SOMERS Primary School will be transformed into a magical arena of children’s activities, music, food and market stalls for the Somers Arts Fair, Sunday 25 October.
A dedicated exhibition space will be filled with artworks by collectable and emerging artists who, each year, create art exclusively for the fair’s art auction.
Organisers say the fair is the only event of its kind on the peninsula to combine the festivity of a fair with an exhibition and auction of rich and diverse art.
It will run 10am-5pm with the art auction 2pm, at Somers Primary School, 87 Camp Hill Rd, Somers.
Visitors to the 13th fair can bid to buy selected pieces, including totem poles, sculptures and paintings by award-winning artists.
As well as the traditional art auction, the fair will also feature market stalls selling glass work, jewellery and textiles, alongside activities tents, gourmet food, barista-made coffee and local wines.
Children will be entertained on the main oval with rides, games, show bags and a variety of hands-on activities and workshops. A highlight will be the main stage with bands and live acts – all broadcast by RPP FM.
Somers Arts Fair raises funds to improve classrooms, provide educational programs and playground equipment and maintain the grounds. It embodies the best of Somers with its relaxed and friendly family atmosphere, combined with an appreciation of the finer things of life on the peninsula.
There’s a bit everything – atmosphere, art, music, food, fun and entertainment for all ages.
Entry is by gold coin donation.
