Somers Arts Fair 2024

Small School, Big Art

Somers Arts Fair 2024

A fun day for the whole family

Small School – BIG ART!

 

Inspired by the diversity and creativity of the arts and crafts of the Mornington Peninsula, Somers Primary School will hold its annual fundraising event—the 21st Annual Somers Arts Fair on Sunday, 17 November 2024.

The Somers Arts Fair is famous around the Mornington Peninsula because it embodies three of the reasons that make the Peninsula such an exceptional place; it takes a strong sense of community support, an appreciation of fine art and a relaxed and entertaining social occasion and combines all of these into a wonderful day for a wonderful cause.

Print Room

The Print Room will exhibit and sell print reproductions that have been donated by some of our most renowned local artists and exciting new and emerging artists.
Each year the Somers Arts Fair attracts thousands of visitors from all over Melbourne. This provides the perfect opportunity for an engaged and purchase ready audience to discover, share and connect more deeply with your artwork.

The Print Room offers an exciting celebration of

  • creatives and their art practices
  • the beauty of print reproductions on paper
  • art collectors, at all stages of their art collecting careers
  • purchasing beautiful artworks
  • discovering new artists.

Main Exhibition

2024 marks 21 years of celebrating our local and emerging artists. Our main exhibition is a wonderful environment for artists to share their artworks with the Somers and wider community, in a welcoming space that harnesses and applauds the creative and unique expressions of participating artists. The exhibition space brings together many artworks, a variety of techniques, mediums and subjects.

Submission and acceptance fees applied, are a small donation that provides artists with the opportunity to sell their works at nominated prices, and promote their talents with the Somers Arts Fair visitors.

Donations

Generous artists who choose to donate artworks provide a 100% contribution to Somers Primary School and are gratefully accepted.

Donated original artworks will be sold in the main exhibition space at a price nominated by the artist and will be clearly marked as donated work.
