Easter Art Up

New kid on the block, Mornington Peninsula Art Show, burst on to the scene in 2010 and quickly establishing itself by showcasing the best artists the Peninsula has to offer. Over Easter week Southern Peninsula Arts Centre is converted into a purpose-built art gallery exhibiting exceptional photographs, prints and paintings.

Adding to its many generous art prizes, this year MPAS offers the ‘Yesterday’ prize celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ visit to Melbourne. Artists are invited to create an artwork the size and shape of a vinyl record album inspired by a Beatles’ song.

Opening Night is Thursday, April 16 from 7 pm ($20 door/$15 prepaid). Show runs Thursday, April 16 to Sunday, April 20 from 10 am to 5 pm (except Friday from 11 am) and Monday, April 21 from 10 am to 2 pm ($5) at SPAC (Rosebud Secondary College). www.mpartshow.com
