2020 Kangaroo Island Art Exhibition – Easter postponed

Exhibition and Shows

26 Sep 2020 to 11 Oct 2020

The KI 2020 Art Exhibition is the largest, most diverse art show on an island which arguably hosts more artists and exhibitions per head of population than elsewhere in the state.

This outstanding display is a highlight of the island’s event calendar and in 2020 due to this summer’s bushfires has been re-scheduled to the SA September school holidays.

In its 33rd year it is supported with judges from the Art Gallery of SA and Guildhouse. On the Edge is the major themed open-category and over $10,000 in prizes will be offered for current works 2D, 3D and photography.

Spanning all generations of artists including the island’s young people, the exhibition offers diverse encounters with contemporary art practices. 300+ individual exhibits will be on show traversing mediums such as painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, photography and jewellery.

This eagerly anticipated exhibition is an exciting opportunity to see the creative outpourings, ambitious new ideas from emerging talent and the island’s established artists. And of course it is your chance to take home a unique memento of Kangaroo Island.

Celebrate with our artists at the official opening and presentation night, 6:30 pm Saturday 26 September 2020.

Meet the judges 10:30 Saturday 27 September.
