There Used To Be A Canopy Here | Cathy Ronalds

Fri 29 Jul - Sat 27 Aug | Burrinja Gallery

It has been over a year since the June 9th storm tore across our mountain through the night, destroying homes and felling large swathes of bush. Seeing such devastation to the bush I love so dearly and hearing the stories of terror and near death experiences in our community was distressing. 

I felt compelled to create a series depicting the devastation we felt to honour both our collective trauma and the bush.

A year later, the removal of fallen trees continues. Those who know this mountain well are familiar with the eerie feeling: there used to be a canopy here.

Music score: Edward Willoughby

Performing artist: Gretel Taylor

Join us for the opening on Thu 28 July @ 6.30pm ~ RSVP HERE

& Kerri Hollingsworth

Fri 29 Jul - Sat 27 Aug | Burrinja Gallery

The loss of an estimated 25000 trees during the June 2021 storm has impacted all of us. Our collective grief of the enormous gaps left in our landscape is something which connects us all.

Artists Kerri Hollingsworth and Bronwyn Ward explore this loss by creating fibre sculptures to hold and protect their memory. The artists imagined a forest where all is present apart from our lost trees. They have painstakingly woven, latch hooked and wound natural fibres into tactile sculptures. Incorporating works made with community over conversations of the disaster impact as part of Yarra Ranges Council’s Art Attack program.

You are invited to wander amongst the spaces in between and reflect on your own experience of loss and change. Participate by weaving found natural materials in a communal nature weave to pay homage to our lost trees. Kerri and Bronwyn hope these works will encourage you to contemplate what we have lost and how we can become a more resilient community in the future.

This exhibition has been supported by Yarra Ranges Council Art Attack program. 

Join us for the opening on Thu 28 July @ 6.30pm ~ RSVP HERE

Eucalypts | Victoria Watts

Fri 29 Jul - Sat 20 Aug | Burrinja Gallery

Through the fallen leaves and branches I wander, in search of a perfect composition, a view to evoke the atmosphere of the Australian bush; its peeping and twinkling sunlight, tweeting birds and the subtle crackling of undergrowth and bark under foot. These works honour our Eucalypts, spawned from visits to State Parks in Victoria and National Parks in Tasmania over the past decade which harken back to earlier memories of growing up in a rural township, the height of weekend enjoyment being a day trip and picnic amongst the towering gums.

Join us for the opening on Thu 28 July @ 6.30pm ~ RSVP HERE

Dreamscapes | Eamon Wyss

6 Aug – 10 Sep | aerie gallery

Dreaming stories found naturally in the landscape

‘Dreamscapes’ is a collection of dreaming stories found naturally in the landscape - a series of un-manipulated drone photography of ephemeral salt lakes in Victoria, purposely composed from the air to emulate abstract paintings.

The main inspiration for these works comes from aboriginal dot-paintings Eamon encountered in the Australian desert as a boy, which use both topographical and symbolic communication of the landscape to tell a story.

Join us for the exhibition opening Sat 6 Aug @ 11am ~ RSVP HERE
Eamon Wyss will be giving an Artist Talk on Sat 20 Aug @ 11am ~ RSVP HERE

Harbour Agency Presents

The Whitlams ~
Black Stump Band

Sun 14 Aug @ 7.00pm | Burrinja Theatre

The Whitlams' alt-country offshoot sees Tim Freedman and drummer Terepai Richmond joined by an A-Team of country musicians. The band has 55 Gold Guitars and 10 ARIAs between them, with two CMAA Producers of the Year - Rod McCormack and Matt Fell - joined by Ollie Thorpe on pedal steel. 

This exciting new line up reconstructs The Whitlams' staples like 'No Aphrodisiac', 'Blow Up the Pokies' and  'You Sound Like Louis Burdett', plays some new originals and pulls out a batch of surprising Americana from Neil Young to Lyle Lovett. 

The Black Stump band formed in recording sessions in mid-2021, where they cut tracks that veered from campfire intimacy to rollicking country rock. They had such a good time that they decided to take the act on the road. 

The latest single "The Day John Sattler Broke His Jaw" is all over Country radio. Rhythm Magazine said the track is "the best Australian song you've never heard. Until now. The Whit/ams' country version is a revelation." 

Tickets - $58.50
Limited tickets at members price $53.50


*This show is NOT elligible to use "the one free ticket" benefit included in the Friends of Burrinja Membership.

Exhibition visit + Lunch 10.30 am (This event is for 18-25yo LGBTQI+ indentifying young people) NGV International

This exhibition of works from the NGV Collection spans historical eras and diverse media including painting, drawing, photography, decorative arts, fashion, video, sculpture, and design and explores queerness as an expression of sexuality and gender, a political movement, a sensibility, and as an attitude that defies fixed definition.

Rather than attempting to provide an definitive history of queer art, the exhibition explores the NGV Collection from a queer perspective, presenting and interpreting queer concepts and stories."

Tickets ~ Free

All My Fat Country | Rod Moss

27 Aug - 08 Oct | Burrinja Gallery

From a body of more than 200 works made during the artist's four decades of life in Mparntwe/Alice Springs, four paintings have been selected. Their themes reflect his enduring friendships with the traditional owners of town and surrounding county, the Arrernte.

Recently, Moss has returned to re-describing the local environment in graphite, the medium he favoured in his first exhibition at Hawthorn City Gallery in 1978. Then it was the suburban backyard. In the present show, its the rugged hill country at his backdoor.

Rod Moss was born in Ferntree Gully and had his first exhibition at Burrinja in 2014. He is an award-winning author of several books including The Hard Light of Day and A Thousand Cuts.

Join us for the opening Friday 26 August 6.30 pm ~ RSVP HERE

When the Forest Speaks | Liberty Finn

17 Sep - Oct 29 | aerie gallery

Liberty Wilding's visual rambles in the forest reflect inner and outer journeys of exploration and knowing. The works in this exhibition shift from hope and magical light toward a more contemplative consideration of loss and regret. The forest’s cycles of decay and growth echo her inner experience and are a reminder that we are not unique in this often jarring cyclic experience of life.

Live in the Lyre

Kerryn Fields

Fri 23 Sep @ 7.30pm | Lyre Room

Fuelled by humility, integrity and a raw clarity of vision, Kerryn Fields paints enduring musical portraits that detail the colour and feeling of everything that makes us human. 

Drawing comparisons with the likes of timeless creators, Cat Stevens, Townes Van Zandt, Joan Baez, Neil Young, and more, Fields’ trademark warmth of character - evident in both life and music - fuels a creative offering that’s equal parts captivating, refined and heartrendingly insightful. 

With one hand on guitar and the other firmly upon heart, music moved Fields through a time when chronic illness, family separations and the weight of life changes presented this artist with her biggest challenges yet. It would be her relocation to Melbourne during which Fields would settle into her most significant relationship to date: that with her newfound network of fellow career singers, songwriters and performers. Life as she’d known it would change forever. 

Newstead Live Music Festival’s Troubadour Artist of the Year (2019), winner of the MLT Songwriting Award (NZ Country Music Awards 2019) and New Zealand’s Best New Broadcaster (at age 19), Kerryn Fields has released a range of celebrated records including debut LP, Rascal (2015) and award-winning, critically acclaimed single, Mamma (2019).

Sure, her music speaks volumes. But it’s the captivating warmth and courage of this artist that really leaves the audience shining from the inside-out.

Forgotten Heroes ~ Stories and Songs from Hills Vietnam Veterans

Sat 24 Sep @ 7.30pm | Lyre Room

You’re all here for ANZAC Day, but what do people understand about Vietnam Veterans? We’re the Forgotten Heroes’ Roger Boness, Past President Mt Evelyn RSL

‘And during our rock & roll war our country forgot what they sent us for’ Forgotten Heroes song

A generation of Diggers, many conscripted through National Service, waited 12 years until a 1987 National Welcome Home Parade. Recognition of Veterans’ needs and rights, is a battle continuing to this day.

Inspired by round table conversations at local RSLs,  Forgotten Heroes ensemble proudly presents a poignant, visceral and sometimes funny live performance. 

Yarra Ranges Vietnam Veterans are live guests on stage, sharing some of their own tales, including Darryl and the exploding latrine, and what happened when Roger hung his hammock over a snake’s hole. The show shines a spotlight on how Veterans also rebuilt their lives.

Host Stephen Hall (Shaun Micallef’s Mad as Hell), singer Carl Pannuzzo (Checkerboard Lounge) and the Forgotten Heroes band, bring original songs and stories, as well as curated 70s tunes from the generation who really meant it when they sang ‘We Gotta Get Out of this Place’. Originating in 2018 as a Dandenong Ranges Music Council songwriting project, Forgotten Heroes has been developed by Artistic Director/ ASA award winning songwriter Cath Russell, in collaboration with celebrated Melbourne playwright Tes Lyssiotis.

The show also features 2 film vignettes created by the Forgotten Heroes ensemble in 2021, funded by Dept Vets Affairs. Archival footage is provided by the National Vietnam Veterans Museum, with additional material generously loaned by the Running Rabbit Military Museum at Upwey Belgrave RSL.

Proudly funded by Yarra Ranges Council

Welcoming  Veterans of any generation, those who know and love them and those who are new to their stories.

Barbaroi

Thu 13 Oct @ 7.30pm | Burrinja Theatre

A dystopian cyberpunk world in the not-too-distant future. Gangs overrun the neon-clad streets, the outcasts rule the pitch-black forgotten ruins of an old district. There is chaos, there is danger in the shadows. There is a Showdown happening downtown; a lone wanderer stumbles amongst a crew of meta-human misfits, the Barbaroi.

Will they have what it takes to be one of them?

This is do or die, this is their initiation. Inspired by a world of shadows where anything goes and the gritty underbelly of society, Barbaroi is a blend of high-octane circus, cabaret theatre. Complimented by finely tuned lighting and soundtrack, this show will lead audiences down the rabbit-hole and asking, ‘Who are the Barbaroi?

Burrinja in Motion

Thu 17 - Sat 19 Nov | Burrinja

A three day mini festival of dance, featuring live performance, film screenings, interactive workshops, dancing in the dark, exhibitions and a curated food experience.

For three days in November, Burrinja comes alive with the dancing body: in motion, sensing, in action and in place.

The human body articulates quite unlike any other form of communication. From the purely physical to the playful, the abstract to the absurd, the gestural to the pedestrian, the body in motion has the capacity to communicate things we ourselves do not know yet.

Through live, screen, stage and sensory mediums, Burrinja moves is a fascinating look at the power and potential of the dancing body.
