2024 Pyrenees Art Exhibition and Sale

June 8 @ 10:00 am - June 11 @ 5:00 pm

Art enthusiasts and artists are looking forward to the annual Bendigo Community Bank Pyrenees Art Exhibition. The renowned art show will be held in the Beaufort Town Hall over the King’s Birthday long weekend 7th – 10th June 2024.  With art entries received from both local artists and from across Australia the event showcases an amazing array of artworks in mediums of oil, watercolour, acrylic, pastel, and mixed media.

Organised by the Pyrenees Arts Council in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Beaufort, the show is the largest event on the calendar of the small community.  Tickets to the event includes a delicious Devonshire Tea provided and served by the Beaufort Girl Guides.

Visitors this year can also enjoy a new ‘Artists a Work’ event in the Berripmo Centre. Right next door to the Art Show, local artists Angela Gerrard and Deborah Bourke are providing free demonstrations, displays and hands on workshops throughout the Saturday and Sunday of the King’s Birthday Weekend.  The Rotary Club of Beaufort will host a second-hand book sale in the Beaufort RSL Hall, also at the same times as the Art Exhibition.

Opening night of the Art Exhibition will be held on Friday 7th June from 7.30pm.  The night is a great chance to have the first look at the exhibition and hear the prize winners announced whilst enjoying delicious supper from Beaufort Liliana. Bookings for opening nights are essential by phoning 0409 922 152 or Tickets available for purchase at the Beaufort Community Resource Centre for $25.

Over the Entire Weekend, there will be LOTS to do in Beaufort!

  • At the Beaufort Art Trax Gallery, just a short walk to the historic Beaufort Railway Station, there will be works of art, gifts, and cards from the Pyrenees and district Artists to purchase.

  • The Rotary Club of Beaufort’s pop-up Secondhand Book Sale will be held again in the Beaufort RSL Hall this year, in Willoby Street, Beaufort. There, you will find just the book you’ve been looking for from Cookery to Gardening, Adventure to the ever-popular Murder Mysteries.

  • A success last year in the Beeripmo center, both Saturday and Sunday, we will have new programs such as: Artists’ at Work & Photography Art. There, you can watch or join the workshops, which are included in the price of your entry ticket.
