Art show cancelled


THE 53rd Flinders Art Show in June has been cancelled due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.

This is the first time the event has missed its Queen’s Birthday showing since its inception in 1967.

The event gives artists the opportunity to market their work. Last year 350 works were exhibited.

“In keeping with the current regulations, and after careful consideration of COVID-19 by the committee, and the uncertainty surrounding future months, this very popular community event has been cancelled,” Flinders Art Show vice-president Barbara Higgins said.

Proceeds usually go to the CFA, Flinders Cricket Club, Flinders Pre-School, Southern Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre, Southern Peninsula Food For All, Western Port Community Support as well as others listed on

Organisers are  looking forward to a bigger and better show in June 2021.
