The month of May begins with a generous serving of sensational art and creative conversation at Art Red Hill. Secure your place at the opening night on May 3 from 7.30-10.30pm where you’ll be entertained with music from Balnarring’s Marty Williams while enjoying a delicious selection of gourmet food from Red Gum BBQ. This year’s co-ordinators will acknowledge the 10-year commitment of gold sponsor RT Edgar Real Estate, Flinders. Visitors will enjoy wines crafted by a selection of the Peninsula’s wine giants including Montalto & Elgee and Polperro Winery, along with fantastic local beers and cider to complement the barbecue feast.
After last year’s sold-out event, tickets are only available online for the 2019 Art Red Hill gala event (18+), so you’d better get online quickly to book before they are snapped up — there won’t be any tickets available for sale at the door as in previous years. At only $40 a head, the tickets include one drink, dinner and live music and, most importantly, the first option to purchase some of the incredible art on display, including paintings, works on paper, photographs, sculptures, ceramics and jewellery.
Artists from the Peninsula and throughout Australia have been exhibiting their work in the wonderfully diverse offering that is Art Red Hill for almost 40 years. More than 1000 artworks will be on display with more than 300 Australia-wide artists contributing, making this an unmissable event. But that is just the beginning. Over the three days, the total creative experience includes a wide range of ‘arty’ things to do for adults and kids alike. There’ll be indigenous art from McCulloch and McCulloch’s Everywhen Artspace in Flinders to purchase, fabulous coffee to taste and delicious Peninsula-produced snacks and lunches to sample. The stunning pop-up retail store will be selling giftware, fashion, homewares and jewellery. Kids’ activities will run throughout both Saturday and Sunday. Some examples of craft tent happenings include face painting, nature weaving, creative and crazy craft, paper crafts and an illustration workshop with by children’s book illustrator Prue Pittock. At just $5 entry, your little ones will enjoy the art show as much as you do.
Don’t miss out on an artistic event of epic proportions.
