42nd Victor Harbor Art Show

The 42nd Award winning Victor Harbor Art Show held on Warland Reserve (adjacent to the Causeway) in Victor Harbor is now closed. We had a very successful show with highest sales since 2011.

We would like to thank the artists for giving us a huge selection of quality artwork for us to display, to the 5,500 customers who came through the door, the buyers for using their hard earned cash to buy art in these difficult times and to the volunteers who put in 1,500 hours to make this show happen. 

Congratulations to Irod Adill who won the 2021 Victor Harbor Art Prize with her fine work of

In the Rose Garden - Leonardo Da Vinci.
