The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor’s Annual Art Show, Australia’s largest outdoor art exhibition with in excess of 1,300 paintings on display, is part of the culture of the lazy seaside town of Victor Harbor with many people looking forward to the event each year.
Held during the town’s peak tourism period can see over 10,000 people filter through the huge marquee during the nine days the event is run. This year was the shows 36th year and was held between Friday the 16th and Saturday the 24th of January.
The 2015 show saw 341 paintings sold for a total of $229,415, raising much needed funds for local, national and overseas projects, while introducing the broader public to a vast array of different artistic styles and genres they may not have otherwise encountered.
I know personally as an artist, I see it is a fantastic opportunity to have your work presented (and potentially sold) next to great local artists you have grown to admire.
This is the second year running I’ve had my work hung at the Victor Art Show and it is always good to see your work displayed next to such great and varied pieces.
Certainly gives me all the inspiration I need to keep working hard and getting better each and every day.
