Yinnar ARI

While visiting the La Trobe Valley I visited ARC Yinnar purportedly the oldest artist run initiative or space in Australia! It’s located in the small and charming town of Yinnar, and occupies a large rambling building that was once the local butter factory. The gallery is open 6 days a week, run by local volunteers and houses all sorts of facilities and equipment and studio spaces for artists. We were given a quick tour of the building and shown the ceramic studio with oven,  printing room with old presses, a photographic dark room and lots more. I was really impressed. The current exhibition, FRAGMENTS a show of textiles by the Fibre Artists Network was a great treat. Some really lovely, creative and bold pieces on show.
