A word from the Art Show Chairman
The 2017 show was an outstanding success which continued its reputation as one of the region’s and indeed Victoria’s major events.
It was held at Mesley Hall, which received a vast amount of compliments as a perfect venue. The Leongatha Secondary College kindly donated the venue and we look forward to continuing the show at this excellent venue.
Adding to the show’s success was holding it at the same time as the Leongatha Daffodil Festival. The entries this year totalled more than 460 and attendances over 1000 people.
For this year's 42st Annual Show we are increasing the reach of the show by making it a major art event where artist’s studios, galleries, wineries and an art trail will be included. It will be an event not to miss or be part of!
To all those who participated or attended we thank you a lot. The success of the event means Rotary, being non for profit , can put more back into your community.
Again thank you all,
Art Show Chairman
