Following on from two hugely successful Art in the Vines sculpture exhibitions in 2018/19 and 2019/20, Hanging Rock Winery is pleased to announce a new exhibition for the 2020/21 season.
Presenting Art in the Vines – The Renaissance.
Scheduled to commence in late October, Art in the Vines will again be an exceptional exhibition of outdoor sculpture.
Renowned Exhibition Curator, Malcolm Thomson - who for the third consecutive year has been engaged to deliver Art in the Vines, is working with 25 to 30 local, national and international artists on the exhibition. These are predominantly highly acclaimed artists - leaders in their field, a strong contingent of which reside in the Macedon Ranges and Central Victoria.
The timing of the exhibition will align with our re-emergence as a society from the challenging times we currently find ourselves in. It was indeed these unprecedented times that inspired us to shift the focus of this year’s exhibition from what was originally intended.
So, in determining our theme for 2020/21, with COVID-19, self-isolation, quarantine and social distancing currently dominating our day-to-day lives, Malcolm is now inviting the artists to create sculptures that either reflect and capture these challenging times or alternatively focus on the future direction of their work – in essence, their renaissance.
Just as Art in the Vines – Sculpture Exhibition and Trail, and Art in the Vines – Sculpture in Motion were, Art in the Vines – The Renaissance will yet again be an extraordinary exhibition of sculpture, staged at a venue that has fast established itself as the home of sculpture in the Macedon Ranges.
Time to start planning your escape? What’s better than a guided wine tasting from the region’s largest selection, then walking the sculpture trail glass in hand before kicking back and treating yourself to one of our picnic boxes or cheeseboards and taking in the Macedon Ranges’ most iconic vista. Bliss!
Art in the Vines at Hanging Rock Winery is the perfect destination to fill a weekend, and the perfect drawcard to build a short-break around.
