*Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show


The M.I.F.G.S finished on Sunday 24th March, 2024. We had a well displayed stand with an impressive variety of paintings. There was a constant stream of people looking at them and enjoying what we displayed. This is a good place to show and sell paintings. We sold our first painting before the show was an hour old to a couple who came specially to make this purchase. It’s exciting.

We have exhibited at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show for a number of years now and it is a very successful event. Lots of people come through to look at the paintings and quite a few are sold. The weather is usually very good so lots of people are out enjoying the gardens and the artworks.

Our artists are on site each day during the exhibition to share and assist with any questions. All artworks are available for purchase and ready to be taken home on the day.

Our paintings make beautiful gifts, and have the potential to enhance the appearance and feel of any home or work environment.

The exhibition is located upstairs in the Gallery Precinct of the Royal Exhibition Building, Calton, Victoria.
