Film Screening and meet and greet

May 06, 2017 @ 2:00 PM

Meet Jakeb Anhvù and see previous works by Jakeb including feature film Blush of Fruit (2012) and short film The Marshall Cooking Show (2004).

BLUSH OF FRUIT | In a modest three storey home located in the beachside town in Nha Trang (central Vietnam), reside four young expectant mothers. With their pregnancies hidden from their families, they are given shelter.  But in return they must care for the centre’s 18 orphaned children.

The home’s owner, Tong Phuoc Phuc, has been praised by the country’s Prime Minister for his work as an anti abortionist and a saviour to ‘fallen’ women and their unwanted children.

But there is a darker side to the home’s media-savvy front.  Referred to as a ‘business’ by the mothers and their local community, donations continue to pour in, despite evidence of child abuse and profiteering.

Times: 2.00pm - 4.00pm

Venue: Rhyll Mechanics Institute. Lock Road, Rhyll

Colouring Outside the Lines

Colouring Outside the Lines

May 11, 2017 @ 5:30 PM

This is a 2 hour workshop for people who think they aren’t creative, or they can’t draw.  We provide a comfortable and encouraging environment, and safe method of experimentation to discover that “You are and you can!” 

Using a unique mandala stencil, and beautiful pastels and pencils, we want you to colour outside the lines! With no parameters you will become aware of your creative connection.

Once your creative juices are flowing, we stay in the mindful moment with a free-drawing session, using still life to really “see”, then sit back with a lovely glass of wine, or juice, and nibbles to admire and discuss your work.

Venue:  Hicksborough General Store, 184 White Road, North Wonthaggi.

Bookings required, phone Michelle Crotty on 0408 325 069.

Studio 40

Studio 40 was established at Inverloch in November 2009, to become the working studio of artist Ray Dahlstrom. The local environments had always been a feature of Ray's work, so the rugged coast, sandy beaches and changing seasons have been major influences on his work.  In recent times, Ray's work has been affected by the dramatic influences of climate change on the environment.

View Ray's recent work and learn about the current and past issues that influence his painting.

Times: Saturday 10.00am til 8.00pm, Sunday 10.00am til 4.00pm.

Times: Saturday 11.00am til 8.00pm, Sunday 11.00am til 4.00pm
