The Byron Arts Classic offers a rich 6-day celebration of inspiration, creativity and involvement in the visual arts. The community art exhibition features over 300 works and over 11 awards are distrubuted to local artists.
The Byron Theatre becomes the three-tiered Dawkins Gallery with a floor to gantry central sculpture garden surrounded by paintings, photographs and works on paper. This extends to the upper level where many of the smaller works are intimately displayed. Upstairs and down the foyers and other gallery spaces are filled with artworks from emerging visual artists sitting side by side with established artists. All works are for sale.
The Byron Arts Classic Awards Night is all about the celebration of local artists and their work. Amidst live music and a myriad of artwork the awards are announced to an audience of friends, local art lovers, sponsors and supporters from the community. Throughout the event the Community Table Cafe & Bar is open and after the awards the ambience is strengthened by a performance of live music. Awards Night Tix: $10 entry
