Motel Art Fair

Calling all Bega Valley & Sapphire Coast Artists!

Have some work to sell? Want your work to be in front of an audience of active art buyers?


BVRG will present an exciting new event; MOTEL Art Fair 2020 this August in Merimbula.

This event will showcase 15 practicing artists selected through this online expression of interest.

We are encouraging applications from local artists who have a body of work to sell to ART LOVERS including first time buyers and seasoned collectors.

Participation is FREE, sales will be registered through a centralised till managed by BVRG and a 20% commission will be charged on sales.

Motel rooms will be provided for you to display your works AND for you to stay on Friday and Saturday night.

BVRG will partner with Sapphire Coast Tourism and South East Arts and manage an extensive marketing campaign locally and to key weekend tourism markets.

MOTEL ART FAIR will be the final event capping off a month of proposed arts activities which start with the Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award on July 24.
