Arts show bigger, better

BCH CEO Shane Dawson and Ocean Grove Rotary Club president Marion Walton.

This year’s Rotary art show has a new major sponsor.

Bellarine Community Health has jumped on board to support the annual event, which is now in its ninth year.

The art show will showcase a huge array of local, regional and interstate artists across several categories including painting, drawing, printmaking, flora and fauna and abstract/semi abstract.

“We’re really thrilled to be involved with the Ocean Grove Rotary Club and the art show,” BCH CEO Shane Dawson said.

“We support a lot of community-based activities that benefit the health and wellbeing of communities on the Bellarine and art can be very therapeutic in people’s lives. Funds raised from the event also go to charities that provide opportunities to enhance wellbeing for people in need.”

More than $10,000 is available in prizes, with organisers expecting an even bigger turnout of artists on previous years.

The Rotary Art Show is run over the Melbourne Cup long weekend from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 November at Point Lonsdale Primary School function centre.
