Making a Splash
Kew Primary School, the oldest school in Kew (established in 1870), is holding its inaugural art show - Splash Art - from Friday 17th - Sunday 19th October 2014. The exhibition emphasises good quality, affordable contemporary art by some of Melbourne's most exciting, emerging and established artists.
