An Italian day of culture

Round up of our NGV Winter Masterpieces Daytrip - Wed 30th July Some think we're a little nuts to head out at the crack of dawn into the freezing cold to go and see some foreign paintings - but it's now our 2nd Winter Masterpieces daytrip and we're really getting to enjoy the frosty start.

It was a culture packed day which kicked off with some French pastries and the obligatory coffee followed by a casual stroll to our first stop, The Melbourne Arts Centre, where we spent some time ogling their fantastic in-house art collection including works by Charles Blackman, Inge King, Colin Lanceley, John Olsen (right) and Fred Williams.

Arts Atlas launches in South West Victoria

ArtsAtlas is a new arts communications portal for the South West Victoria region and exists to build a community of people who like to share what they do with others and who also like to know what’s going on.  
Having been successfully rolled out in Ballarat and the Goldfields region, it has been developed with artists, organisations and cultural groups in mind, in response to the needs of this region. Its aim is to bring people together, to share what’s going on and to profile our region.  
It is not only a tool of sharing for artists and cultural services but also a useful resource for the whole community, businesses and organisations wishing to work with artists and events.  
Arts Atlas South West invites artists and art lovers to be part of this community, to share your events, and show what you do. You can subscribe to the monthly e-news or check in to see what’s happening on the calendar.
