Festival Launch for 2016

As the planning progressed we ordered new banners and set them up a couple of weeks before launch date. You can see them from the coffee shop across the river, so a coffee before the punt starts operating at 11am is a real thing.
Then the sculpture was brought in - and for once the setup was accomplished in fine weather - no floods, fires, storms or other catastrophes.

The big day dawned, the people came and Coucillor Claude Ullin, Mayor of the City of Stonnington launched the 2016 Herring Island Summer Arts Festival and opened the "Narrative" exhibition of work by members of the Association of Sculptors of Victoria.

The show is open and welcomes visitors - remember only two more weekends to see this one. Then you can return to see the work of the Basketmakers of Victoria.

A4 Art Australia continues...

A4 Art Australia
An initiative of the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria Inc.

A National Exhibition of A4-sized contemporary art in an incredible range of styles and subjects - a delight to the eye and the imagination!

If you have not yet been to see our exhibiton A4 Art Australia, it continues this weekend (28, 29 March) and the Easter Holiday long-weekend (4, 5 & 6 April).

There are many beautiful and imaginitive artworks in our show of over 370 A4 sized artworks still awaiting a red sticker, so come along and snap up your favourite ones! Prices are quite affordable. All 2-dimensional artworks come complete with a stylish black frame (under glass). You don't need much wall space to hang one or two!

Access to Herring Island (located in the Yarra River, Melbourne, between Richmond and South Yarra) is by Parks Victoria Punt Service 11am-5pm (on the dates mentioned above) leaving from Como Landing South Yarra, and the Gallery is open from 11.30am to 4.30pm.

See the Mini Review of the official opening last Saturday (21 March) on our website with a
photo gallery to give you an idea of what to expect.
