Paintings, sculptures, photography, jewellery. You don't need to be an art expert to find something you would love to take home!

Join us for the annual Mount Pleasant Art Exhibition which will be held at the fantastic new Mount Pleasant Community Centre in its stunning location overlooking the estuary. This is also the opening weekend for the centre so you will be one of the first to see its innovative design.

The Art Exhibition will transform the centre into an art gallery and will be held over two days - an evening gala opening on Saturday 15th October* followed on Sunday 16th by what promises to be an entertaining day out for the whole community.

This event is the major annual fundraiser for Mount Pleasant School. A percentage of all art sales will go to the school.
