Every year in June the Rotary Clubs of Melville and Applecross get together to put on an Art Show at the Westfield Booragoon Shopping Centre. The aim of the show is to:


"To encourage Artists and afford them the opportunity to exhibit their works to the public."


48th Rotary art show and sale

We are thrilled to announce that the Rotary Art Show and Sale, hosted by the Melville and Applecross Rotary clubs, was a grand success! The event ran from June 12th to June 18th, 2023, providing a platform for 120 talented artists from the Western Australia region to showcase their work. The exhibition featured an impressive collection of 400 artworks, each telling a unique story through color, texture, and form.

Art enthusiasts were treated to a rich display of both traditional and contemporary styles of painting. Visitors had the unique opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind artworks directly from the show. We are delighted to report that over 50 artworks found new homes, providing invaluable support to our local artists.

The event was held at Westfield Booragoon. Their generous provision of space created a welcoming environment that allowed the artworks to be displayed in all their glory. However, the true magic behind the scenes was brought to life by the tireless work of our dedicated Rotarians from the Melville and Applecross Rotary clubs. These individuals took on the monumental task of setting up the art walls and arranging the paintings, ensuring that each piece was displayed to its best advantage.

The success of the Rotary Art Show and Sale wouldn't have been possible without the combined efforts of several key contributors. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to JTMi Services and Prime Packaging for ensuring the event's operations ran smoothly. We also thank Art Marx Gallery for their invaluable contribution to the artistic aspect of the event.

In conclusion, the Rotary Art Show and Sale proved to be a resounding success, offering an exceptional opportunity for art lovers in the Western Australia region to engage with and invest in the work of local artists. It was a celebration of talent and creativity, and a testament to the dedication and passion of our local Rotary clubs.

We are deeply grateful to everyone who contributed to the success of the event, from our sponsors to the dedicated Rotarians, artists, and of course, the visitors who came out to support local art. We look forward to welcoming you back next year as we continue to support local artists and the charitable endeavors of the Rotary clubs. Thank you for your unwavering support!
