open daily from 10am – 6:30pm, Friday 4th to Sunday 6th June.  There’s a cafe on-site so you can grab a coffee or snack when you arrive too.
