Virtual art in age of pandemic

This year’s 21st Great Art Show will look a little different.

The show – which has been held in the Casey Cardinia region for the past 10 years – is the latest local venture to bear the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic after being forced to close its doors to the public.

However, with a special lifeline grant offered by Casey Council, Provenance Artist Inc have moved the exhibition online – which has been renamed the ‘Great Visual Art Show’.

People at home can view up to 800 entries by leading and top emerging artists – and all for free.

“Because of the virus we are devastated and have had to cancel our greatest 21st show,” Calvin Bell from Provenance Artist Inc said but added the group was excited artists had “heavily reduced” the prices of their art for the first time.

“We have organised the Great Art Show in Berwick and Cardinia for over a decade.

“The shows have been recognised as a premium art event of Victoria and the largest in this area.”
