Due to the current situation with Covid19 (coronavirus), and the guidelines being set by the Government, we have had to cancel the Drysdale Easter Art Show.  We would like to thank you and all artists for your wonderful support of this event by entering around 450 pieces of art.  We are proud that this Art show supports both you the Artist and Rotary to continue its community work, but unfortunately the current climate around the world has not allowed this year’s show to go ahead.      


The Rotary Club of Drysdale Annual Easter Art Show has brought artists and art-lovers together every Easter for over four decades. It is the premier display of paintings in the Geelong region. 

The Annual Easter Art Show is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday over the Easter long weekend and all proceeds from entry fees and painting sales go to support local and overseas charities and community programs.

Barwon Health's Volunteer Patient Transport Service provides unprecedented support to the local community. Last year, more than 10,680 trips were made to transport Barwon Health patients and clients to vital medical appointments. The service wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of more than 30 volunteer drivers and the generous support of the Geelong community, including 11 local Rotary Australia Clubs.

Our Art Show raffle provides funding for maintenance of the Barwon Health Patient Transport Cars. These vehicles provide a mode of transport for patients to and from their medical appointments at no cost. 100s of people throughout Geelong use this service monthly, and we are very proud to be supporting such a great service!
