Art in the Park History This Year Hall Bazaar Gallery Sponsors

Art in the Porongurup 2018


Artists displayed their best paintings, craft and sculptures at the Art in the Park Exhibition in the Castle Rock Day Use Area in the Porongurup National Park and the Art in the Hall Bazaar at the Porongurup Hall.  Local wineries and the Porongurup Shop & Tearooms displayed art for enjoyment and for sale.

Each year, sculptures in the natural park setting attract an appreciative audience, and more so this year with the quality of workmanship displayed by participating artists.

Visitors who attended the Art in the Dark event were treated to a magical view of the sculptures by torchlight.

The Friends of the Porongurup Range organising committees would like to thank sponsors and volunteers for their support of these events and to thank all the people who made the effort to visit.
