Yarra Glen Art Show
SUN SETS ON YARRA GLEN ART SHOW
At a special meeting of the Yarra Glen Art Show Committee held on 21st February 2020 at the Yarra Glen Living and Learning Centre it was resolved to stop planning for the next show scheduled for Labour Day weekend in March, 2021. Further it was resolved to wind up “Yarra Glen Art Show Inc.” at the end of the current financial year, 30 June, 2020. These resolutions were passed unanimously with a feeling of sadness and regret.
Since the first show in 2002 where 60 works of art were displayed, the show has grown into a major arts event in the Yarra Valley, particularly in Yarra Glen. Recent shows have attracted over 500 entries and have handled turnovers of well over $30,000. Managing the event has been a very significant administrative task for the volunteer committee and the coordinator.
Over the years the Show has received funding and support from the Yarra Ranges Council, the Steels Creek Community Centre, Yarra Glen Living and Learning Centre, many traders in Yarra Glen and literally hundreds of volunteers from the wider community.
To all those who have supported us over the years we are deeply thankful and we strongly believe that the show has played a significant role in supporting local artists and generally raised the awareness of art in the Yarra Valley.
