In 1989 Ron Brook set up painting sessions in Kapunda in conjunction with the opening of Kapunda Gallery. A few years later Ron relocated to a venue in Truro – hence the Truro Art Group-- where they get together to paint and draw every Wednesday. The group has exhibited in a number of galleries, both as a group and individually.
Maxine Donald started the morning art class in Kapunda in 2005, and with a considerable increase in the numbers attending, soon added an afternoon class. Some members of the group have exhibited in other galleries; as a group they have held three exhibitions in Kapunda.
