The aim of a well curated art show is to educate those who wish to aspire to, aim for and reach the higher level of their art potential….   Chris White.

The change of seasons provides an imagination of wonderful feelings. As we move into autumn the colours bring a new palette every day. A slight drop in temperature poses a thought of a cosy fire and warm socks.  We are mindful that not all have the opportunities of such comfort and we look for ways to be of assistance where we can.

The Rotary Club of Eltham’s 50th Birthday celebrations last week brought back many memories of the contributions made to the community over that period of time. An emergence of the fully curated, selective Art Show encourages more opportunities. The heritage of Nillumbik Art has a very significant look and feel. Being able to show it off is a privilege and we are pleased to have the caring support from our loyal partners to do just that.

  • We wish every success to the Nillumbik Artists Open Studios this week and next.  An enormous amount of work goes into presenting only the finest of works from the local artists.
