Art at this years show

As a preliminary to the Show, and to encourage entries for the Art Pavillion, on Saturday 3rd and Saturday 10th October two Children’s Art Mornings will be held from 10am to 1pm in the Wheel & Loom building in Maldon’s Main Street.

This will be with the assistance of artists and the provision of free art materials so that children can produce entries on the spot to be entered into the Show. Entry forms will be available on these mornings.

The Show is only on for one day, so we are extending Art exhibition time by moving artwork (with permission of the artists) to the Wheel & Loom building, in Main Street, Maldon for a period of one extra week. Please note on the entry form if you wish to take part in this extension time. .

Below is the schedule for age group entry, and the entry form. We have also included Section 17A which is for adults or students over 16 years of age, in case this is of interest.

For the first time, digital art has been included in the children’s section, age group 8-12 years, and 12-16 years. We hope this will interest our new and emerging electronic artists!

Baringhup Alpacas join 2015 Show

Welcome aboard to Judi Bromage & David Booten who are the proud owners of Baringhup Alpacas, Judi & David will be displaying some of their Alpacas at this years show.

Their alpaca venture began in 2008 with purchases from Millduck Alpaca Stud and later from Camelot Alpacas.  They have grown our numbers slowly concentrating on breeding and purchasing well framed and robust colored huacaya alpacas with sound genetic lineage and gentle temperament.  Their property has Q Alpaca status. All Baringhup cria are trained to lead on halter which makes them easy to handle.
