The Rotary Club of Ocean Grove is calling for entries for its seventh annual art show.
Art show curator Coral Barker is looking forward to the event saying.
“The show attracts many top local and interstate artists,” she said.
“We have three categories – painting, drawing and print making with prizes in excess of $9000 on offer.”
This year the show will once again be part of the Bellarine Arts Trail which has been extended to take in galleries in Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff.
“Professional noted Geelong artists are impressed with the way the show is managed and hung – there is always expert help on hand to assist with artists profile, techniques and mediums,” Coral said.
Multi award winner Dennis Sonogan started painting seriously when he retired eight years ago.
“I’m impressed with the professional way Rotary Ocean Grove runs their art show,” he said.
“The standard of work is much higher than average and I like the fact that all proceeds go to two excellent local charities. I enjoy being part of it. Rotary Ocean Grove’s art show has a good following, I find it is a good place to display and sell my work.”
Artworks are sought in the following categories – painting, drawing and print making.
Entries close Friday 29 September. The art show will to be held at Point Lonsdale Primary School Hall from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 November (Melbourne Cup weekend).
