- Art Gallery -

The original Vasse Felix winery has been preserved as an Art Gallery and here, a seasonal program of exhibitions from the celebrated Holmes à Court Collection is shown. The gallery experience extends to the Vasse Felix grounds where gardens of local flora have been embellished with a sculpture walk comprising works by local artists. The annual Vasse Felix arts calendar features a variety of performance events that draw enthusiasts back to this historic space at every opportunity.

The Holmes à Court Collection started in the early 1960s and grew from the Family’s interest in Australian and Indigenous art. It has steadily developed into an internationally renowned collection that documents many pieces of Australian cultural significance and consists of more than 4,000 registered artworks.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

WORKING INTO THE LIGHT
21 September 2014 - 1 February 2015

This exhibition is a photographic record of the eighteen four-panel aluminium works measuring 2.0m x 2.0m commissioned by Central Park for their 18 lift interiors.

Brian McKay and Bevan Honey began working on the commission in March 2013, and it was completed before Brian's death in March 2014. Bo Wong photographically recorded each of the works. The eighteen photographs have been printed and mounted on aluminium and stand as a testament to the vision of both artist and commissioner.

The exhibition will include objects and ephemera from the studio and documentation illustrating the process undertaken in the production of the finished works.
