Checklist For An Armed Robber, written by Vanessa Bates and directed by Cameron Gray is the 2017 season opener for the multi-award winning Gippsland company, Off The Leash Theatre.

A gritty work, it centres around two acts of terror that occurred on the same day in October 2002- a local, small-time theft and an international political crisis, both born of a similar futility and powerlessness.

Venue: Old Drouin Butter Factory, 2A Main S Rd, Drouin

Close Encounters...with the Collection

Close Encounters...with the Collection

from February 25, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until May 21, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Every artwork has a story to tell, if only we stop and listen for long enough to hear it!

Close Encounters invites visitors to explore a range of recent Gallery acquisitions to discover their individual stories and their meanings within the wider collection.

Each of the works presented within this richly engaging exhibition either presents or suggests a dynamism between opposing forms, where one subject ‘encounters’ another. The result is a series of exchanges between styles, forms and content with sometimes surprising outcomes.

Close Encounters showcases works by Michelle Molinari, Andrew Browne, Fiona Reynolds, Michael Young, Dianne Fogwell, Jim Paterson and Sanné Mestrom, aside others.

Clive Murray-White / Michelle Caithness: a Collaboration

from March 03, 2017 @ 11:00 AM until May 01, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Cowwarr Art Space

This is an exhibition of drawing and sculpture by two artists who have discovered that they share an almost identical set of artistic values.

Clive makes marble sculptures about or based on Michelle whilst Michelle draws Clive in his studio making the sculptures of her.  Both ask numerous questions about the evolution of portraiture and neither pressures the other to create flattering “realistic” representations.

Portraiture, of any kind, is inevitably collaborative and possibly invasive but when two artists are both artist and subject, things can become doubly interesting.  In this case each has progressively encouraged the other to accept new freedoms and experiment with the intention of getting closer to his or her true expressive potential.
