Art Exhibitions running 15th March – 15th April 2012
Juet Sculpture & Naturally Dyed: Journeys In – Journeys Out
This is a collaborative exhibition by Juet Sculpture (Michael Hyett and Martin Judd) and Naturally Dyed (Jude Craig), fusing metal and fabrics in response to the ideas in the novel Gulliver’s Travels.
Andrea Verstegen: A Brush with Nature
Andrea Verstegen’s latest exhibition is a collection of abstract paintings and other expressions that reflect her captivation with the bush and nature. The paintings are not realistic representations but rather intuitive feelings that come from inside herself.
Scott Darling: From Melbourne to the Mountains
Scott Darling’s paintings celebrate the wonderful attractions of the city of Melbourne and the Dandenong Ranges. He sets out to portray the city as having the romance of Paris, the history akin to London and the towering skyscrapers that are synonymous with New York.
Burrinja, Dandenong Ranges Community Cultural Centre Inc., 351 Glenfern Road, Upwey, Victoria 3158
Burrinja is open Tuesday to Sunday 10.30am to 4.00pm.
