The Malvern Community Arts Council (MCAC) will kick off Darfield Artweek 2020 with its Opening Night gala on Friday, 9 October, 7pm at Darfield Recreation Centre. This year’s judge, Areta Wilkinson, will announce the winner of the $2000 Malvern Community Arts Council Premier Award. An array of additional awards, generously donated by local sponsors, will also be presented.


“We are thrilled at the level of sponsorship from local businesses and donations from individuals, especially following the financial challenges experienced by many people earlier this year”, Philip Baldwin, Chairperson of MCAC, said.

Darfield Artweek 2020 includes two exhibitions. The Darfield Rec Centre is showcasing over 330 works of art in a variety of media by over 165 artists from Selwyn,
