Exciting times for art glass in Mansfield

Autumn-Night-Trees-web

Autumn Night Trees

The Mansfield Art Glass Exhibition (MAGE) enters its sixth year and has been extremely successful in bringing fine Art Glass to Mansfield and also introducing this specialised art form to regional Victoria. Many works have sold at our exhibitions and some artists have been introduced to Victorian Galleries who now represent their work.

Our Spring Arts Festival has grown in size and stature. With Spring Arts, the High Country Festival, Mansfield Racing Carnival and TARGA High Country the event calendar has become very crowded.

MAGE exhibition now in March

With this in mind we have moved Mansfield Art Glass Exhibition to Labour Day weekend in 2017 and it will run as a standalone event over eight days. We will also, for the first time, introduce Ceramics into the exhibition and with this comes a name change.

Entries due by 28 October 2016

Find conditions and entry forms on our forms page. Entry deadline is 28 October 2016
