Open Studio Weekend Countdown ....only 3 weeks to go!

Image
During the Easter Weekend Birregurra's practicing artists invite you to discover their studios, providing an intimate and privileged insight into their arts practice.

TheWeekend provides a rare opportunity for visitors to chat with the artists in their studios and view works in progress, pieces that didn't quite make it, and, of course, successful end results. Also, where possible, they may witness the creation of a new work. You are invited to experience the people, space, making process and ideas that unfold within the private studios of artists in and around Birregurra.
The studios will be open Saturday, 19th and Sunday, the 20th of April, 10am - 4pm. We are counting down the weeks by shining the spotlight on individual, participating artists, giving you a little taster of one of the Open Studios each week.

Arts Ambulance.....

.....First Aid for the soul! We visited Apollo Bay Music Festival today and met Dave, the Arts Ambo.

David Freedom Rose is a member of the Apollo Bay community and has used this years' music festival to premiere his Arts Ambulance. He stood out from the many stall holders in that he had nothing to sell, not a single product to feed our relentless consumerism. Instead Dave, The Arts Ambo, provided a pristine set of Derwents, some paper, a plush rug upon with various musical and percussion instruments and some colorful ribbons. All of it inviting festival goers to do or practice, rather than just buy. We came away feeling...hm... what.... if I had to put a name to it, I'd say joy. This joy was also evident in the 'patients' Dave administered his First Aid to - thank you Dave.
