The Stony Rises Project


Saturday, May 07, 2011 - Sunday, June 26, 2011, -


Admission: Free


Ten contemporary artists and designers share their vision of the rich, layered histories of Victoria's Western District which is distinguished by the basalt rocks erupting from the landscape forming Stony Rises, as well as volcanic cones and crater lakes.  The exhibition focuses on the histories of the area, the intricate relationships of people with place, foreigners on new lands, and colonial and Indigenous narratives.

The Stony Rises Project is a project of NETS Victoria, the peak body for visual arts touring in the state of Victoria which provides opportunities for regional communities to access and engage with the best contemporary art, craft and design.
