About the Art Show
The Art Show is conducted over the Queen's Birthday long weekend each June and is the Brigade's major fundraising activity. Our show attracts around 350 entries each year and all are available for sale. Entries are received from artists both local and not quite so local. We often have some entries from interstate and the work exhibited is generally of a very high quality.
The Belgrave Fire Brigade receives a commission for each artwork sold. All proceeds of the Art Show go towards the purchase of equipment that helps us ensure that we maintain the capacity to protect our local community.
The Champagne Opening of the Art Show will be held on Friday 9th June when the sponsors will present the category winning artists with their awards.

The Show continues over the long weekend and a gold coin donation will see you well provided with a cup of tea and fresh homemade scones with jam and cream. While there is a $15 door charge for the Friday Night Champagne Gala, entry to the show on Saturday 10th, Sunday 11th and Monday 12th June is free,
There are 5 award categories which are sponsored by local businesses. Prize money ranges from $400 to $700 and as the paintings are not acquired by the sponsor, you have the opportunity to purchase a prize winning work of art.
The categories are:
- The Jack Montgomery Award (Best in show)
- Best oil or acrylic
- Best watercolour
- Best flora or fauna
- Best Pastel
