Event: -
Are your walls looking a little bare? Do you need a lively looking painting to jazz up your living room? Does your hallway wall need a landscape design to compliment the wooden panelling? Does your simplistic black and white interior need a vibrant red print to offset the contrasting tones?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes (or even if it's no), it's well worth planning a visit to St Joseph's College in Newtown, to check out their annual Art Expo. Held in the school gym (the Br OS Adams Centre), the Art Expo will be held from Friday June 22 to Sunday June 24, and will feature the works of over 20 professional artists.

There will be a variety of different artworks on display, including paintings, prints, sculptures and jewellery- and all will cover different themes- so there is sure to be an artwork that would suit your home or office, or make a perfect gift for someone special.

There will also be a silent auction, or you could try your luck in one of the raffles where you have the chance to win an original artwork from one of the featured Geelong-based artists.

This event has been running strong for quite a few years, and has yielded some amazing works by our local professional artists. I have found that many of the featured artists attend the opening night and are happy to discuss their works with you. Better yet, you have the opportunity to purchase the artworks at studio prices (which can sometimes mean a significant discount), and take them home with you when you leave the show.

Entry is by gold coin donation, and there's no obligation to buy anything, so why not drop by the school and see if any interesting pieces of art catch your eye? Who knows? You might buy the work of a future Met, Tate Modern or Guggenheim artist, and wouldn't that be an exciting conversation-starter.
