Art for show and sale

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 24-Mar-2016


THE revamped Bendigo Town Hall will play host to one of the Bendigo Easter Festival’s most popular attractions – the Rotary Club of Bendigo’s annual art exhibition and sales event, from tonight.

This year marks the 48th Easter art exhibition for Rotary, with more than 700 entries on show from tonight’s gala opening and commencement of sales all playing their part in one of the club’s biggest fundraisers for the year.

Organisers are hoping for another bumper crowd to attend this year’s art show, after more than 7000 people filed through the doors of the Town Hall last year during Easter.

The Bendigo Weekly-backed event will offer $1500 to the winner in each of the three main categories – Best Oil or Acrylic, Best Watercolour and Best Pastel or Drawing. The overall winner will receive an additional cash prize of $2500.

Three highly commended awards will earn their creators $500 each.

Tonight’s gala launch and awards evening kicks off from 7.30pm. 

Tickets are available from the Bendigo Visitor Information Centre, by phoning 1800 813 153 or at

Tickets cost just $25 and include finger food and drinks.
