Business meets glass art at Treasure Hunt Preview
At an exclusive Preview on the evening of December 13, Bellarine business people met local glass artists from whom they have commissioned pieces of glass art for the 2018 Festival of Glass Treasure Hunt.
During the Treasure Hunt, which will run from 8 January to 18 February 2018, each participating business will display its commissioned piece; then all the pieces become prizes in the Treasure Hunt draw at the Festival of Glass Expo on Sunday 18 February at Drysdale’s Christian College.
At the Preview, the business people learnt how their commissioned glass art is created, while the artists learnt how their creativity is supporting the local economy.
Diane Schofield’s Treasure Hunt team has signed up thirty two businesses from Drysdale, Clifton Springs, Curlewis and Portarlington – up from the twenty eight businesses in last year’s event.
“Everyone’s a winner in our Treasure Hunt”, said Schofield. “Businesses can increase their custom, glass artists can increase their public profile and, of course, Treasure Hunters can win beautiful glass art.”
