HISAF 2020 continues with "Fired Earth"

The opening of the first exhibition
"Ebb and Flow"
The first exhibition of the 2020 Herring Island Summer Arts Festival concluded on 9th February. In spite of the various misadventures the show was reasonably well attended and enjoyed. Images of sculptures in the exhibition can be seen here. The next exhibition, featuring work by members of the Valley Potters group commences on Saturday 15th March.

There will be a diverse range of functional and sculptural ceramics on show. The exhibitors and indeed the whole festival group look forward to seeing you at the opening celebrations 12 noon to 2 pm on Saturday 15th.

Amongst others Juliet Widdows will be showing work:

Herring Island Summer Arts Festival 2020 launches 18 January

Organising for the 2020 Festival is well in hand. There are three groups presenting three distinct exhibitions on the island plus there will be the usual open day on January 27 when the artists will combine forces to offer a demonstration day in the courtyard to show off the variety of skills and inspiration.

As you can see from the invitation each exhibition will be open on one Friday. This gives an opportunity for groups or individuals needing staff attendance to visit the island and the exhibitions. The island is wheelchair accessible only with assistance. Contact Parks Victoria on 13 1963.

If you wish to be informed of upcoming exhibitions we recommend subscribing to our invitation list.
