The 2020 Rotary Daylesford Art Show is now live online and will remain online for the month of November and beyond.

Because of the COVID 19 restrictions it has not been possible to hold our Art Show at the Daylesford Town Hall as in years gone by. The Art Show has become a Daylesford tradition on the Melbourne Cup weekend.

To ensure that our support for local artists continues in these difficult times, Daylesford Rotary member Tim Cansfield-Smith has built a website which features more than 160 paintings that have been submitted by 54 artists. With the hard work of the Art Show committee overseen by Alicia Kaye, the paintings have been loaded on to the web site and are now available for on-line purchase.

The Art Show link is:  

Daylesford Rotary urges all members of our community to support the work of our arts community and purchase a painting.
