Upcoming Exhibitions and Events

Current Exhibition

MARIAN RENNIE

July 24 – December, 2021

I began painting as a little girl when my mother bought me a boxed set of paints so I could complete sketches on the kitchen table. That was nearly 60 years ago and I’ve explored painting with various media ever since, including working with textiles, costume making and designing with Rose Chong in the 80’s, designing sets for Australian series, including Rubbery Figures, and many other facets of visual arts.
As a self-employed artist, the onset of Covid and its consequences this last two years has enabled me to take a different approach. After so many years at the easel and with many local and international exhibitions behind and in front of me, I decided to delve into the depths of my archives.
What’s presented here today are a few pieces that I had not completed fully but with these Covid months I have regained the time and enthusiasm to bring them back to life again.

When: July 24 – December, 2021

IN THE MOMENT

Louise Foletta

November 5 2021 – January 2022

Louise Foletta has had a long association with the Murrindindi Shire, as her family has owned and farmed a property at Buxton since the 1930s. She conducted popular and well-attended summer art workshops on their farm between 1975 and 2003, as well as weekend landscape painting workshops, using the area’s scenic and rural resources. She has exhibited in many private galleries in the district.

Following Louise’s university studies in art, she taught at secondary level before and after her extensive overseas travel through Australia, Southeast Asia, India, Afghanistan, Iran, Europe and North America. While living in Boston, she attended master classes with Kaji Aso at the Museum of Fine Arts School. Over the next five decades, working mainly in watercolour, she has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows at private and public galleries throughout Victoria. She has also been invited to exhibit in international watercolour exhibitions in China, Taiwan, Singapore, South Korea, France and Canada.

Performance

The Living Wireless

Yappers

September 4 @ 730pm 2021

The Living Wireless is an unconventional play. The whole show takes place in the course of one radio show in a small town sometime around the 1950s. You get to watch the show unfold, as the announcer reads the news and weather with the help of telephone callers. Studio singers deliver commercials and sponsor messages with unlikely jingles and dialogue. Then, in the middle of the show, the cast will present The Broken String Incident, a radio play featuring international intrigue, a super-spy, an improbable tourism pitch … and also a sheep.

This YAPPERS show has been developed over recent months from an original idea, with a dozen cast playing more than 20 roles. It will be fun, unexpected, odd (in a good way!) and entertaining. Get your tickets now from yappers.org/tickets.

When: Dates TBC
Where: MIRA Marysville
Cost: $20
