Southern Buoy Studios’ dedication to creation and curation flows from years of collective experience. Co-founders Micah and Bern have gathered a wealth of talent around them to offer art devotees a space where ideas happen.
At just two years old, Southern Buoy Studios has already pressed its artistic footprint deeply within the Peninsula’s art scene. At the heart of the space are eight artists producing diverse work, while a series of stellar exhibitions provide art lovers with expressively fresh alternatives.
The thought-provoking exhibition Walk in Someone Else’s Shoes, where selected artists and writers have created work on thongs for mesmerising metaphorical and literal liaison, runs from July 14-August 3. As passionate supporters of the plight of refugees, all proceeds of an art auction will be donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.
At the end of August, ink in Southern Buoy’s inaugural Peninsula Landscape Exhibition. Opening with a gala night on August 31 with beverage and food aplenty, this exhibition celebrates the Mornington Peninsula terrain, whether it be land, sea or township. Online submissions are open until July 31. The exhibition runs until September 30 and five works will be selected for postcard presentation to be circulated in relevant areas. The judge is Australian landscape artist Jenny Riddle.
If that’s not enough, check out Southern Buoy’s school holiday workshops in July and the Stencil Art Prize exhibition in December. This is the sole Victorian gallery to hang this pivotal body of work. Simply buoyant.
