August Occasion is an Annual Art Exhibition held at the C1872 Old Post Office Seymour.
Two world recognised solo artists alternate. Odd years Paul Margocsy and even years Agnes Szetey. Paul is internationally acclaimed for his watercolour/gauche Bird Paintings. Agnes is known for her depictions, in oil, of the Australian bush and heritage.
Openings are held on the first Sunday in August at the Old Post Office Seymour where art and culture, history and heritage, wine and food all combine. An invitation is extended to attend the openings, chat around the open fire and enjoy a complimentary glass of local wine and refreshments.
The Old Post Office Seymour is one of Central Regional Victoria's premier privately owned commercial Fine Art Galleries and was established in 1992. Only one hour from Melbourne, it offers something different, if not unique, that is truly Australian.
A constantly changing group exhibition of paintings by multi-award winning Australian Artists is always on exhibition. The quality of the work is only surpassed by the variety offered. Traditional to contemporary paintings, in all mediums, covering most subjects, are hung as if in your home. Displays of individual quality wildlife sculpture, art glass, jewellery, limited edition prints, woodwork and pottery are tastefully exhibited throughout the multi-roomed Gallery. Since 2012 the Gallery also stocks a selection of Murano Jewellery.
The restaurant, with its open fire, is centrally located. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the relaxed elegant ambience, choose a hearty meal or snack from the extensive menu or just browse with a glass of Goulburn Valley wine in hand. Seymour is a short drive from Nagambie and just 95 kilometres from Melbourne.
The Old Post Office Seymour is home to Louise Barling and Garry Broderick, the owner operators. You are always made welcome at the Old Post Office Seymour.
