St Michael’s, in an exciting new venture, is partnering with the renowned fortyfivedownstairs Gallery to launch The Community Art Card Project. This initiative invites students, families, staff, artists, and the broader Melbourne community to participate in a collaborative art-making experience using large playing cards as their canvas.
The project is spearheaded by Mr Robert Lee Davis, a practicing artist and Visual Arts teacher at St Michael’s. Mr Davis, along with students from the School, will facilitate the project, which will culminate in an installation at the fortyfivedownstairs Gallery.
The exhibition will run from 31 October – 11 November. Over this two-week period, the gallery walls will gradually fill with artworks from contributors. A closing reception on Friday 10 November will provide an opportunity for all to appreciate the full scope of the artworks created.
All members of the St Michael’s community are warmly invited to visit the Gallery, create an art piece or simply enjoy the works on display. The Gallery is located at 45 Flinders Lane in Melbourne and is open Tuesday to Friday from 12pm – 7pm and Saturday from 12 – 4pm.
