Unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 situation and health controls handed down by governments, the 2020 YP Art Exhibition will no longer be held this Easter, but is being postponed / rescheduled to Easter 2021.
It is an unprecedented situation and the decision to postpone has not been made lightly, but made in the interest of our community and artists.
On behalf of the Working Party, we apologise for the inconvenience and would like to acknowledge all the work put in by all the members involved.
For further information, please call Council on 08 8832 0000 or email email@example.com
The Council and the Yorke Peninsula Art Exhibition Working Party, is very proud to present its 11th regionally inspired art exhibition.
In 2020, a diverse art programme will be held at three key sites – Ardrossan (Fine Art / Painting) Edithburgh (Sculpture) and Yorketown (Photography) and a number of smaller Art Trail venues across the beautiful Yorke Peninsula over the Easter Long Weekend holiday break.
FRIDAY, 10 APRIL TO MONDAY, 13 APRIL
Through art and creativity, Council is committed to attracting visitors to rural areas and less visited attractions and locations as we continue to promote our area as a desirable holiday destination – less than two hours from Adelaide. The Working Party recognises that artists and business entrepreneurs make an important contribution to Australian society, the economy and assist in driving tourism by providing creative approaches to regional development.
The YP Art Exhibition has won two SA Great Regional Awards for Art in 2006 and 2008, an Advantage SA Award in 2010 and were admitted into the Hall of Fame in 2010 for recognition of “outstanding achievements and significant contributions demonstrating excellence in regional leadership”.
Our diverse exhibition program and support continues to grow, and includes strong involvement from local schools and students, as well as attracting well-known and new artists across the region and the state.
The Exhibition Opening (preview) Night will be held in Ardrossan on the evening of Wednesday 8 April 2020 with the Exhibition open to everyone from Friday 10 April until Monday 13 April 2020.
