THE 50th anniversary Mornington Art show will feature about 700 paintings, work from glass artist Roberta Easton, artist and sculpture Neil Uren and coastal art hangings by Amber Skehan.
“Glass blowing is such a captivating medium, a truly worthwhile and satisfying art form,” said Easton, who has been a professional glass blower for more than 20 years. “In 1990 I was introduced to glass and immediately formed a strong attraction. From this was born a commitment to pursue glass as my chosen career.”
A regular contributor to the show, Uren will be exhibiting some of his nearly one metre high wooden sculptures of birds and fish.
Skehan uses natural materials to create “lasting memories of the peninsula seaside environment”.
Works from VCE students at Toorak College, Balcombe Grammar and Mornington Secondary College will also be on display.
Award winning artist Pamela Pretty will judge the 2022 show. Pretty paints on location in the Yarra Valley, around Port Phillip, rural Victoria and New Zealand.
Mainly using oil and pastel, her subjects are usually landscape, seascape and dramatic skies.
The Mornington Art Show will be held in the studio and community house on the corner of Wilsons Road and Nepean Highway, Mornington.
After opening night on 20 January, the show will open 10am-5pm daily until Australia Day, 26 January.
