Right under the great tennis player's nose


Herring Island
Herring Island is hidden in plain sight between Alexandra Avenue and the South-Eastern Arterial – just a good crowd's roar from Rod Laver Arena. Many of our visitors say that this is their first visit to the island. Some, when we talk about the island, don't know where it is.

This Australia Day holiday all this could change – good weather will favour more than the tennis:  members of the Association of Sculptors of Victoria, the Basketmakers ofVictoria, the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria and Ceramics Victoria will be on the island in the gallery courtyard and giving demonstrations of their various creative skills. This is a collaboration between the Herring Island Summer Arts Festival – a series of exhibitions of work from members of each of these organisations and the Australia Day Council (Victoria).

The exhibition currently in the gallery is that of the Association of Sculptors of Victoria. All the work on display has been recorded and images are available on the ASV website http://www.sculptorsvictoria.asn.au.

Elsewhere on the island artist Bridget Nicholson will be working on her Touch This Earth Lightly project http://www.touchthisearthlightly.com/
