Wellspring – Landscape as a Source of Inspiration

MARISA AVANO

27 NOVEMBER – 9 JANUARY
Each painting is a journey to self-discovery, an observation into the world around us, and a way of finding a connection with the viewer. 
My work is informed by my experience with the Australian landscape and encounters with people. I explore with paint, design and colour as a way to translate what I see and feel.
Marisa Avano
Born in Melbourne, Marisa grew up in a family of artists and studied art and design at Dandenong College TAFE.  She has held numerous exhibitions and has been selected as a finalist in the following national art prizes: Lethbridge Landscape Prize (2021) QLD; Gosford Art Prize (2020) NSW; Percival Portrait Painting Prize (2020) QLD; Bay of Fires Art Prize (2018) TAS.  Her artwork is included in private collections across Australia and abroad, and she works from her studio in the Dandenong Ranges.

Heading Out, Coming Home

ANDREA KIRKHAM-HOPGOOD

27 NOVEMBER – 9 JANUARY
Andrea Kirkham-Hopgood regularly travels the roads between her home in Berwick and her father’s property in Yea. Heading Out, Coming Home is a visual record of the roadside vistas that have quietly but powerfully impressed themselves upon her over the years. Sometimes these vistas present a path forward and a journey ahead, at others they evoke the anticipation of returning home, while each painting in its own way explores the state of quiet reflection that comes upon us when quite suddenly the land reveals its beauty.

A selection of works from The Dance

KATE BAKER | Photography

NOW SHOWING
Isadora Duncan observed that ‘Dance is the movement of the universe concentrated in an individual,’ while Martha Graham maintained that ‘Dance is the hidden language of the soul.’ Indeed, whether expressing interior soul space or embodying physical place, dance, by its nature, moves in a region beyond words, and as such confounds all attempts at translation.
For over ten years, Australian photographer Kate Baker has worked to co-create unique dream-like dance performances for select dancers through which it is possible to register the essence of this most fleeting of all artforms. The Dance brings together images created across a succession of unforgettable collaborations: Nijinsky and the Ecstasy of the Divine with Hamburg Ballet soloist Aleix Martinez, Dances with Lyrebirds with Melbourne dancer and site-responsive performance artist Gretel Taylor, and La Poesia Della Danza series I & II, and the Abbotsford Convent Laundry series, created with Sydney dancer and choreographer Venettia Miller. The individual silver gelatin photographs handcrafted in Baker’s Yarra Ranges darkroom have been selected for their ability to convey the dynamism, the emotion, and the sensuality of the dance. In their light and shade one discerns the beautiful intensity behind the music.
Baker’s transcendent images are set alongside sculptures by Warrandyte artist Emmy Mavroidis, who represents the human form as a medium primed for acts of creative expression.

Emmy Mavroidis | Sculpture

The art of Melbourne-born artist Emmy Mavroidis is fundamentally concerned with the movement of the body. This exploration has produced a series of suspended-motion sculptures created by applying gestural abstraction to wax. The resulting cast bronze works convey an irrepressible verve that remains conspicuously alive and present in the final form.

Gardens & Sculpture Terrace

The Michael McCoy designed gardens and Robert Conti designed terrace provide ideal sites for works by some of Australia’s most accomplished sculptors.  Currently on permanent display are works by Jane Bennetts, Maria Coyle, Ernst Fries, Martin George, Rudi Jass, Emmy Mavroidis, Bill Ogilvie, Brian Paulusz  and Michael Sibel.

ANDY VUKOSAV & CLIFF BURTT | LONGITUDE LATITUDE SOLITUDE | 15 JANUARY — 20 FEBRUARY
Praised as ‘staggering, monumental and majestic,’ the aerial photography of Andy Vukosav reforms traditional notions of the Australian continent. Landscapes become earthscapes as geometries of navigation become lost in the vast and intricate poetry of space.
Set alongside Vukosav’s artwork, and resembling the handcrafted instruments of an alternate universe, viewers will encounter an array imagined scientific apparatuses  created by Melbourne-based sculptor Cliff Burtt.
WONA BAE & CHARLIE LAWLER | 26 FEBRUARY — 5 APRIL
Following on from their monumental installation Regenerator (2021) at the Art Gallery of NSW and numerous appearances as finalists and award recipients in the Yarra Valley Arts / Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition & Awards, collaborative duo Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler will bring their immersive, organic, concept-driven art to Yering Station’s historic winery building c. 1859.

Yarra Valley Arts | Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition & Awards

27 FEBRUARY — 3 APRIL (INDOOR) 26 APRIL (OUTDOOR)
Yering Station’s iconic annual sculpture exhibition traditionally shows in spring as flowers begin forming on newly awakened vines.
Owing however to the significant challenges of past years, the long awaited 20th anniversary of the Yarra Valley Arts | Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition & Awards will now be celebrated in autumn 2022.
For the first time in the event’s history, the exhibition will coincide with harvest at the winery, with artworks arriving as bunches ripen and picking begins.
The Opening and Presentation of Awards is scheduled for 27 February, when the crushing, fermenting and barrelling is well underway.
So as the estate’s rolling vineyards slowly turn from green to gold, we invite you to explore the contemporary gardens and architecture of Yering Station and the historically significant gardens of Chateau Yering Hotel, across which sculptures by established and emerging Australian artists will be on display.
All sculptures are for sale – so you may well find that special piece for your own home and garden – and commissions on sculpture sales are donated to My Room Children’s Cancer Charity and Yarra Valley Arts, towards the support of community arts events in the region.
Also taking place in the Yarra Valley in autumn will be an Indoor Sculpture Exhibition at YAVA Gallery and Arts Hub in Healesville, the annual Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges Open Studios, while collaborative duo Wona Bae and Charlie Lawler from Melbourne’s Loose Leaf Studios will bring their immersive, organic, concept-driven art to Yering Station’s historic winery.
And keep an eye out for links to the Arnold Bloch Leibler Sculpture Exhibition. A stalwart Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition sponsor and supporter since 2005, Arnold Bloch Leibler’s concurrent Sculpture Exhibition will be  showing online across the length of the show at Yering Station.
So we invite you to join us in the Yarra Valley for a special autumn of Art and Wine!
