Come and see a glittering array of brooches and contemporary wearable artworks, created by artists from across Australia including regional and rural artists.

The Australian National Brooch Show is the largest show of its type in Australia. Showcasing a diverse range of media, the exhibition includes imaginative, beautiful and unusual brooches from a variety of artists. Growing considerably each year in scope and popularity, this year marks the 13th anniversary for the brooch show.

There will be a special ‘Try & Buy’ event at the opening on 8 May (Saturday) 11am to 1pm. Purchasers get to try on a brooch, and can buy it (credit card or cash) and take it that day!

Based in the City of Yarra, The Contemporary Art Society of Victoria was established in 1938 and is Australia’s oldest contemporary Artist Run Initiative. CAS is run by a team of volunteers who are all professional exhibiting artists.

The Australian National Brooch Show will be on display from Wednesday 5 May to Sunday 1 August at Fitzroy Library, 128 Moor St, Fitzroy.
