Going on a road trip this summer? (Norther Highway takes you from Melbourne up to Echuca) Needing to stop off for a cuppa and to stretch your legs? Visit a local gallery – probably one on the main street in amongst the cafes.
Heathcote – Mudwood Studio
This studio supports a range of local artists and so has a variety of works to entertain and inspire – sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography and more. Susie Marcroft sculptor and gallery owner will happily chat with you about the inspiration and aims of her works.
Rochester – SILO ART
This is not a studio it is art in public spaces – making something amazing out of something very ordinary. In the interest of driver safety pull over to check out the Silo Art – giant murals painted on the exterior of two silos in the centre of the town. Artist Jimmy DVat has apparently travelled the world creating his gigantic artworks.
Echuca – Alton Art Gallery & the Holden Museum
