Organisers of the 41st Terry White Chemmart Wimmera Art Fair have hailed the weekend’s event a resounding success.
Rotary Club of Horsham East hosts the long-running three-day event, which this year featured an art deco theme.
Rotarian and art fair committee member Chris O’Connor said numbers were up on previous years.
“There were a lot of people in town and the feedback from artists and patrons was very positive,” he said.
This year’s event ran in conjunction with Horsham’s Art is… festival for the second consecutive year. “A display of dresses from the Art is… festival was also popular. Models paraded throughout the hall in colourful dresses,” Mr O’Connor said.
“Horsham College art students displayed for the first time and the kids did really well. They really enjoyed the fair and took selfies with their works.”
The club raised $8000 to buy an oncology chair for the Wimmera Cancer Centre.
“The club has a long history of providing physical and financial support to Horsham’s major projects that improve the lifestyle of our community,” Mr O’Connor said.
