King Valley Arts

King Valley Arts

We have changed our name to King Valley Arts to better reflect the many activities the committee is involved in. This decision was made at our AGM in October.
Our main activity is still the King Valley Art Show which is held annually on the Queen’s Birthday Weekend in June at King River Brewing.  With the committee working towards another great art show, the only change you will see is a new logo. 

We are also excited to announce that we have received a Creative Victoria Small Regional Presenters grant for our King Valley Arts Presents which brings performances from Regional Arts Victoria’s Connecting Places 2019 program to Moyhu, Whitfield and Myrrhee . Working with local community groups in each town we will be presenting four diverse performances that will pique the interest of all from the young to the young at heart.
