Herring Island Summer Arts Festival

Exhibition and Shows

15 Jan 2019 to 22 Apr 2019

Herring Island Summer Arts Festival began in 2006 as a collaboration between the exhibiting arts groups, Parks Victoria and the Friends of Herring Island.

This followed the work of Maudie Palmer who, as curator of the Herring Island Environmental Sculpture Park, established the permanent collection of art works on the island and ran art exhibitions in the renovated scout hall.

In 2018 the festival will feature exhibitions from the Association of Sculptors of Victoria, the Contemporary Art Society and A4Art Australia.

On Australia Day each year they run a program featuring all the exhibiting groups mostly with demonstrations in the courtyard plus self guided tours of the permanent collection and more activities as outlined on the website.
