Glenside Lion Arts Show
The Glenside Lions Arts Show is an annual art show and competition that is held in the City of Burnside Ballroom and presented by the Lions Club of Glenside.
The Glenside Lions Art Show is an annual event, held in May at the Burnside Ballroom and has been running most successfully for over 20 years. A wide selection of over 400 works of art will be on display and once again the club looks forward to strong support from the local and wider community.
In 2013 the Art Show raised approx $15,000 for HeartKids.
Overall this event has raised in excess of $200,000 for community projects in the Burnside Council area as well as outside groups providing services to the community.
The funds raised come from commissions on sold works of art as well as entrance fees, opening night tickets and raffles of paintings.
Past beneficiaries have included:
The Art show, as well as providing funds for worthwhile causes also gives some less established artist's the opportunity to show off their talents. The show receives good support and feedback from well known established artists and has been very well run and organised for 21 years.
The event is run by Lions members and their partners as well as volunteers from the various charities which the event supports. The club receives advertising revenue from many local businesses in the Burnside Village with management also providing space to preview some of the artwork in the week prior to the event. The City of Burnside provides major support for this event by providing the $3000 prize money for the painting that is judged to be the best in the show. The prize winning painting for each art show is acquisitive and becomes part of the City of Burnside's Official Corporate Art Collection.
