After last year’s amazing support from the locals, we are excited for the upcoming 2019 Rainbow Beach Artyball on November 23 at the Rainbow Beach Sports Club.

With a twist on the National Archibald prize, this event is intended to encourage locals to promote themselves and each other by submitting portraits – with your subject’s permission of course.

The event is open to all locals of any age and the medium can be anything of your choice whether it’s painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, poetry, macrame, sewing or pottery – be creative!

This year all artwork will be displayed at Café Jilarty from the end of October until the night of the festivities.

The public will be invited to come and vote by gold coin to determine a winner making it people’s choice winner.

Votes will be counted and the 2019 winner of the Rainbow Beach ArtyBall will be announced on the night at the ball. All artwork will be on display and auctioned off at the Gala.

We have secured our venue this year at the air-conditioned Sports Club and it will be well catered for with a dance floor, balcony and ‘The Recliners’ performing all your favourites. The cost is only $35 and includes entertainment, supper, drinks at bar prices, a gift and loads of fun.

We have the Artist Call on now, so if you want to have a go, ask the permission of the local Rainbow Beach local identity of your choice – this could even be a pet!

This work should be appropriately presented, ready to hang.

All work submitted will be subjected to the scrutiny of, and become the property of, the ArtyBall committee.

All proceeds will go to a Community Group which will be determined by our hosts, the Sports Club.

If you have nothing to wear to the ball you must come and join the fun at the St Vinnies Fashion Show at 2pm on Sunday, October 27 at Café Jilarty! See you there! Call organise Leonie on 0407 529624.
