In 2019, the Derinya Art and Craft Exhibition celebrates its 44th year. For one weekend in July the Stadium space at Derinya Primary School is transformed into a vibrant and exciting gallery. The DACE SPACE is a stunning showcase of both visual and functional art. Displayed throughout the gallery are approximately 350 contemporary, and traditional paintings, photographs and mixed media artworks. Contributing to the exhibition are both renowned local artists alongside up and coming artists.
Our craft shop abounds with over 1,000 pieces of sculpture, glassware, ceramics, furniture, textiles and giftware. Support our local designers and artisans by purchasing a handmade gift that will be treasured forever.
Our jewellery boutique has a glittering array of over 1500 pieces to choose from – there is something to tempt everyone. This is a highly popular part of our exhibition and the place to find gorgeous original accessories. Artisanal bling!
All pieces exhibited in art, craft and jewellery are available for sale.
Watch our artists in residence showcasing their wonderful talents throughout the weekend. Be fascinated by the displays of creativity in art, craft & jewellery.
To keep your strength up after your retail therapy, we have the bustling Ruby Tarts Cafe serving delicious lunches, barista made coffee and homemade cakes all weekend.
