About WestArt

WestArt formed in Feb 2004 to hold the Eyreheads Portrait Prize. The group established a local community arts group with the intention of promoting local art and ‘Arts’ in Ceduna.

WestArt aims to encourage and inspire existing and emerging artists in Eyre Peninsula and the Far West.

WestArt / Ceduna Oysterfest Art Exhibition is open for artists who reside on the Eyre Peninsula, and is always well patronised by the EP arts community.

The 2018 Exhibition features a Youth Prize and a Photographic Prize.

Oysterfest Art Exhibition 2018 is a non acquisitive art prize.
