Welcome to The Flinders Art Show

2017 – Celebrating 50 years
Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend in June

About

About

History

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.

Our Mission

is two-fold

  • 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.

FLINDERS ART SHOW 2017

In 2017 we celebrated 50 years.

Click here President’s Report for a few words from our President Christine Haydon.

The annual Flinders Art Show, now celebrating 50 years, is a permanent fixture in the Peninsula’s cultural calendar. Over the past nine years we have distributed in excess of $265,000 to local charities and community groups on the Mornington Peninsula. All of us involved with the Flinders Art Show are volunteers and we welcome your interest.

However, it could not be possible without the ongoing support of people like you. 

Funds are raised via individual donations, major sponsors, commission on the sale of paintings, entry fees and advertising which all go towards staging the annual Flinders Art Show. All profits raised are distributed to local charities and community groups on the Mornington Peninsula.

How can you help?

2. By becoming a Committee Member / Volunteer
Each year we have a team of Committee Members and Volunteers. We are seeking people with Management, Marketing, Social Media and Accounting experience. If you would like to join the team,  please call Christine Haydon – President or email info@flindersartshow.com.au
