of the Art Show
The Art Show was started as part of an effort to reinvigorate the ladies committee of St John’ s Church of England, Flinders, to raise funds for parish work.
From its small beginnings in 1967 the Flinders Art Show has continued to grow, dependent, as always, on the goodwill and the hard work of the local traders and community from which the Committee and volunteers are drawn.
Profits from the show are distributed to local charities and community groups on the Mornington Peninsula. In the past nine years in excess of $265,000 has been distributed to these groups. All work done by our committee is entirely voluntary.
On the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend in June, we celebrated our 50th anniversary of the Flinders Art Show.
- To give opportunities to artists to market their works; and with the revenue generated,
- To give financial assistance to sustain community needs on the Mornington Peninsula.
