Inside and Out

Being such a huge fan of Art Deco, I need to mention that it's the opening weekend of the 'Edward Steichen & Art Deco Fashion' exhibition at the NGV - National Gallery of Victoria - and really, it's a marriage made in heaven for me with both art and fashion showing until 2 March 2014.  Steichen's photographs of the most glamorous fashion from the 1920s and 30s taken for Vanity Fair and Vogue will be on show and I can't wait to go and see it.

Also on this weekend is the Practically Green Festival: Eco building and lifestyle which is a free family event held from 10am - 4.30pm at Edendale Community Environment Farm in Gastons Road Eltham.
As part of this event, the Nillumbik Mudbrick Association is also running the Eltham Mudbrick Tour leaving from Montsalvat this Sunday showcasing five mudbrick buildings including the former home of environmental architect and builder Alistair Knox.

Finally, Open Cellars of Nillumbik is also on this weekend with 13 different different boutique wineries involved.  If the weekend is as beautiful as today, then it will make for a picture perfect driving tour.  Have a great weekend!
