The Mornington Art Show is one of the biggest and best on the Peninsula, and that high standard looks set to continue when the 47th annual show opens on Thursday, January 17, with more than 850 paintings on sale. Works by feature artists Kathy Van E and David Brayshaw will join art from Victoria and interstate, including quality glassware, and there will be a gallery of photographs for viewing and purchase.
Opening night will have a gala party atmosphere with a Rotary theme. Gourmet finger food will be served, refreshments will be available from the bar and live jazz music will punctuate the evening as the feature artists mingle with guests. The show will then be open from January 18-26 from 10am-5pm at the Mornington Peninsula Community Theatre, cnr Nepean Highway and Wilsons Rd.
Works are priced from a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, with all profits funding a range of Mornington Rotary Club projects. Opening night tickets are available at morningtonartshow.com.au or from Farrell’s Bookstore in Mornington.
