On 22 July I had the pleasure of officially opening the Stony Rises Project at the RMIT Gallery. Stony Rises is an area south-east, south and south-west of Lake Corangamite, with a vast number of basalt rocks as a result of volcanic activity. The project brings together 10 contemporary artists and designers, including interpretations of various layers of narrative of the place, geology, history and literature. The exhibition is on at the RMIT Gallery until 11 September and will then tour regional Victoria. Along with a number of other people in western Victoria I look forward to the exhibition appearing in western Victoria.
