GLENSIDE LIONS CLUB ART SHOW
The Club has just completed the 23rd year of Lions Club of Glenside Art Shows. This year we had over 150 exhibitors with some 460 works and again received a lot of comment for both the quality of the works and the professionalism of the event.
In the centenary of the Anzacs Gallipoli campaign this year, we were honoured to be able to work with Legacy SA as the beneficiary of the Art Show and delighted to present them with a cheque for $20,000.
Legacy SA was represented by their Incoming President Mark Boucher and Manager for Fundraising Geoff Barnes at our Club meeting on 22nd July to receive the cheque.

The Glenside Lions Arts Show and competition is held in the City of Burnside Ballroom and presented by the Lions Club of Glenside.
The Art Show is an annual event, held in May at the Burnside Ballroom and has been running most successfully for over 23 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.
The funds raised come from commissions on sold works of art as well as entrance fees, opening night tickets and raffles of paintings. In 2015 the beneficiary is Legacy SA.
Past beneficiaries have included:
- Cystic Fibrosis South Australia Inc
- SPELD Inc
- Mary Potter Foundation
- RDNS Foundation
- Burnside CFS
- Burnside Mobile Library
- Operation Flinders
- Lions Hearing Dogs
- Eastwood Community Centre
The Art show, as well as providing funds for worthwhile causes also gives opportunity for both established and emerging artists to show off their talents. The show receives good support and positive feedback from artists and the community.
The event is run by Lions members and their partners as well as volunteers from the various charities which the event supports year by year. The club receives sponsorship from many local businesses in the Burnside Village with the Village management also providing space to preview some of the artwork a few weeks 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. Other cash prizes are donated by Ros Neale Real Estate.
Entry is open to any artist that would like to exhibit.
The 2015 Art Show will be held from Thursday May 21 to Tuesday May 26 with Opening Night on Wednesday May 20.
Paintings will be received on Tuesday May 19 and collection will be on Wednesday May 27
