Leongatha art and photography show

This year’s show was an outstanding success which continued its reputation as one of the region’s and indeed Victoria’s major events.
It was held at Mesley Hall, which was kindly donated by the Leongatha Secondary College and we look forward to continuing the show at this excellent venue.

Adding to the show’s success was holding it at the same time as the Leongatha Daffodil Festival. The entries this year totalled more than 550 and attendances over 1000 people.

The opening night was well attended and the judge, Clive Hamilton did an excellent job considering the large amount of outstanding work. He received many compliments for his choices and presentation.

Phil Riseley People’s Choice was “The Market Place” by the Leongatha Painters Group

Raffle:
1st Prize Shirley Egan
2nd prize was Heather Bielby.
