Box Hill Art Group is a non-profit community painting and drawing group open to anyone over 16 and is for both beginners (student members) and experienced artists (exhibiting members). Beginning in 1952 it's one of the oldest such groups in suburban Melbourne and one of the 'regular users' of the Box Hill Community Arts Centre (I LOVE that building) at 470 Station street, Box Hill.

I leave you with a clip of 'On the Sheep's Back', which happens to be a travelling exhibition. And what a beautiful exhibition it is. If you, the reader, happens to be someone from a gallery, a museum, a library or a small local venue and would like to exhibit this collection at your venue (it's available from September 2014 to December 2015). Contact the Senior Arts Officer (Curator) Jacquie Nichols-Reeves on (03) 9262 6250 or email her as follows: email@example.com
