A RECORD crowd enjoyed the feast of art on display at this year’s King Valley Art Show, much to the delight of the dedicated team of volunteers behind the scenes who help bring it all together.

King Valley Art Show committee president Anita Laurence said around 1200 people visited the show over the Queen’s Birthday weekend including 200 at the gala opening, with around 50 works of art selling over the three days the show was open to the public.

“We are really happy and we’ve had lots of really positive feedback, with a previous judge who attended saying the standard of work entered had really improved over the years,” she said.

“The opening night was fantastic, and the catering provided by the Whitfield and District Primary School parents association was just so professional.

“We want to thank all our sponsors and the many local businesses that support us, because without their support, we wouldn’t have a show.

“They give the artists not only the opportunity to exhibit, but also to sell their work, which is really wonderful.”
