Hampton Art Exhibition
The Hampton Festival provides an outlet for the work of both professional and up and coming visual, performance, vocal and craft artists through the Hampton Art Exhibition. The festival is committed to fostering further development of the arts in the local community.
The Hampton Art Exhibition is an important way to foster local talent and has run concurrently with the Festival for 17 years. It continues to offer a wonderful opportunity for prominent and emerging artists living within a 50km radius of Hampton to present their work to an audience of thousands.
