Got anything on tomorrow night? Hope not because the Herald Sun Camberwell Rotary Art Show is poised to inspire and uplift from 6.30pm tomorrow evening at Caulfield Racecourse with its Gala Opening, Preview and Awards evening.
If you can't make it, you have until Sunday to browse around 2,500 artworks by established and emerging from all over Australia and, of course, buy anything that takes your fancy.
At the same time, you'll be supporting the work of Rotary, which provides invaluable services to communities both at home and overseas. Check out some of the great works Camberwell Rotary has done over the years here.
You'll also be uplifting the senses and inspiring the soul in perfect timing with the onset of winter.
Look out too for demonstrations of painting techniques held in the Medallion Room. You never know, you might just be inspired to pick up a paintbrush and palette to while away any winter blues. This might help get you going.
The cost for the Thursday evening opening night is $30, which includes a welcome glass of wine. Mr Harold Mitchell AO will be speaking and presenting a $20,000 winner's cheque to the 'Best of Show' winning artist. Lucky them!
Entry for the subsequent days costs a very reasonable $15 for adults and $12 concession, and includes a catalogue and Herald Sun newspaper.
Anyone who purchases a painting at the show also receives a 3-month subscription to the Weekend Australian and the Sunday herald Sun (conditions apply).
The highly anticipated art show, which attracts around 10,000 visitors annually, has been held since 1966 in Camberwell, and this year moves to Caulfield Racecourse, a premier exhibition venue.
