Vision for the Art Show

In line with Rotary Values of Fostering Goodwill and Providing Beneficial Services, the art show is seen as a means to both achieve those aims and to support our other work.

The Art Show is a key fundraising event for the Rotary Club of Daylesford. All of the funds raised contribute to making a significant contribution to the improvement of the lives of people throughout the world and particularly in our community.


By offering an eclectic mix of arts from local and national artists our event showcases a wide variety of artistic expression. This can provide something to interest everybody, thus fostering appreciation of all types of art.  It will include paintings, sculptures, quilts, bonsai and pottery which you can not only admire but also purchase and possibly win a prize.


All of the above, whilst enjoying and possibly exploring the beautiful environs and atmosphere of the Daylesford and Hepburn Springs area.

We invite all art lovers and would be art lovers to join us for a unique and memorable experience in this, our 40th year!
