Hello Town Hall Gallery visitors and blog readers!
Just a note to say that your Curator will be away doing lots of arty stuff in a variety of overseas locations for the remainder of 2009. The gallery will be running as usual under the guidance of assistant John Hendriks (above with our beautiful horse!) and Cultural Development Officer Tammy Ryan who is returning from maternity leave.
There will be a variety of events and exhibitions still to happen before 2009 is over such as Get into Art day on Saturday 24 October and the Town Hall Gallery Collection exhibition Line, Colour, Shape which starts on 28 October.
Stay tuned for some guest posts from Tammy for the remainder of 2009 as well as some 'Curator at Large' posts from me from a variety of locations for those interested in what's going on in the art world internationally.
See you in 2010 with a great program of fascinating, dynamic and beautiful exhibitions!

Mental Health Week 2009 at Town Hall Gallery


Town Hall Gallery is pleased to host Voice: to be seen and heard, an exhibition that celebrates collaboration between a variety of Boroondara artists who experience mental health and isolation issues.

The exhibition is presented as part of Mental Health Week 2009 and features artists from CROP, Mosaic Day Program, Nova Art, Oasis, Prague House and City of Boroondara Youth Services.

CROP art tutor Lachlan Plain has guided participants to use whatever medium they feel comfortable using to tell their stories. This includes sound elements, painting, printmaking, poetry and textile works.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 7 October to 24 October 2009.
