Artists and crafts folk are drawn to the picturesque beauty of the Geraldine district as well as the relaxed lifestyle. A number of renowned artists, including John Badcock, Henry Lowen-Smith and the late Austen Deans have made homes in the area. Many artists have studios open to the public, or display at one of the range of galleries around town.
Each year in November, the Harcourts Geraldine Festival presents the Alpine Energy Art Exhibition which is a wonderful time to view and purchase art from around the region and beyond.
Geraldine really is an arts and art lover’s paradise with no less than 3 dedicated art galleries showcasing high quality art for viewing and purchase as well as art featured on the walls of several eateries.
