A new free exhibition at Montsalvat will showcase significant works in the Nillumbik Shire Council’s Art, Civic and Public Art collections, as well as old favourites and more recent acquisitions.

Local|Remix, opens on Friday 8 April and considers what art and artefacts can tell us about place and perceptions of local identity.

This exhibition features pieces from such internationally renowned artists such as Julia deVille, Clifton Pugh, Myra Skipper and Vipoo Srivilasa, as well as exciting emerging artists such as Nicholas Currie.

Importantly the exhibition highlights the work of women artists. Often overlooked in accolades, the contribution of women artists to the Shire is significant and many works in the collection highlight their strong artistic practice.

In a direct response to a recent gender audit of the Nillumbik Shire Art Collection register and to promote the under representation of women artists, this exhibition flips the statistics of the current collection and presents an exhibition featuring more than 60 percent women artists.
