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
The crowds beginning to arrive viewing the 450+ works presented for display
When 112 artists enter around 425 pieces of art work ranging from landscapes to contemporary and everything in between from far and wide and they are displayed in the excellent Christian College Sports Stadium Drysdale to showcase the many mediums and talents to a much wider audience.
 
This year was no exception. A team of willing workers set up boards, hung paintings, sold raffle tickets for the Barwon Health Rotary Volunteer Patient Transport Program, dismantled the boards and over a four-day period, have agreed to do it all again next year.
