What can I say but, yet another successful Annual Easter Art Show run by your local Rotary Club of Drysdale. Many hands make light work and never a truer word is spoken when the club comes together to put on the Annual Easter Art Show. The 43rd year was no different with volunteers appearing to work tirelessly giving up time with family and friends without a complaint.
 
There is a lot of work for this club to pull it all together but the fun we have doing it is all worth it. Especially when you can raise in the vicinity of $17,000 to give away.
The Art Show was launched on Friday evening with winners from all categories announced

When you travel you meet the most amazing people. The same can be true when people travel here to meet us.
 
A group of members of various Canadian Rotary Clubs arrived to Drysdale recently and what a joy it was to show them around our great Bellarine Peninsula. Other Rotary clubs took a turn and the group of 10 got to see a fair bit of Victoria over a two-week period.

Ryan Brearley grew up in a family interested in the arts. His mother, a secondary arts teacher, became an internationally recognised textile artist and encouraged his artistic endeavours from an early age.
 
Ryan trained at local TAFEs and at the McNeill Academy of Realist Art in Geelong with Lance McNeill. His wide training has meant he is proficient in many disciplines, from painting to printmaking, and is reflected in his successful range of classes taught through the Queenscliffe Neighbourhood House. He has also had over ten years experience in the art materials industry, which not only has exposed Ryan to the wide range of supplies available and there uses, but also having travelled overseas to see their production.
The Rotary Club of Drysdale is very proud of how their prestigious annual Easter Art Show has evolved from humble beginnings to what we present to you the patrons this coming Easter Weekend.

Many and varied Art Show Coordinators have tweaked it each year and made the Show the well-oiled machine that it is today. Again, we have attracted our regular artists and some new ones with over 400 paintings on display.
