Modern love

Get me to the church on time...modern love.  It's not only a great name for a song, it's also the name of the exhibition currently showing at Bendigo Art Gallery which I am hoping to visit again next year some time and they have had some blockbuster shows with a leaning towards fashion over the past few years.

Closer to home, the Darebin Art Show at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre starts tomorrow and runs until 16 February next year.  It is an acquisitive biennial visual arts and craft show with awards to the value of $10,000 as well as a People's Choice award open to local artists who live, work or learn in the Darebin municipality.

And speaking of modern, the Robin Boyd Foundation is holding a Public Open Day on Sunday 8 December showcasing six 'Courtyard Houses' designed for inner city sites with the closest one being 'White Lodge' in Camberwell - tours are self-guided and tickets need to be pre-purchased - this is one for modern architecture and design lovers.  While I'm on the topic, architecture and design writer Stephen Crafti takes four Architour tours per year as well as customised, private tours if you are so inclined.  Closer to home, if you're a lover of mid century architecture check out local interior designer Renae Barass' blog Banyule Modern.  She is due to pop out a baby soon, so it may be a little while between updates.

I'll be back tomorrow with some weekend happenings.
