Home is where the heart is!

The City of Banyule has just opened its first dedicated gallery: Hatch Contemporary Arts Space....Hooray! What was the Banyule Arts Space (no it really wasn't a gallery), has been renovated inside and beautifully done, and looks like a proper gallery, though they're apparently still working on the lighting. It's also been given a facelift on the outside.

It's now very bright. If you want to visit it's at 14 Ivanhoe Parade, Ivanhoe and is open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm. The exhibition runs from the 4th April till the 11th May, 2013.

The very first exhibition in this new space is Home: Reframing Craft and Domesticity, curated by Claire Watson. The exhibition is divided into 'rooms' where the works, both from the Banyule Art Collection and  from a variety of artists have been selected. It includes work  from woodworkers, ceramicists, embroiderers, jewellers and all sorts of contemporary art relating to the theme of Craft and Domesticity.

There is a program surrounding the exhibition with workshops, talks, to try and involve the whole community in the opening of the new space. For more information you can visit

I have been lucky enough to have some of my work selected for the exhibition, three of my little empty nests sit in the 'lounge room'.

It's a jam packed exhibition and well worth visiting. Hope to see you there!

Hi Teresa, I saw your work there - congratulations. It was instantly recognisable to me as I had seen other pieces of your work at the CAE building in the city. Well done.
I enjoyed the exhibition, it was quite different from anything else I had seen.
