The Rotary Club of Kinglake Ranges is proud to announce details for the 8th Annual Kinglake Ranges Art Show to be held at the Kinglake Community Centre on November 22 – 23 – 24 this year. This is the same venue as last year – Kinglake Community Centre. Opening night is Friday 6.30 pm for 7 pm start – while hours for Saturday and Sunday are 10 am to 4 pm.

Prizes and Awards are increased this year to reflect the growth in the quantity and quality of our exhibits. There is even another artistic category which may appeal to the younger generation.

Thanks to our Sponsors – please support them whenever possible as they are supporting us.

There is a very talented community of artisans on the Ranges – ranging from art in various media, such as pastels, acrylic, oils and mixed media to photography or textiles, from woodwork to metalwork, from musicians to writers – if it’s creative, there is a fair chance someone will be involved in that aspect of art! We welcome the involvement of Kinglike Ranges Arts as well as artisans from Flowerdale, Toolangi, Strathewen, Whittlesea, Diamond Creek, Lilydale, Kilmore and even further afield.

The environment surrounding our small towns is truly inspirational, whether it is the colourful birds, such as King Parrots or Crimson Rosellas, the magnificent stands of native trees, the unobtrusive beauty of endangered species such as the Round Leaf Pomaderris that was nearly extinct prior to the Black Saturday Bushfires, the seasonal colour of the pink Common Heath (Victoria’s floral emblem) or the peaceful spirit which can be found in our National Parks, such as our many walking trails leading to picnic areas, such as Jehosaphat Gully and the Toolangi Sculpture Trail.

How could any artist working in any media not be content here? Yes that Saturday damaged much, but nature is resilient as are our communities and together we have created a new normal. Our Kinglake Ranges Art Show is part of that new “normal” and we invite all artists and those interested in our creations to come and share what we have to offer over the last weekend in November.

If you would like to be kept up-to-date with all the latest, please email news@kinglakeartshow.com.au and you will get regular emails. Also check our facebook page where there will also be regular updates.

Come and visit our Kinglake Ranges – you will be delighted at what you will find!
