Visual Arts in the Valley 2020 Prize Winners


Visual Arts in the Valley 2020 has closed for another year. Held biennially over the October long-weekend, in 2020 it featured 8 events at 5 venues over 4 days.

In early 2020, the unprecedented 74-day Currowan bushfire smashed the southern flank of Kangaroo Valley, followed by torrential floods. Then Covid-19 hit local businesses.

The community united and rebounded, a part of which was Visual Arts in the Valley 2020, a celebration of the visual arts and now one of the richer prizes in Australian art. 1,300 people visited the Kangaroo Valley Community Hall transformed into a professional gallery and four other venues in the Valley.

Below are links to Visual Arts in the Valley 2020 Prize Winners and Finalists.

Our intention is for Visual Arts in the Valley to continue to emerge as a major national arts event while retaining local and regional flavour.
