The PaintBox


The PaintBox, located in Hahndorf is comprised of an Arts Supply retail shop, a group of studios and a gallery. Our shop is staffed by a collective of independent self-employed artists who also teach in the studios and show work in the gallery. Our studios were opened in January 2019 and have become increasingly dominant within the organisation. We offer one funded residency and exhibition per year. At other times residencies are offered on a user paid basis, the fee being $100 per week which artists recoup by teaching students.
We work closely with The Hahndorf Academy ( and The Cedars ( and our current residency has been offered as a prize for The Adelaide Hills Landscape Art Prize
Residencies usually last for 8 weeks with an exhibition at the end of that period. We can not offer accommodation but we are closely linked to accommodation providers in the community.
