41st VICTOR HARBOR ART SHOW Not long now!!! The 2020 Victor Harbor Art Show is fast approaching and our ‘big white tent” will be going up on Warland Reserve in Victor Harbor on Thursday.

We have 540 artists displaying their artworks this year. Many for the first time. There are 1375 artworks to be shown in our new layout, including 47 sculptures. The Preview Event is proving very popular again this year and is filling up fast. However, we do still have a few tickets available to purchase online at

The Preview Event is on Friday 10th January 2020 from 4.30pm to 8.30pm. Tickets are $45 each which includes drinks and nibbles.  Sales will commence at approximately 6.15 pm.  

It then opens to the public from Saturday 11th January 2020 to Saturday 18th January 2020, daily from 9.30am to 8.30pm with a $8.00 entry fee.  TO ALL ARTISTS: Delivery day for your paintings is this coming Monday 6th January 2020 from 9am to 5pm. 

Parking is set aside for artists outside the Hotel Crown for delivering paintings for your convenience. Please be sure to firmly adhere or staple the correct label to the back top of each painting or the bottom of your sculpture and bring your delivery docket with you. The labels and delivery docket was emailed to artists on 10th December 2019.

I do hope those artists who have sent their paintings by courier or post have ensured they will arrive in time. We look forward to another fantastic art show. Good luck to all our artists for a very successful sales week. Best regards Tim Shierlaw – Chair 2020 Victor Harbor Art Show

Congratulations to John Mowling & the Team at LJ Hooker Victor Harbor on winning the naming rights to the 2020 Victor Harbor Art Show.

 The benefits of a show such as this are varied and many. Not only have raised over $1.5 million dollars for local, national and overseas projects, and we have given many artists the opportunity to display their talents and sell their work.
 The growing success of the Art Show can be attributed to the continuing support of our sponsors, volunteers, artists, The City of Victor Harbor and the local community. Such a large undertaking would not be possible without our sponsors.


The Art Show promotes local and interstate artists, allowing them the opportunity to display and sell their art work. Below is a small glimpse into the quality of work you can expect to see at this year’s show:
