The Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron Easter Art Show is back and celebrating its 11th year. Supported by Belle Property Blairgowrie and Moonee Ponds Periodontics & Implant Centre, the show runs over the Easter long weekend and raises money for the BYS rescue boat fleet, which is used to support junior, community and disabled sailing programs.
Artists from Melbourne and the Mornington and Bellarine peninsulas will exhibit works in a variety of media. Feature artists this year are photographer Ronald Tan and artist Claire McCall, who will be joined by returning and new artists. The show includes indoor and outdoor sculptures, the latter taking pride of place on the deck and lawn, which adds to the ambience of the club.
The show is open for private viewings on Good Friday, April 2, from noon-6pm. Tickets are $25 and will be available from Friday, March 5, at www.trybooking.com/BOQWX. The show is then open from 10am-5pm on Saturday, April 3, and Sunday, April 4, and from 10am-2pm on Monday, April 5. Entry is $5 with tickets available at the door each day.
