The Art Show Pakenham committee have dusted off the creativity COVID-19 cobwebs and set to work to bring Cardinia Shire’s community art show back to life! This year the venue is the Art Gallery at Cardinia Cultural Centre, where more than 300 artworks will be showcased as part of the Show, including a digital art display. 
 
Event manager Jillian Ronald said, "last year was rather bleak with little opportunity for the expression of the visual arts. Many artists felt too numb to create... We are all looking forward to seeing and experiencing art face to face again.”
 
The special category for 2021 is digital art. A slideshow projection will run during the Show demonstrating this fascinating artform where imagination rules supreme. 
 
This year’s raffle prize is a beautiful charcoal drawing by well-known local artist Elena Kolotusha titled Hunter’s Gaze (pictured). Tickets will be on sale during the art show.
