Art Exhibition for September 2018: Footy, Passion and Pain.

The Rotary Club of Caulfield may be one of the smallest groups but they are the most ambitious. Their support of all things community extends to The Glen Eira Artist Society, Yvette Wroby and Kate Birrell and many others. While reading ‘Siren’s Call’, an idea was formed in the mind of one of the members – and exploded. This 2018 Exhibition is the result. So get painting, writing, photographing and thinking about what Australian football means to our communities and lives.
