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.

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.
