Organisers have decided to postpone Art Red Hill, the Mornington Peninsula’s premier art show, to help with national efforts to slow the spread in the number of people with COVID-19.
Art Red Hill began back in 1980 as a way to raise money for Red Hill Consolidated School and support arts in the area. It has grown from strength to strength – last year it attracted more than 600 people to its opening night event and more than 4000 people over the Art Red Hill weekend. Hundreds of talented artists from the Mornington Peninsula and around Australia take part in the show, which also features a café, Kids’ Art tent and pop-up shop.
Art Red Hill co-convenor Marlo Reyneke said: “We made the decision to postpone Art Red Hill in consultation with Red Hill Consolidated School and in accordance with government health advice.
“Art Red Hill is more than an art show; it’s a special celebration of creativity and community. We look forward to holding a fantastic Art Red Hill later in the year for the show’s 40th birthday. We will announce a future date for the 40th Art Red Hill in due course and will keep people updated online and via social media.”
