What's On Mornington Peninsula | August 9, 2019
It's going to be a great weekend to be indoors or somewhere warm! Good thing the Peninsula still has a variety of great activities to do when the weather is a little on the colder side. Here's some ideas for this Winter weekend...
Share the Warmth @ Peninsula Hot Springs 140 Springs Lane, Fingal
Do you have a friend who could really use a relaxing soak in the springs? Mental health is a cause close to our hearts at the springs, which is why we partner with Mentis Assist and Mental Health Australia - two organisations that provide specialised mental health support for people living with a mental illness. Our Share the Warmth campaign starts on Monday, July 22 and invites you to bring a friend experiencing stress or mental health challenges with you to the Bath House during off peak periods, free of charge. All you need to do is create a booking online for two people during off peak periods (Monday - Friday, outside of school and public holidays) and use the promo code sharethewarmth19 at checkout, following your visit you will be requested to complete a short survey to tell us about your experience. Limited spaces available. To book - visit the Peninsula Hot Springs website and don't forget to enter the promo code. VISIT THE SITE HERE
Clay Stories: Contemporary Indigenous Ceramics from remote Australia @ Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Civic Reserve, Dunns Rd, Mornington
Clay Stories is a significant survey exhibition of contemporary artworks in ceramics that have been created by both highly established and emerging Indigenous artists in remote parts of regional Australia. The exhibition presents pieces that are both sculptural and vessel-based, with each body of work representative of the artist's connection to Country and as a strong medium for storytelling.
Sabbia Gallery have worked closely with the Ernabella Arts ceramics studio since 2011 and have held a number of highly successful and comprehensive exhibitions with many of their finest ceramic artists in that time. In conjunction with the Remote Communities Ceramic Network (RCCN), this touring exhibition further demonstrates the innovative artwork being made in ceramics by the diverse group of artists from across Australia; Ernabella Arts in the APY Lands, Erub Arts in the Torres Strait, Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre in Far North Queensland, Hermannsburg Potters in the Central Desert and Tiwi Design on Bathurst Island. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia program.
Steel: Art Design Architecture - A Jam Factory touring exhibition @Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery Civic Reserve, Dunns Rd, Mornington
STEEL: art design architecture is a major exhibition exploring innovative ways that steel is being used by artists, designers and architects in Australia in the 21st century.
The exhibitors represent a broad range of approaches to working with steel - from fine, hand-crafted jewellery to high-tech research facilities. The exhibition reveals many of the concerns that drive innovative uses of steel, engaging themes of identity, locality, materiality and sustainability. A material of such great potential, steel influences nearly all aspects of our lives, rendering the ingenuity, craftsmanship and skill of those working with it practically invisible.
