LANEWAY GAL­LERIES UN­DER SPOTLIGHT

- SALLY BEN­NETT

TAKE an art­walk down Flin­ders Lane next week when a spe­cial event shines a light on gal­leries in the city hotspot.

Ever pop­u­lar with food­ies, the fa­mous laneway is also home to eight ex­hi­bi­tion spa­ces, which will stay open late for Nite Art on July 23.

Event founder Deb­o­rah Stahle says Night Art, now in its third year, aims to draw wor­thy at­ten­tion to a con­cen­tra­tion of gal­leries show­ing the work of “many and var­ied” tal­ented artists.

Flin­ders Lane Gallery in­vites visi­tors to ex­pe­ri­ence works as they are be­ing cre­ated, with artists Jon Eise­man and Josh Rob­bins start­ing new pieces.

At Karen Wood­bury Gallery, prom­i­nent Aus­tralian artist Philip Wolfha­gen will present Other Worlds, a new col­lec­tion of land­scapes inspired by the artist’s ex­pe­ri­ences in Tas­ma­nia’s Skull­bones Plains.

In to­tal, the works of more than 10 artists will be shown across pho­tog­ra­phy, video, paint­ings and site-re­spon­sive in­stal­la­tions.

The other gal­leries in­volved are: Blind­side ARI, Chin Chin Wall of Art, CAVES gallery, Stephen McLaugh­lan gallery, Mur­ray White Room and Chap­ter House Lane.
