Kapunda has many talented artists, several of whom will be celebrated in this year's SALA exhibition, “Postcode 5373”, at Kapunda Community Gallery Inc. The artists represented
all live in or near Kapunda. Many of them have settled here over the last few years, having come from interstate and other parts of South Australia: Jane Alcorn, Jenny Bastians, Malcolm Craig, Maxine Donald, Jeni Herde, Stuart Hoerisch, Carmine Lake, B.J. Moore, Ken Lyons and Naughty Dog Designs.
“ Postcode 5373” is an interpretation of the area by each artist. Past and present. rural and town, interiors, people, children and animals are portrayed in watercolour, oil, acrylic and photography, with metal sculptures by Malcolm Craig and Ben Lewis, and innovative furniture made by Naughty Dog Designs from reclaimed and recycled materials. Carmine Lake's beautiful hand made costumes, in the styles of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century clothing, are an exciting addition to the historic aspects of the exhibition.
The curator is Maxine Donald. Local historian Paul McCarthy will open the exhibition on Sunday July 31st at 2:00pm
