Characteristic of its seafaring charm the venue  complements the Exhibition of extraordinary works of Artist from across Victoria. 

In 2016 a smaller exhibit with 360 exhibits of artwork presented. I was unfortunate that the State of Victoria also had a AFL Grand Final this weekend due to the by-week, and also it was a Western Suburbs Club 'Footscray'. As all, we are pleased the Doggies won and next year our planning of date will be well away from AFL finals.

OUr exhibit this though lower number was of HIGH standard, the quality of artwork exceptional.

SeaWorks offers the accessible space and the Rotary Club of Altona has exceptional plans for our 2016 Art Show taking full advantage of the venue space to mark this as our BEST SHOW held and especially the Opening PreView Evening, NOT to be missed, now on a Thursday!.

Characteristic of its seafaring charm the venue  complements the Exhibition of extraordinary works of Artist from across Victoria.

Our Major Charities who will benefit from our fundraising efforts of the Hobsons Bay Art Show are:

  • Kick Start Breakfast – The Rotary Club of Altona is a proud community partner of the Altona Community Bank® branch Bendigo Bank. Together we have worked to develop and fund a Kick Start Breakfast program in Altona Schools. This program provides breakfast to school children, who may otherwise start the school day without a meal. The Kick Start program has made a difference  by giving our local school students a healthy breakfast. This is turn has proved to assist educational outcomes.

  • Latitudes - assisting our disadvantaged youth to gain a strong connection to their community. Provide mentoring, life skills, health and well being.
  • Wellness Centre in the WEST - Rotary Altona supports the RoCan initiative of Yvonne Moon OAM to build a Centre of retreat and wellness in the WEST
