The Art Society holds a major exhibition each year during the Easter long weekend
Member's works on display
The Art Society presents a permanent Member’s Exhibition in the gallery at the Mayday Hills complex.
All works for sale.
Guests are welcome to visit the exhibition by appointment.
CANCELLED AND POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
This exciting exhibition is being presented by the Art Society during Easter 2021. It will be one of the major events to be held during the popular Golden Horseshoes Festival and will be held at the Memorial Hall, Ford Street from 1 to 6 April.
The theme of this year’s exhibition is a celebration of Victoria’s gold rush era and a play on the phrase ‘hearts of gold’. There is no requirement for entries to interpret the gold rush theme as works can be of any topic or style. Paintings, drawings, sculpture and framed and unframed works all considered for exhibition. However, the organisers do ask that each entry include a gold feature somewhere within their work – this might be incorporated within the work, as part of the framing or even just a gold signature on the painting.
Official opening of MDHAS, November 2017
The Art Society was officially opened by Mr George Fendyk on 22 November. It was a chance to showcase the wonderful work of its talented members. Such was the success of the exhibition that the display of a selection of art is an ongoing aim of the Society.
Beechworth Botanica 2019
MDHAS was proud to present Beechworth Botanica for 10 days in April 2019. On display in the Beechworth Memorial Hall were 149 paintings from 73 of the best botanical artists from around Australia. According to Christine, the curator, ‘this exhibition presented a cohesive message about the ability to link all people with Australian nature through this accurate and exquisite art form’. Much positive feedback was received for the quality of the paintings and their presentation from over 2000 visitors to the exhibition.
