Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Costume Exhibition

2011_09_07_0882v3_miss_phryne_fisher_cropped_mediumThe popular ABC TV series Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries will return to Rippon Lea this spring with a major exhibition featuring the sumptuous costumes worn by the Hon. Phryne Fisher and her cohorts. The house and gardens, which features in the series as the home of Aunt Prudence, will once again be transformed as the doors open to the Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Costume Exhibition on the 7th September.

If you love costumes it is a great exhibition to see.

The exhibition is on until the 27th of October.  Tickets at the door, or you can buy tickets online.

What to do this weekend?

Daylight saving may be happening this weekend, but right now it’s looking a little windy and rainy, so maybe a couple of gallery hops might keep you busy.

At Luma, the Latrobe University gallery is an exhibition by Vali Myers is on till the 1st of November. It’s been highly recommended to me and as I haven’t been to LUMA, as yet, this is a good excuse.

Vali Myers works in pen, ink and watercolour and are extremely detailed and take you to a world of fantasy. For more information have a look at their website.



Between the Dusk and Dawn

11 September – 1 November

LUMA | La Trobe University Museum of Art Ground floor, Glenn College Melbourne Campus

The current exhibition at the Manningham Art Gallery is a group exhibition called ‘Continuing Streams’ and is a group of artists that have studios in Manningham and are responding to their love of the local region. I only know one of the artists, but it looks like an interesting exhibition.

And, finally, if the weather does hold out go over to Bolin Bolin Gallery at the Bulleen Art and Garden, where it is the last weekend of their current exhibition, ‘Alfresco’ by the Box Hill Clayworkers. A quick look revealed quirky interesting work and it’s always a delight to wander around the nursery and thoroughly enjoy their latest exhibition. Often focusing on ceramics, they always show high quality work.

2 Danks Street Award for Contemporary Art Criticism

This is for a Gallery space in Sydney, but there is no reason why people from Banyule and surrounding areas cannot enter it.

This is what the website has to say about it.

1.    Objective The 2 Danks Street Award for Contemporary Art Criticism has been established by the permanent galleries of 2 Danks Street Waterloo, in association with Artist Profile Magazine and All for Art: Art For All, to foster new writing on, and extend discussion about, the visual arts.  This award is initially being given for writing about exhibitions at galleries in the 2 Danks Street complex.  In subsequent years, the intention is to extend the award to exhibitions in other Sydney based commercial or private contemporary art galleries.

If you would like to see more about this, then click here.
