Somers Arts Fair 2021
Somers Primary School

The Somers Arts Fair—now in its 16th year—is held in the beautiful coastal village of Somers on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. It is Somers Primary School’s most important annual fundraising event. Our Arts Fairs were established in 2003 to highlight the wealth of talented artists and creative people in our community, to foster interest in various art forms and to bring the community together for a wonderful family-orientated day. Visitors to the Somers Arts Fair can view and be tempted by the amazing artwork in the art exhibition and the wonderful array of outdoor sculptures and totem poles that are displayed within the School grounds. Participants can whet their own creative appetite by participating in hands-on creative workshops led by talented artists, or simply relax and be entertained by a diverse line-up of talented local musicians. 

At 2:00 pm the main event of the day – the art auction – takes place at the Old School House featuring beautiful artwork donated by renowned artists. The totem poles are a distinctive feature of the auction, with many local artists creating these highly sought after artworks. 

Throughout the day there will be a variety of gourmet foods and homemade cakes on offer, local Mornington Peninsula wine, beer, great coffee and many country fair activities including children’s games, a wide range of craft market stalls and more.

1000 Ripple EffectsA Place To Call Home

I am personally inviting you to be part of the 1000 Ripple Effects Art Exhibition.

Your Art Will Leave A Ripple Effect Legacy.

I have put together the 1000 Ripple Effects art exhibition to support the opening and official launch of the 1000 Ripple Effects Project. I am opening a community center – A Place To Call Home – Creating a safe space for young people aged 18 and older who have left the foster care system.

They are making their own way. A Place To Call Home aims to reduce homelessness and unemployment for these young people.
