Moonee Valley Art Show 2020 is going ONLINE


Our Art Show is back on!  In an online format.


You are probably already aware that the Moonee Valley Art Show, scheduled for 17 to 19 April, 2020, at North Park Mansion, Essendon was cancelled due to COVID-19.


However, we have since worked with our partners at Gallery 247 and resolved that the Art Show will proceed online.


As of our scheduled start date of 17 April, art submitted will go online for sale until Sunday 26 April.


This will be in the form of an online shop  "Moonee Valley Art Show" a standard format of online shop that you can browse as often as you like, only for the week it’s online.


Art will be presented via a quality photograph and, where provided, artist notes will also accompany the works.


Our motivation is to provide artists an opportunity to exhibit and hopefully sell their work given the demise of all physical Art Shows for 2020 as a result of COVID-19.


It will give our valued Art Show patrons and the general public a chance to view and buy quality art from their devices should they have the means and desire to do so. 


To further assist artists we will be waiving the Acceptance Fee we normally charge when works are accepted into our show.  By necessity, we will be scaling back our prizes but we still be offering at least one cash prize of $500 for the artists to compete for.


We want to let the artist community and the public know that the Moonee Valley Art Show is serious about being operational from 2021 and beyond and are here to support them in these troubled times.  This is no longer anticipated to be a Rotary Fund Raiser. It is now more about providing a community service to artists and indeed the general public whom we feel are in need of a positive message.


We wish you, your family and your business all the best as we navigate through these very difficult times.
