17th Annual City of Marion
Community Art Exhibition

featuring artworks in various media by residents of the
City of Marion

It’s that time of the year again, when Marion’s artistic community get the opportunity to showcase their talents in the 16th Annual City of Marion Community Art Exhibition. There has been an exhibition each year since the Marion Cultural Centre opened in 2001.

This exhibition has become a much anticipated event for all the creative residents of the Marion Council area, and approximately 130 artists will be displaying their work. They range from junior artists, hobbyists and ‘weekend dabblers’ through to professional practitioners.

All City of Marion residents were invited to participate, and each year there are a number of new artists becoming involved. Artwork in all media will be featured, including paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculpture, photography, textiles, mosaics, glass and basketry. Most of the artwork will be for sale, at very affordable prices.

The event is fully supported by the City of Marion, with no fee for the artists to enter. In addition, on the launch evening, the Mayor of Marion will present an award for the ‘Most Outstanding Artwork’, as well as several ‘Merit Awards’. A ‘People’s Choice’ award is won at the close of the exhibition.

An added benefit for buyers is that any work purchased may be collected before Christmas - perfect for gift giving over the Festive Season. Normally, artwork would stay on display for the duration of an exhibition.

Gallery M is a great venue for children and adults alike, especially during the holiday period. The varied subject matter of the artwork always makes it very interesting, and younger visitors enjoy discovering the differences in the images on display through activities such as the Art Walk. 

The exhibition will be on display at Gallery M until 5 January 2017.
