MOTEL Art Fair, a true success story now in its third year, will be held at the Bermagui Motor Inn at the end of July.

SECCA Director, Iain Dawson is calling for practicing visual artists in the shire to apply to participate in this anticipated and popular all day event.

“MOTEL Art Fair attracts hundreds of seasoned art lovers, first-time collectors and tourists and we are always looking for new artists to join in this unique experience,” Mr Dawson said.

“A curated selection of artists, including painters, photographers, illustrators, ceramicists, and more, will have their works displayed in mini galleries in the motel rooms.

“MOTEL Art Fair is free for selected artists and everything on display at the Art Fair is available to the public to purchase.

“With this year’s event located in a charming seaside motel in Bermagui, the best of the Bega Valley artists will have the chance to connect with new audiences and spend time with their peers.

“Applications close at midnight on Friday 2 June, so now is the time to seize the opportunity to promote and sell your artworks.”

The MOTEL Art Fair will be held at the Bermagui Motor Inn (Lamont Street) on Saturday 29 July, with a special opening event on the evening of Friday 28 July.

Artists can apply to participate by completing this form.
