It is with regret we advise the cancellation of the 45th. Chelsea Art Show.

After careful consideration of the current issues – the Level Crossing Removal Project which is affecting the Chelsea and Edithvale crossings between July and October and the ever changing Covid-19 restrictions, the Art Show Committee have decided to cancel this year’s Show.

We apologise for the delay, but needed to ensure we addressed all issues involved.

Refunds will be processed.   For those who paid by credit card, a credit will be put through and for those who paid by cheque, a cheque will be forwarded.

We thank everyone for your patience and hope that we can hold the 45th. Show next year.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Lesley Pichler, either by email lesley3313@bigpond.com or mobile 0407 176323
