ATTENDANCE numbers were down at last Thursday’s opening of the 50th Mornington Art Show, but sales have kept pace with past years.
The numbers were restricted because of COVID protocols but a “warm, balmy evening with gentle jazz music, cool refreshments and quality finger food helped provide a warm, friendly atmosphere for those sponsors, artists and guests” who did come along, organiser John Renowden said.
He said the natural light in the new studio and community house building at the corner of Nepean Highway and Wilsons Road, Mornington was ideal for displaying “the quality art work for all to enjoy”.
The annual art show is organised by Mornington Rotary Club and ends tomorrow, Australia Day, Wednesday 26 January.
“Sales [on opening night] were strong and quite similar to previous years,” Mr Renowden said.
“Many in attendance complimented the Mornington Rotary Club on the quality or the art show and its creative presentation throughout several rooms.”
“It is a really good, high quality art show that’s worth a visit until our final day on Australia Day,” art show chair Richard Vautier said.
