Art & Craft
Local Whyalla crafters and artists love to share their work. Opportunities to meet and watch the artists in residence are presented in the Tanderra Craft Village and at the Darling Terrace Gallery.
Marvel at the talents of Whyalla resident artists highlighting scenes and colours of the region through many mediums. Art works are sold locally and exhibited in seasonal art shows and competitions.
'The Whyalla Art Prize is a biennial prize open to all Australian residents for 2 dimensional artwork in any medium other than photography and for the first time in 2015 moving image works.
In 1972, the Whyalla Art Prize was established by the Whyalla Arts Council. Originally designed to promote regional emerging artists, the prize has flourished and developed into a significant award and is seen as an important exhibition of contemporary arts in Australia.
Discovering new talents, invigorating artistic passions while supporting our national artists has seen the Whyalla community acquire an impressive and notable collection of artworks in iconic styles that reflect the spirit and the changing face of Australia': Source Country Arts SA.
