Officially opened on Sunday 31st July by Gawler Artist and Cartoonist George Aldridge, the exhibition celebrates the local personalities that have contributed to local politics since the Light Electorate was first created in 1857.

This year's Trail features 11 exhibitions displaying the works of a host of local artists, including Barbara Palmer, Scott Rathman, Sharon Sinclair and Judy Ferguson to name just a few.
