The first art show back in 1987 was a huge success, immediately becoming an annual event which developed into the acclaimed Day in the Country.

Initially, renowned artist David Perks and other popular Manning Artists, with the help of the community, exhibited their art work to raise money for the maintenance of Killabakh Hall.

It proved a great success and now celebrating its 30 Anniversary, Killabakh’s Day in the Country Art Show maintains its reputation for presenting an outstanding selection of regional art, showcasing a wide cross section of creative mediums.

The show this year has attracted a number of new exhibitors including Mary McEnallay, Fred Bullen, Kim Mclean and Di Stewart and welcomes back regulars Rod Spicer, Russell and Raechel Saunders, Peter Schouten and Judith Conning to name a few.

Overall it is expected there will be in excess of 60 art works from more than 20 artists.

Local craftsman Karl Andersson will be displaying a number of his beautiful handmade wooden pieces and Jo Ernst will once again be creating a unique memento of the day with her ‘on the spot’ portrait drawings.

Louise Thomas, art show coordinator is thrilled with the fabulous line up of works assembled for the 30th anniversary show.

“The art show is a wonderful one-off display of artistic diversity and I’m proud to be coordinating again this year,” Louise said.

Exhibitor Harold Le Jeune has generously donated an oil painting as first prizes in the art exhibition raffle.

Tickets will be available in the Schoolhouse Gallery on the day and will be drawn at 2.30pm on the day.

In addition to the art show there will be more than 60 stalls including:

  • Scarecrow competition
  • Delicious food
  • All day entertainment
  • Kid’s activities

A great day out is assured for all the family.

Killabakh’s 30th Anniversary Day in the Country will be held on Saturday September 2, 10am – 3pm.

Killabakh is located just 16km north of Wingham along Comboyne Road.

Entry is by gold coin donation which provides the visitor with a program and lucky raffle ticket.

All money raised on the day is used to maintain, enhance and administer facilities for the use of Killabakh residents and members of the wider community.
