The annual Weston Art Show commenced in 1964 and established itself as an important social and cultural event for the Hunter Valley.

After 50 years of managing the Art Show, the Anglican Parish of Mt. Vincent and Weston handed over the management role to Towns With Heart Inc.

In 2017 the Art Show was renamed the “Town of Murals Art Show” and is now held annually in Spring in Kurri Kurri.
