The Kapunda Community Gallery was opened in 1989. The Community Gallery hosts eight exhibitions each year, including traveling exhibitions made available by Country Arts South Australia and collections of works by regional and local artists. There are two major annual events - the Summer Open Art Exhibition/Competition for which Judges' Prizes, People's Prizes and Commendations are awarded and the annual August South Australian Living Artists Festival exhibition, the concept of which varies each year.
In addition, in November each year, the gallery is host to works by Kapunda High and Primary Schools, including Year 11 and 12 students as part of the Moderation process by South Australian Education Department examiners.
The Gallery has associated painting and drawing groups, which meet regularly and hold occasional exhibitions of members' work.
