A favourite Berwick art show is returning for its 21st year.

The Haval Great Art Show will be held over the weekend of 23 – 25 April at Nossal High School, Federation University Campus Berwick.

The event is sponsored by Berwick Motor Group’s Haval dealership.

This is the 21st major show organised by Provenance Artists Inc, a not-for-profit society of artists from the City of Casey and Cardinia Shire.

The Great Art Show is now the largest art show in the south east and features amazing pieces from leading Victorian and interstate artists, including multicultural artists.

More than just paintings, the Great Art Show will include a variety of exhibits showcasing different forms and modes – even sculptures.

This year’s exhibition will also feature paintings from Provenance Artists’ Lest We Forget – Vietnam exhibition, a collection of 30 paintings of Vietnam veterans and their memories of the war.

After the Great Art Show, the Lest We Forget exhibition will be given to the National Vietnam Veterans Museum on Phillip Island.

The Great Art Show will also feature a digital art exhibition by Danyon Street, a new generation master digital artist, and patrons will be able to have their portrait sketched by leading local artist Glo Edkins on Saturday 24 April, from 2pm-4pm..

Visitors can purchase discounted art on sale for up to 50 per cent off.

The Haval Great Art Show will be held at Nossal High School, 100 Clyde Rd, Berwick, from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 April, 10am-4pm each day. Entry is $7, with school students at $3.
