After a year-long hiatus, the Arts Project gallery is moving from its Northcote location, which continues as a studio, to a freshly remodelled space at Collingwood Yards, a new arts precinct in Melbourne’s inner north.
The inaugural exhibition Where the Art Is ruminates on the year that was, while firmly looking forward to a new future and opens to visitors from Saturday 20 March until Saturday 1 May.
Where the Art Is showcases collections of thought-provoking new work by ten artists: nostalgic ceramic sculptures by Alan Constable and Lisa Reid, a video installation by Chris O’Brien, COVID-19 lockdown drawings and paintings by Cathy Staughton, Adrian Lazzaro, and Samantha Ashdown, text-based work by Boris Cipusev and Mark Smith, archway paintings by Warren O’Brien, and iconic pastel drawings by Julian Martin.
Opening: Sat 20 March 2-4 pm with APA artist preview 1-2 pm.
Gallery hours: Wed – Fri 11 am – 6 pm, Sat & Sun 12–4 pm or by appointment. Bring a face mask.
Location: Accessible and barrier-free to all audiences at level 1, Collingwood Yards, Johnston Street, Collingwood.
