“Celebrating Kapunda” is the theme of an exhibition open to all artists to show work depicting the town and surrounding area. For an artist, Kapunda has many appealing aspects, the effects of the seasons on the landscape and crops throughout the year, wonderful skies and many attractive old buildings.
Bridges, buildings and structures relating to agriculture and local industry make very interesting subjects. In every town an artist can find many scenes reflecting the character of the town and the people living in it. With an interesting history of mining, agriculture, livestock, milling and industry, and having once been a major rail link, Kapunda has a wealth of material for the imagination.
Anne Hornsey will open the exhibition and the artist Gerhardt Ritter will judge the works. Three prizes will be awarded. The prize for best oil painting is annually donated by Dulcie Fitzpatrick, in memory of her late husband, the artist Bruce Fitzpatrick.
