Celebrating a diverse range of artistic practices and abilities has been
at the heart of the 2019 show
Founded by six local artists, and operating since 2002, the Yarra Glen Art Show is a major community biennial art event for theYarra Valley.
The Yarra Glen Art Show promotes the Yarra Valley, and Yarra Glen more specifically, as a friendly and accessible place to visit with an enriched and diverse cultural lifestyle.
The Art Show has had a successful track record over the past 17 years of drawing people together from different backgrounds to view and enjoy art.
The Art Show delivers quality artworks across its exhibits of painting, photography, sculpture, textiles and metal works, capturing themes from realist to impressionist and contemporary abstract to traditional landscape. All artworks are on sale during the show.
Judging is done by well-known artists and one prize is dedicated to the People’s Choice Award, chosen by visitors, all of whom are encouraged to vote for their favourite work.
"Community connection” has been the recurring theme running through every art show, to which the dedicated and passionate committee has added "sustainability” to our planning for 2019.
With revitalisation in mind, we have created new artist awards to reflect the greater diversity of media we will now accept at the show. There is always an activity for children to participate in creating an art work during the event.
Our 2019 show is sure to be an enjoyable and rich experience for all with the opportunity of engaging with a variety of artistic practices and the opportunity to acquire artworks by local artists.
