Stunning showcase of sensational art

Forty years ago, the organisers of the first Mount Eliza Art & Design Show could scarcely have imagined what a massive success the annual show would become. It is now entrenched as one of the highlights on the Peninsula arts calendar, and the 40th anniversary show on the weekend of October 26-28 at Mount Eliza North Primary School promises to build on that reputation for variety and excellence.

Artists, designers, sculptors and jewellers from around the Peninsula and beyond will have their stunning works on display and for sale. The feature exhibitors for this year’s show are artist Billy Nye, photographer Nick Psomiadis, jeweller Pam Mujica (PAMDesigned) and pottery artist Manuela Ferstl. The Grand Opening Gala Night on Friday, October 26, from 7.30-10pm offers art-lovers the opportunity to experience the exhibition with live music, wine from Foxeys Hangout, beers from Jetty Road Brewery, delicacies from the Edible Art Co and the live auction.

Over the weekend, Café D’art will be serving refreshments and light lunches, as well as a barbecue. There will also be a scavenger hunt to keep the children happy while you enjoy the exhibition at your own pace.

Tickets for opening night are available on, while tickets for the weekend will be available at the door on Saturday, October 27, from 10am-5pm and Sunday, October 28, from 10am-4pm. See for further details.
