ART FINDS A HOME IN THE VINES OF HANGING ROCK



Melbourne is home to amazing regional events and one perfect example is the Art in the Vines exhibition and trail at Hanging Rock Winery.


The first of its kind to be held in the Macedon Ranges, this inaugural event is only an hour from Melbourne.


Opening in November last year, the event is run by Hanging Rock Winery, and will run till the 31st March 2019.


Art in the Vines offers a one of kind art and winery experience, showing 25 of the most awe-inspiring outdoor sculptures, set in one of the most iconic backdrops in the Macedon Ranges. Each of these works, have been hand-crafted by leading local, national and international sculptors.


Robert Lindsay, former Senior Curator at the National Gallery of Victoria and Director of the McClelland Gallery, says the combination of factors makes for a stunning backdrop.

“Hanging Rock Winery truly is a superb venue for outdoor sculpture.”


“The calibre of renowned artists that Exhibition Curator Malcolm Thomson has secured is outstanding, making Art in the Vines a must-see attraction in the Macedon Ranges,” Mr Lindsay says.



Commencing at the cellar door, visitors are invited to start their experience by tasting some of Hanging Rock’s award-winning wines and view the stunning works on offer. A series of workshops with renowned painters, Brigit Heller and Helen Cottle will also be held in February.


Visitors will also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite sculpture in the Peoples’ Choice Award, and to purchase a limited edition Hanging Rock Rare Tawny or Hanging Rock print by Arthur Ted Powell, each of which will be released for Art in the Vines and be available at the cellar door.
