2022 Demonstration Program

Demonstrations of painting techniques will be held at the following times in a room within the Art Show venue in the ATC Building at Swinburne University 427 Burwood Rd., Hawthorn. The area is accessible by lift, escalator, or stairs. These are free presentations to Art Show patrons and feature leading artists from around Australia. Demonstrating artists will be available for discussion at the end of their presentations, or in the designated area where their paintings are displayed at the Art Show. In between demonstrations, view the show and over a coffee or lunch in the show’s cafe decide whether you agree with this year’s judges. Don’t forget to vote in the Viewer’s Choice Award. Please note, participating artists and times are correct at time of printing.
