Mount View Art Show 2018
The Mount View Art Show has been hosted by Mount View Primary School in Glen Waverley since 1984 and in 2018 the Mount View Art Show will be celebrating its 34th year.
Each year the Art Show showcases the work of talented Australian artists whilst raising valuable funds for Mount View Primary School.
Celebrating its 34th year in 2018, the annual Mount View Art Show is renowned in artistic circles for exhibiting the artworks of local and interstate artists, including both established and up and coming artists, in traditional and contemporary styles.
Originally the show was started by the Mount View Primary School community and extended into craft stalls, with locals selling their homemade goods at stall tables.
Since then, the show has developed into an art exhibition of high regard, exhibiting paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, jewellery, photograpy and mixed media works. Over the years prolific artists have been included in the show and in our guest artist section. These include: Graeme Base, Kim Kennedy, David Chen, Michael Goff, Joan Denner, Lynne Mellady, Jo-Anne Seberry, Fiona Bilbrough, Michelle Mischkulnig, Brian Fitzgerald and Rosetta Santucci and Emma Hack to name a few.
The Mount View Art Show Committee aims to promote the artistic skill of 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional works in various media by awarding substantial prizes for outstanding art works.
Funds raised from the show go directly to Mount View Primary School. The funds are always used to implement long term educational programs for the children of Mount View Primary School, to improve school facilities and develop the school as an integral part of the community.
The school gratefully acknowledges the support of our sponsors each year. Their support and interest in the show reflects the strong community links of which our school is proud, and we encourage everyone attending the show to take note of our sponsors and support them when possible. A list of sponsors can be found on this site with links to their sites.
Special thanks goes to our extensive Art Show Committee, the Mount View School Council, the Mount View Parents’ Association and extra contributions made by parents, students and staff.
We hope you enjoy this year’s show as much as we have enjoyed putting it together for you.
