VIVI VAN KOOMEN

ON THE COLOUR SPECTRUM

MAIN GALLERY
2 JUNE – 8 JULY | OPENING 3.30 PM SUNDAY 2 JUNE
We see distinct colours in the spectrum, but their boundaries are impossible to measure precisely. — Adam Alter
Vivi Van Koomen’s art draws from the confluence of colour vision and consciousness. In treating colours and chromatic combinations as active agents that leave impressions upon the planes of consciousness, Van Koomen’s artworks represent immersive mental, emotional, physical, and supersensual states through which abstraction, pattern, texture, and formlessness interweave, and from which vitality, warmth and primal wonder radiate. On the Colour Spectrum is an invitation to explore ourselves more fully through experiencing colour at depth.

YARRA VALLEY ARTS YERING STATION SCULPTURE EXHIBITION AND AWARDS 2024

The Yarra Valley Arts | Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition & Awards is a collaborative event hosted by Yering Station, a premier winery in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, with an arts program encompassing painting, photography and sculpture, and Yarra Valley Arts, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to enriching the cultural lives of Yarra Valley residents and visitors.
The exhibition presents new Australian sculpture, in all mediums, by emerging, mid-career and established artists. Having grown steadily since 2001, it is now the longest running annual sculpture exhibition in Victoria and an iconic event on the Australian arts calendar.
Staged across dramatic landscaped gardens designed by Michael McCoy, the exhibition provides ample opportunities for the installation of outdoor sculpture, while the long indoor corridors and breezeways offer indoor and sheltered spaces. Finalists are encouraged to visit the property and to select a site which best suits their work.
The exhibition at Yering Station runs alongside a concurrent exhibition of sculpture staged through the Collins Street offices of long-standing sponsor Arnold Bloch Leibler. In addition, a small sculpture exhibition is hosted by Yarra Valley Arts at YAVA Gallery & Arts Hub in Healesville, and all entrants are invited to submit a small sculpture for consideration.
Dr Ewen Jarvis (Exhibition Coordinator and Curator, Yering Station Art Gallery and Yarra Valley Arts | Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition & Awards) is a professional art curator, writer and public academic with over a decade of public art presentation and arts administration experience.
The event takes a 30% commission on sculpture sales, 20% of which is donated to My Room Children’s Cancer Charity, while 10% is donated to Yarra Valley Arts towards the provision and promotion of arts events across the region.
The sculpture exhibition is supported by long term sponsors who share the vision and aims of the organisers — to foster the development and appreciation of contemporary Australian sculpture in a way that supports those affected by childhood cancer. Arnold Bloch Leibler – lawyers and advisers, and Yarra Ranges Council have been particularly strong supporters across the years. The event is also supported by a growing number of esteemed arts professionals who have been members of the selection and judging panel in the past and who assist us in growing the event’s profile.
