SOMERS FUN Andrea Louise Thomas October 7, 2014 Arts News Somers Arts Fair blends the best elements of an affordable art show, auction, local market and country fair. Showcasing original photography, painting, pastels, drawings, sculpture, mixed media and jewellery from emerging and established Mornington Peninsula artists, this fair also offers a unique feature – hand carved cypress totem poles. Auction at 2 pm sees keen bidders vying for sculpture, etchings, paintings, photography and totem poles specifically created for this show and generously donated by local artists.

Delicious baked goods, barista-made coffee, savory gourmet food plus Peninsula wine and local beer on tap satisfy all tastes. Live music from The Tiger and Me, Jam Roots and Orlando Furious, RPP FM broadcasting live, show bags, rides, games and creative hands-on activities for the kids, this annual fundraiser for Somers Primary School has something for everyone.
