The Apollo Bay Art Show first opened its doors in 1976 when Jean Berry along with Bob and Nan Davis, as members of the local Historical Society, took up the suggestion of Freda Amor to hold an art show fundraiser for the society. Apollo Bay Arts took over the running of the show in 2010 and moved the Show to its current location in the Apollo Bay Community Hall in Whelan St in December 2015. Panels were modified to this new space and the arts community has adopted this space as home of the Art Show each year ever since. As the local Arts Council, Apollo Bay Arts Inc, views the show as a good opportunity to both fund raise in support of local arts projects and to encourage a new generation of artists in their practice. In the 10 years of managing the show, many changes have been introduced as it has evolved. New co-ordinators in 2018-19 introduced 3D and sculptural pieces along with the more traditional paintings, drawings and photographs. Traditionally held during summer, the show was moved to Easter in 2021 and was a huge success. The show will run again in Easter 2023.
