Herring Island Summer Arts Festival

Exhibition and Shows

18 Jan 2020 to 7 Apr 2024 Weekly Event

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 artworks on the island and ran art exhibitions in the renovated scout hall.

In 2022 the festival features exhibitions from the Association of Sculptors of Victoria, Valley Potters and A4Art Australia (an initiative of the Contemporary Art Society Vic Inc.).

On the Australia Day public holiday in previous years, they ran a program featuring artists from 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. Once Covid safe restrictions are lifted it is hoped to return to this program.

2022 will see a Covid19 safe program.
