Be part of the festival

Greetings, art lover!

Most of the opportunities to get involved in the festival have closed for this year, and our festival program is now available to browse online and to pick up in stores and displays across Eurobodalla and NSW.

The 2019 Festival will officially open on Friday 17 May, with events running until Monday 27 May, coinciding with the Reconciliation Day long-weekend in Canberra.

The best way you can get involved now is to help spread the word to make this a great festival!

Show your support by coming along to events, telling your friends about festival events that might interest them, and getting involved with us on facebook or instagram.

If you’re interested in helping out for the 2020 festival, you can join the organising committee by contacting, many hands make light work!

River of Art 2019 Art Prize entries now closed

Entries closed on Saturday 20 April 2019 at midnight.

Finalists will be selected by a panel of judges, and winners will be announced at the finalist exhibition opening on Thursday 16 May at SoArt Gallery, Narooma. Everyone is welcome to join us for this celebration.

Open Studios

Open Studios is a festival highlight, with artists opening their creative spaces to the public. An Open Studio is a unique opportunity for arts patrons to meet with artists and see them at work, and for artists to share their work with a new audience, and sell pieces directly.

Hosting a River of Art event

Individuals and arts organisations create and host their own exhibitions, workshops, performances or other special events as part of the 2019 River of Art Festival program.

Events can be large or small, and offer many ways for festival attendees to get involved and celebrate local artists and enjoy the creative opportunities Eurobodalla has to offer.
