Be Wise Art Exhibition

The first Be Wise Art Exhibition ran at Montsalvat, Barn Gallery in Eltham from 10th April to 2nd May.⁠

We would like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who has made our inaugural Be Wise Art Exhibition a huge success. Especially all of the artists and the people who have bought some of the pieces. The quality of the art produced was simply amazing and the artist’s notes on their inspiration for their pieces brought the artwork even more to life. We were truly humbled by the care and thought given by each artist to help us to honour Pat.⁠

We hosted two great on-site events, one for our sponsors and partners to preview the artworks, and the second for our supporters to have an early viewing. We were delighted to host guests from many of our sponsors including Barry Plant, McLardy McShane, Nillumbik Council, M&M Printworks and Colin Brooks MP.

We look forward to future Be Wise Art Exhibitions as we create a prestigious event on the Arts calendar.

All the artwork is still available to view here and whatever hasn’t yet sold is still available to purchase.⁠
