A big thank you to all sponsors who have supported the Mornington Art Show for 2021 during this unprecedented year.

Guest Artist John Stroomer, a local potter, will be exhibiting a range of his beautiful pottery for display and purchase.

John Stroomer is an accomplished international potter with an insatiable passion for his work; its conception, the process, the execution and ultimately, the end result.  John lives on the Mornington Peninsula and is thrilled to be showing his work at this year's Art Show.

John has been a potter for over twenty five years, in his latter-day work John has striven for perfection in the use of often volatile Crystaline-Glazes as well as more traditional forms of porcelain decoration.
