When wine and art make fine bedfellows

Montalto is well known for several reasons; primarily the excellent pinots and chardonnays crafted by Simon Black, as well as its spectacular location on the Mornington Peninsula. 

Now Montalto has partnered with the team at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery to present a new series of lunchtime events that explore artists, and their art, in a relaxed environment overlooking the Montalto Sculpture Trail. 

Each event will showcase a renowned artist in conversation as they discuss the artist’s background, inspiration, techniques and work (both completed and upcoming) over a long lunch in The Restaurant at Montalto.

On Thursday, March 24, Montalto welcomes Patricia Piccinini in conversation with Danny Lacy (Gallery Director from MPRG) for the inaugural Contemplating Art event. Piccinini is a Melbourne-based artist who produces sculptures, photographs, videos and installations.

For the second event in the series, Hiromi Tango is joined by Emma Burrows on Thursday, May 12. 

Tango is an established interdisciplinary artist, based in northern New South Wales. Emma Burrows is a neuroscientist and change agent for equity in STEM. Together, they have recently launched an exhibit, Wheel at Science Gallery Melbourne. 

Part installation, part living lab, this human-sized rainbow hamster wheel explores how physical exercise can benefit our brain and protect us against mental health conditions.

The new series complements Montalto's long-running BOOKS & IDEAS, presented in partnership with The Wheeler Centre. T

The next two events feature Stephanie Alexander (sold out) and Christos Tsiolkas (almost sold out), while the 19th season of the Montalto Sculpture Prize  runs until the end of  April. Details  here:
