Show off your talent and inspire the community!

We’re celebrating the art and craft abilities of the VMCH and local community on Saturday November 17, 2018 @ the Hawthorn Arts Centre.

We’d love for you to get involved in our new community exhibition by donating your own art or craft (created by you or owned by you) for display and/or auction, all for a very great cause!

All funds raised will support the Donate to Create appeal – helping children from our specialist school St Paul’s College, reach their full potential.

We’ll be opening the exhibition doors for all our guests to enjoy viewing the fantastic works on display, meeting some of the artists, joining in some children’s activities and perhaps picking up a new addition for the walls at home or a craft bargain! Why not register and grab your free exhibition ticket today!


There are many ways to get involved and donate your art & craft (please donate your items by October 31!)

  • Sell your talent. Present your art or craft talent for sale within the exhibition and donate all proceeds to our appeal.
  • Share the love. You may own a beautiful piece of art of craft that you have not personally created (we’re not all artists or crafty individuals), but would like to donate for the exhibition.
  • Showcase your ability. Display your art or craft talents in our exhibition area in this beautiful arts venue, just for others to enjoy!
  • Enjoy the exhibition. Come along to visit, take a tour, share the experience with a friend or loved on and visit the beautiful Hawthorn Arts Centre (and maybe pick up an original bargain!)
