The Rochester Development Committee are encouraging residents to submit photos relating to the 2011 flood.RUTH CLAYTON February 19, 2013 4:22am
Photos relating to Rochester’s 2011 flood are sought for an exhibition titled ‘After the Flood’.
Run by the Rochester Development Committee, the exhibition will be held at Rochester’s shire hall from April 26 to 28.
Committee member Judy Anderson said this was the committee’s third art exhibition and the first in two years.
The exhibition was not held last year due to flood repair work taking place on the shire hall.
Mrs Anderson said entrants did not have to be professional photographers and the theme was up for interpretation, as long as it related to the 2011 Rochester flood in some way.
There is a $250 prize for the best photo, as voted by a panel of judges.
The wider exhibition will include artworks by both international and district artists in a range of mediums including glass, bronze, ceramics, sculpture, paint and mixed media.
These artworks are exhibited by invitation only.
There will also be a student division of the exhibition for VCE students from Rochester, Echuca and Kyabram.
A further $1000 prize will go to the best art piece across the whole exhibition, decided by the votes of attendees.
A gala opening night on Friday, April 26, will include a gourmet supper and wine and will start at 7pm.
Gala entry will costs $20 a person.
Entry to the rest of the exhibition, from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, is $2.
There is no fee for entrants, however a 10 per cent commission is required for artwork sales made on the day.
All money raised from the exhibition will go towards the Rochester and Elmore District Health Service.
Entry forms for the photographic arm of the exhibition will be available in March.
The exhibition falls on the same weekend as the inaugural ‘Food, Wine and Music on Moore’ festival, where district musicians will play at hospitality venues along Moore St on Sunday afternoon.
