THE inaugural Hastings Art Show in April will host a huge collection of paintings and photographs from local and Victorian artists.
The art show is to raise money for the Holy Trinity Church in Hastings, which lost its op shop when the old church burned down in 2017.
The old church operated as an opportunity shop, and was adjoined to the new church, which firefighters were able to save.
Church volunteer Sandra Brown said people could view the works at the gala opening night on Thursday 21 April, which will include refreshments and food, and there will be early-bird purchase opportunity.
Visitors can also watch artists ‘in residence’, during the show.
All visitors are invited to place their vote for the people’s choice award, which will be announced on Saturday 23 April and posted on the virtual show website.
The show will also run virtually, with even more artworks available for viewing and sale.
The art show will be held over two days, 22 and 23 April, at the Holy Trinity church, corner of King and Church Streets, Hastings.
The online sale will be held on 22 and 30 April.
