Top Arts is arguably Victoria’s premier art accolade for young artists completing their VCE in Art or Studio Arts studies. For the last two decades years, a handful of entrants have been selected from across the state to exhibit their work in Victoria’s biggest and most prestigious gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria. This year, […]

HOT: Food Safari Picnic, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2014, O’Connell Reserve Richmond and Herring Island

For the next few weeks there will be lots of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival event reviews on the blog. First up is the delightful Food Safari Picnic that happened on the weekend. I was invited as a guest of Yarra City Council and didn’t really know what to expect. And for a first-time go […]

Melbourne Now is National Gallery of Victoria’s exhibition celebrating the latest art, architecture, design, performance and cultural practice of creative Melbourne. It spans both NGV International and NGV Australia and you’ll need lots of time to visit both.

HOT: Designing 007 – 50 Years of Bond Style, Melbourne Museum, Nicholson St, Carlton

Designing 007 – 50 years of Bond Style is Melbourne Museum‘s showcase James Bond exhibition for the summer. And if you don’t want to share the space with gawping noisy kids then I recommend heading to the museum on Friday nights when the exhibition is open for adults only, with special location themed nights, martini […]

HOT: Modern Love, Bendigo Art Gallery, 42 View St, Bendigo

Are you heading out of town for the Australia Day long weekend? If you haven’t made plans to escape the city yet then I highly recommend taking a day trip or overnight stay in Bendigo. It’s the last week of Bendigo Art Gallery‘s amazing fashion exhibition, Modern Love , which closes on Sunday 2 February. In […]

HOT: Brickvention 2014, Royal Exhibition Building, 9 Nicholson St, Carlton

As a 30-something female I am probably not the main target market for Lego. But I think if you’ve had a Lego-filled childhood then the appeal of these little plastic bricks outlasts your school years. I kept my plastic crate of Lego despite moving interstate, overseas and in and out of many share houses and now my own kids […]

HOT: Farren Bicycles Collection, 131 Brighton St, Richmond

I first met Paul and Charlie Farren on a Melbourne Tweed Ride when they turned up with a coterie of gasp-inducing vintage steeds (and dressed in 19th century cycling garb and tweed as well). Paul told me that these beautiful bicycles were part of a private collection of over a hundred rare and unique vintage […]

HOT: Third Drawer Down, 93 George St, Fitzroy

Third Drawer Down is Melbourne’s home of kook. And giant objects. I often take visitors to Third Drawer Down‘s curated selection of the ‘best of’ museum shops as it’s easy to miss if you’re not looking for it. The small store is a Pandora’s box of fun, useful and not-so-useful products, some designed in house and […]

The Barons Palate – Giveaway!

I love a good pop up! Especially when the experience combines food and drinks with cutting edge art and design. The Baron Said is a warehouse event space in Fitzroy which derives its name from a historical character created by Sir Martin Lang, a scholar and nobleman who produced literary works in the 18th century. In keeping with […]
