Downlands College RME Art Exhibition

See AWESOME ART at the Downlands College RME Art Exhibition

Gala Opening: 7pm Friday 17 September

Exhibition: 10am - 4pm, 18 - 25 September


Every year, the doors open to reveal a dazzling array of fine paintings and prints of glorious colour and variety, detailed and unusual silver, glass art, ceramics and crafts. Each alcove and turn revealed something of beauty to be admired or bought.

Not only was there something for the avid art collector, but enough variety of style and form to please everyone.

Feature Artist - KATHY ELEM

Kathy Ellem runs her own art gallery and workshop space, Kathy Ellem Fine Art, in the historic gold rush town of Beechworth.

Kathy won the prestigious Australian National Equine Art Prize in 2017 (with an $8000 cash prize), and more recently, the Christine Drewyer Award at the Women Artists of The West 48th National Exhibition (United States).

GALA OPENING - tickets available here

The GALA Opening Night - 7pm -10pm on Friday 17 September is recognised as the BEST party in town and certainly one to be circled on calendars as a must for next year.

200-400 people gather in the Graham Centre for a champagne and gourmet supper accompanied by music.

Art Café

During the Exhibition 10am - 4pm daily, from Saturday 18 September until Satuday 25 September, Refreshments are available at the Café in  Tudor Hall which is adjacent to the Graham Centre.  Visitors can relax with morning or afternoon tea or lunch whilst contemplating your newly acquired art under the shaded café tables.
