Artwork and photography to bring colour to heritage gardens

April 20, 2017 by  

Visitors and residents of Williamstown, as well as those in neighbouring areas such as Essendon, are invited to explore an exhibition in the outdoors that will display creations by local artists and works by area photographers.

Artists who take part will be in the running for a number of prizes. The event may appeal to the whole family and people are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and join in with the myriad of attractions on offer, including art workshops. The gardens are heritage listed and are one of the earliest botanic gardens in Victoria, and walks will be conducted allowing visitors to discover the local heritage. Food and drink stalls will also be present.

Musical performers will be providing entertainment, and face painting will be on offer for the children. The exhibition is being presented by the Friends of Williamstown Botanic Gardens, which is operated by volunteers with the aim of fostering conservation and wellbeing of the gardens. This kind of event will likely use flyers and printing services.

The Paint the Gardens Exhibition will be open this Saturday, April 22, from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Williamstown Botanic Gardens, on the corner of Giffard Street and Osborne Street at Williamstown. Entry is free and the event is open to all ages and backgrounds.
