'In the Valley' is an exhibition that highlights the beauty and fragility of our natural environment on the Mornington Peninsula. Observing and documenting the changing landscape of the Kangerong Basin, Mt Martha, Somers and Port Phillip Bay, artists Rosie Weiss, Jean Langley, Merryn Lloyd, Christine Lloyd, Michael Favaloro and Siri Hayes reveal their personal connections to the landscape, and the strong links to place that exists across generations.
This exhibition is presented as part of CLIMARTE’s ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2019 - a festival of curated exhibitions and events which provides a platform for the discussion of the challenges, opportunities, impacts, and solutions associated with climate change.
This project coincides with the Mornington Peninsula Shire moving towards zero net carbon emissions across all its operations by 2021 and supporting long-term climate change resilience across the community.
Exhibition dates: 2 March – 5 May 2019
