Each year the Annual Art Exhibition is held over the 3 days of the Melbourne Cup Weekend.
It is open from 10am –4pm from the Saturday to the Monday (inclusive), located at our Studio, on the corner of Church and Anne Streets, Emerald (Melways reference Page 127 D4).
[2021 Update] Whilst we would have loved to be able to have an open to the public exhibition this was not possible due to the COVID restrictions so we got creative and set up an online Exhibition page so as we could still have this very important exhibition . Thanks to all the amazing artists that have entered this year’s event and we trust that you will enjoy seeing your awesome art work online.
The exhibition is well attended by locals as well as art enthusiasts from greater Melbourne who come to purchase artworks.
The exhibition is supported by the Shire of Cardinia and local businesses.
All work in the “Adult” section is contributed by current Arts Society members. In 2014 we introduced the “NextGen Awards”. This was specifically aimed at encouraging arts participation from aspiring young artists.
The winners are judged by a different artist of note each year. Most of the art exhibited is available for sale with a commission payable to the Arts Society.
Over $4000 in prizes! Our Annual Art Exhibition 2019 is open to Adult Members and NextGen (under 20) Artists. Major Prizes: Adult Members — First
