It's been over thirty years since parents at Red Hill Consolidated School and members of the Peninsula art community banded together to stage a fundraising art show in the school hall.

Art Red Hill has grown to attract visitors by the hundred who come to view 1000-plus exhibits by national and local artists and craftspeople. The show opens this year on Friday, April 30 and runs over the first weekend in May.

Today, exhibits include painting, photography and sculpture, glass and ceramics, textiles and jewellery.

The show has attracted a plethora of talent over the years, including Mornington painter Margo Vigorito, whose abstract work Orange In Red will be a raffle prize at the show. Other exhibitors who have donated work this year are jeweller Barbara Gambin and sculptor Robert Ford.

Several local artists who contributed works to early shows, or helped organise them, continue to exhibit at Art Red Hill today. They include Peninsula painters Lyn Lewis, Gillian Haig and Michael Leeworthy.

All works are for sale, and across a wide price range, offering a timely shopping opportunity to buy unique gifts for Mother's Day.

Art Red Hill showcases the best from the Peninsula's thriving art community as well as works from selected artists around Australia. For artists it is an 'invitation-only' show, ensuring a high standard of works on display.

The Art Red Hill opening night is one of the region's most anticipated events, featuring canapes and regional wines, plus the chance to be among the first to buy the work on display. Refreshments are available throughout the weekend.

The show is run entirely by volunteers and proceeds go to Red Hill Consolidated School.
