More than 860 artworks will be on display in Bendigo Town Hall this weekend.
Now in its 52nd year, the the Rotary Club of Bendigo's Easter Art Show features works from all over Victorian and New South Wales.
Show co-ordinator Brian Figg said he was hoping a record number of people would visit the exhibition and support the artists.
"We usually get between 3500 and 4000 people through. With the Easter festival and the new dragon, we are hoping for more," he said.
"All the artworks are for sale. In recent years we have sold about 20 per cent of the paintings on display which is pretty good numbers for a community art show."
As well as artists who have entered the Easter Art Show for many years, Mr Figg said he had seen an increase in new artists entering work.
"We are finding we are getting between 20 and 30 new artists each year," he said.
"The exposure is great for artists because we have such a large patronage. Quite often we get inquiries about the artists after a piece has been sold.
"The show is the Rotary Club of Bendigo's principal fundraiser. Money raised from commission, patron numbers and sponsorship foes to many local, national and international projects that Rotary supports."
The Rotary Club of Bendigo's Easter Art Show is on at Bendigo Town Hall from April 19 to 22 from 9am. Admission is $5, children free.
