ARTFULLY ON DISPLAY By Andrea Loiuse Thomas
Catering to every possible taste, DACE
offers a rare opportunity to purchase an original piece of art at a reasonable price while raising funds for a great school. Jenny Croom is this year’s featured fine artist along with Paul Kelly’s craft works and Jennie Alderton’s jewellery. This year’s judge is a former guest artist and well-established local painter/printmaker, Gerry Knight. Derinya’s students always put on a great display in the Ruby Tarts Café open all weekend. Opening night is always spectacular, but this year patrons will be greeted by Ciara, a fire
performer, when doors open Friday, 17 July 17 at 7.30pm. Admission ($25) includes a complimentary drink from Underground Wineries or Mornington Peninsula Brewery, as well as, delectable canapés. The night concludes at 10.30pm. DACE continues Saturday 18 July from 10am to 5pm and Sunday 19 July from 10am to 4pm at Derinya Primary School, 119 Overport Road, Frankston, 9787 3633 or derinyaartexhibition.com
