Entry Procedure


Updated: 17 March 2023

ART Red Hill is regarded as the premier art show on the Mornington Peninsula, showcasing artists from both the thriving local art community and from around Australia.

After a pandemic induced hiatus, we are thrilled to be able to welcome the physical show back to our wonderful school grounds. Whilst the decision to move ART Red Hill to a virtual format was made out of necessity, the learnings gained from this have been enormously beneficial.

Following a successful partnership with Gallery 247, we are delighted to once again host an online version that will run concurrently with the physical show offering artists a greater opportunity for sales and visibility to a wider audience.

Before submitting your works to ART Red Hill, please ensure you read the Terms & Conditions carefully. Refunds on entry fees will not be provided if you are unable to meet the terms and conditions following your submission.
