Top Art Atop Red Hill

Every autumn Art Red Hill brings together art lovers and artists from far and wide to the Red Hill Consolidated School. On show and for sale are paintings, prints, sculpture, jewellery, textiles, ceramics, photography and hand blown glass from invitation-only artists. This diverse top of the class art show set in the flourishing artistic community of the Mornington Peninsula also provides crucial fund-raising for the school.

Opening night is always an exciting affair where patrons can wine, dine and rub shoulders with artists while capitalizing on first in best-dressed art buys. Join the party on Friday, May 2 at 7:30 for savoury canapés, boutique beer and premium Peninsula wine. Live music provides a soothing soundtrack for seeing the 1000 plus exhibits from local, national and international artists.

New innovations keep this show fresh. Highlighting Melbourne’s internationally renowned reputation for street art, this year Art Red Hill showcases street artists: Losop, Chehehe, Be Free, Tom Civil, Theo Robinson and Nick Millen. The Principal’s Lounge will feature Aboriginal artworks in multiple mediums from all around Australia curated by parent Kylie Greer (Brightspace) and pre-eminent arts writer, Susan McCulloch (Whistlewood Gallery, Shoreham). The student art is always a treat.

The 34th annual Art Red Hill exhibition is open Friday, May 2 from 7:30 to 10:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday, May 3 & 4 from 10 am to 5 pm.
