The Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron Easter Art Show is back and celebrating its 10th year. Always a highlight on the Peninsula calendar, the show is proudly sponsored by hockingstuart Blairgowrie and raises money for the BYS rescue boat fleet.
The show has gone from strength to strength since it began in 2009, with artists from Melbourne and the Mornington and Bellarine peninsulas invited to have their works exhibited and for sale at the yacht club. Feature artists exhibiting this year are It Hao Pheh, Maureen Kirsch and Lawrence Marshall, along with returning and new artists, in mediums ranging from painting and photography to indoor and outdoor sculpture. Outdoor sculptures take pride of place on the deck and lawn, adding to the ambience of the club. A silent auction runs throughout the duration of the show with lifestyle experiences, products and vouchers from Peninsula retailers on offer.
The art show is open from 10am-5pm on Saturday, April 20, and Sunday, April 21, and from 10am-2pm on Monday, April 22. Entry to the show is $5 with tickets available at the door each day, and visitors are more than welcome to stay on at the yacht club and enjoy the BYS bistro and deck with stunning views of the bay, or just relax by the sea.
