The District Makers Market, is running every Sunday from 11am-4pm until the end August along Wharf St.

You’ll find an array of hand-made and locally-produced goods, featuring some of Melbourne’s most creative and skilful artists and designers.

Plus, enjoy entertainment and shop for fine arts, crafts, jewellery, artisan goods and you may even pick up locally-grown fresh produce!

WHARF STREET OPEN NIGHT 3.0

Kick off June at Wharf Street Open Night 3.0!

The Docklands Art Collective has joined forces once again with several exhibition openings happening along Wharf St from 6pm – 9pm on Friday, June 1.

Participating groups are noted below:

AT CURRENT GALLERY

Interiority: An exhibition by Voula Christopoulos focusing on memories, dreams and the subconscious. 

CROWTHER CONTEMPORARY

Crowther Contemporary presents two solo exhibitions:

Giordano Biondi - The Composites; and Tania Matilda - Delusion of Control.

Giordano presents a series of photographic artworks produced through a digital scanner. The results are images of textured ambiguous organisms floating in a vague gravity less space. Tania’s work references the philosophy of “automatic drawings” developed by the surrealist movement, an attempt to bypass conscious thought and dig deeper into the language of the unconscious.

DODGY PAPER

Dodgy Paper presents two new shows in the showroom, by two amazing local Melbourne artists.

On one wall, TOOTH & NAIL by @jk_dngr explores the evolution of being, upholstery tacks borrowed from Bunnings, and the esoteric, dreamlike and unsettling states. 

On the other is FIXED IT by @clancyscanlan deals with how to break an artwork that is fixed and fix an artwork that is broken.

TIGER IN THE JUNGLE

Tiger in the Jungle presents Laura Blythman

MAGNET

At MAGNET@Docklands MY COUNTRY will be on during the Wharf St open night.

Don’t miss your last-chance opportunity to come and visit the exhibition of Aboriginal artworks with Neil McLeod’s portrait photographs of the artists.  

There are some very significant names among the artists whose work is showing, for example: Rover Thomas, Queenie McKenzie and Jack Dale Mengenen. Works by these artists are rarely seen outside the major galleries and auction houses so this is a fabulous chance – and not to be missed!

THE BAND PRESENTS

The Band Presents’ latest exhibition will feature 20 artists, titled: NoPlay 

TREE PAPER COMICS

Connections - Stories of the Melbourne Landscape

Melbourne is an eclectic city that embraces historical architecture alongside modern angular buildings, with an ever-evolving graffiti and cafe scene weaving its way through the middle.

Tree Paper Comics presents a group exhibition of 20 artists, exploring the ways in which people assign meaning to locations, and the ways the locations equally provide meaning to us.

TRASH PUPPETS

Naranjarte puppetry and circus, lecture and demonstration.

Visiting artists, Ana Lorite and Sergio Aguilar of Spanish puppet and circus company Naranjarte share their research, developed around the world’s schools and perform their show The Orange Box.
