Bolin and the Yarra – Connecting with nature


October  11 to November 5

Sculpture, ceramic and botanical art by artists including -Sally Armfield , Glenn England , Paul Kalemba , Emma Kelly , Lene Kuhl Jakobsen, Joel Medley, Meredith Plain, Giuseppe Raneri  

This exhibition was inspired by Bulleen Art & Garden’s magic location – right next to the Yarra River parks. There is an island of indigenous bushland in the middle of suburban Melbourne. It is a unique flood-plain habitat and urban wildlife corridor and providing links for a range of native birds and animals within the urban environment and beyond. This area also has a rich cultural heritage, particularly the  importance of the Bolin Bolin Billabong and precinct to the local Wurrundjeri as an important annual meeting place.

 Art is a way to express our connection to the natural world, and to encourage others to find their own connections.  Artists have previously responded to this precinct, most significantly it has been the birthplace of two of the major Australian art movements – the Heidelberg school and the Angry Penguins. And, so we have asked artists to respond to natural and cultural values of this  important section of the Yarra.
