Beyond the city: Art from the suburban studio

17 April 2013-25 May 2013, 10.00 am-4.00 pm


Melbourne Burwood Campus

Exhibition at Deakin University Art Gallery, Melbourne Burwood Campus. Too often when we think of artists we imagine them in the centre of the CBD surrounded by the bustle of the central city area and yet global concerns and themes don't just occupy the art of the city artist. They also inform and shape the thoughts and processes of the artist working alone in their suburban studio. See the miscellenay of art created across the City of Whitehorse in this surprising exhibition.
