Australia's largest Art Show
After a 53 year history, the Camberwell Art Show continues to go from strength to strength.
Its scale and quality mark it as most significant in the Australian art calendar.
With the 2018 event to open on 6th July, the level of support from the artist community is again outstanding. Six hundred and fifty cream of Australia's established and emerging artists have entered from which 1350 works will be invited to be exhibited.
This year artists are competing for $37500 in prizes including a $20000 best in show.
Our unstinting focus on quality where we showcase the country's best paintings to the highest standards provides art lovers and artists with the best gallery experience.
Swinburne University of Technology continues to generously provide the home for the Camberwell Art Show at its modern steel and glass ATC Building at 427 Burwood Road Hawthorn. The ATC Building is transformed into 4 state of art galleries to professionally showcase the paintings for the 9 day exhibition from 6th to 15th July.
Our Gala Opening at 6.30pm on Friday 6th July is a popular not to be missed event. Over wine and canapés patrons have first choice of the art and witness the unveiling of the winning art.
We have revamped our program in order to invite more patrons and have them enjoy more time in the gallery. The evenings have been set aside as special nights. On Mon-day there is scheduled a community event in conjunction with Australian Food Allergy Association and the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. Local Rotary Clubs have been invited to conduct a fellowship evening at the art show during the course of the week. Major sponsors Parke Lawyers and Bendigo Community bank have been allocated an evening each in which they will present to their invited clients. Our popular artists demonstration events will see 10 artists in action. Artist day on Monday will again be a popular event and is free for all artists who entered the show.
The Camberwell Art Show is conducted by the Rotary Club of Camberwell and since 1964 the community has been the beneficiary with over $3m contributed to the many Ro-tary programs.
