Wabi - Sabi | the Beauty of Imperfection
Each year Dandenong Ranges Open Studios participating artists are asked to create a work based on a collective theme. This year’s theme is WABI-SABI, the Beauty of Imperfection, a Japanese philosophy which encourages us to focus on the blessings hiding in our daily lives and celebrate the way things are rather than how we think they should be. The group exhibition is a unique opportunity to see work from all the artists in one location and select the studios that most intrigue or inspire you to visit during the Dandenong Ranges Open Studios weekend.

Holding Pattern : immersive art on your phone
Holding Pattern curates a series of newly commissioned artworks, delivered directly to audience’s mobile phones.
Five contemporary artists are commissioned by Burrinja to make new digital works.
Artists include Gretel Taylor, Roderick Price, Julien Macandili, Rhys Kiekegaard, and Edwina Green.
Responding to the idea of ‘the anthropause’ (a considerable global slowing of modern human activities, notably travel, due to COVID-19 restrictions affecting the flow of human movement globally), the artists have created a suite of new visual, video and interactive art experiences for you.
New ideas and new works from the new world.
The project turns our hand held screens into the stages of our future.
A new work delivered to audiences each Monday throughout May.
Tickets are FREE, audiences simply need to register their phone number via the rsvp link.
"Over the past few months, many countries around the world went into lockdown to control the spread of COVID-19. Brought about by the most tragic circumstances, this period of unusually reduced human mobility — which we suggest be coined ‘anthropause’ — may provide important insights into human–wildlife interactions in the twenty-first century. Anecdotal observations indicate that many animal species are enjoying the newly afforded peace and quiet, while others, surprisingly, seem to have come under increased pressure." - www.nature.com

The Ranges | 3 Perspectives
Drawing from the vivid and lush landscape of the Dandenong Ranges, a place each artist once called home, the works in this exhibition showcase three distinctly different perspectives.
Be captured by the unique majesty of the ranges, seen through the eyes of these brilliant Australian landscape painters.
Mary Tonkin: Contemporary plein air landscape artist whose detailed large scale representations reflect the forest at her family’s property in Kalorama.
Fred Williams: Australia’s most iconic landscape artist redefined painting in the Australian bush during his ‘Upwey years’ from 1963-68.
Miles Evergood: An impressionist whose 1930’s Kalorama paintings are characterised by strong colours and expressive brushstrokes and use of palette knife.
