Frames are being straightened, labels are being carefully printed, and levels are out making sure everything is in line; the Rotary Wimmera Art Fair is about to open for 2021.
Located at the Horsham Town Hall spectators can enjoy all sorts of artwork. There are ceramics and textile art, to traditional landscape and modern abstract - something for everyone to enjoy.
The Art Fair's art space was completely booked out by artists gunning to show off their art. There are over 250 pieces on display.
Nhill's Isla Dart has entered her art into the fair since 2002, after working as an art and textile teacher.

"It's a privilege to be able to put your work on show."
Leanne Onley started painting seven years ago when she turned 50.
"I couldn't see myself on a motorcycle or a tattoo, so I took up painting."
Ms Onley also gains inspiration for her surroundings; many of her pieces are inspired by her farm near Halls Gap and the Grampians.
"I paint from a feeling, rather than an image," she said.
She also has a photography series on sheds in the art fair.
Ms Onley won Best Artwork in Show in 2019.
Another artist, Cassy Velinos, had entered her art for the Wimmera Art Fair.

Entry is a gold coin donation that will go towards the Rotary of Horsham East's community project.
