‘Camberwell Art Show’ June 2024

Original art Melbourne

I’m excited to be exhibiting once again at the Camberwell Art Show which commences on 21 June!

Where: Swinburne University, 427 Burwood Road, Hawthorn, VIC.

When: 21-30 June 2024

The first Art Show was held in 1966 at Camberwell Grammar School featuring 1042 artworks. By 1972, the Art Show had over 2,000 entries. In that year Study Grant Prize was instituted and David Taylor, whose works are now well regarded, was the first winner. The Art Show’s entries peaked at over 4,000 in 1983.

By 1990, over 50 artworks had been donated to the City of Camberwell and the Rotary Club of Camberwell was awarded Rotary Internationals District ‘Significant Achievement Award’ for its running of the show.

The City of Boroondara has supported the Art Show since its inception. Following the demise of the Herald Outdoor Art Show, in 1999 The Herald-Sun became the art show’s major sponsor until 2020. The Rotary Club of Camberwell is appreciative of the support of Swinburne University as the major sponsor of the Camberwell Art Show.

In 2013 the Art Show moved to the Swinburne University Advanced Technologies building in Hawthorn with its massive glass edifice and impressive facilities.

The success of the Art Show can be attributed to the quality and range of artwork and the many corporate sponsors, Rotary Club members plus a legion of friends who volunteer their time to ensure it remains the premier event on Melbourne’s art calendar.

Since its inception in excess of $3 million has been raised to support Camberwell Rotary Club’s local, national and international humanitarian projects.
