One of the many things we love about Melbourne life is its brimming creative community. It's normally a never ending list of art openings, live music gigs and theatre, in fact too much to do!
I'm sure like us, you are missing them at the moment but we are energised about still being able to engage with them and even support them.
Many local galleries from small to large are creating ways that we can still 'see' their exhibitions and learn about their artists.
Adam Stone from LON Gallery in Collingwood has created a video 'walk through' of the current exhibition at his space on Easey Street. Titled For And Against Classicism it features the work of Peta Petrakis and Ryan Hancock which you can watch here.
The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) have created some fantastic virtual tours of their current exhibitions including Keith Haring + Jean-Michel Basquiat: Crossing Lines and Collecting Comme which you can see here.
Check in with your favourite galleries online and see what they're up to. Don't be afraid to email them for a catalogue. Even if you can't buy anything, they will value your support.
Painting featured is by emerging Melbourne artist Julia Trybala.

Anna Worthington - Stylist at Arnsdorf
What are you doing to stay active?
I'm attempting a 30 min run every day, as well as some light weights, bouncing on a trampoline and yoga. If all else fails, I'm going for a walk in an outfit that cheers me up.
Are you reading a great book or do you have a favourite podcast?
I'm trying to finish the book "A Short History of Myth" by Karen Armstrong. It's pretty illuminating and helpful in understanding our modern society's ideals and values and the ways we perceive reality compared to our ancestors.
What about food. Are you cooking or are you addicted to a particular snack at the moment?
Nothing much has changed for me! Just no steaks at the Fitzroy Town Hall or roo from Napier Hotel. Devastating.
Are you motivated to 'dress' for the day or are you repeating outfits? What are your go-to pieces?
I'm actually LOVING this side of isolation. I'm wearing things that I just haven't found the time or place to wear for the last while but still loved and didn't want to sell or give away. I'm taking pictures of my outfits and sharing to my insta mostly for my own sanity and to document this strange time in visual form. Occasionally I get a comment and it makes me smile and feel connected to the outside world again. Clothes are a language for me. I guess I've been using them as a way to connect to fond memories and maintain a sense of "normality".
I'm going for the more relaxed cuts of jeans, tees, blouses, cardigans. I've been living in Birkenstocks when I've headed out, which I honestly never thought I would become THAT person. Ha ha. Meanwhile my cowboy boots are collecting dust. I'm not wearing nearly as much black, which used to be my go-to.
Have you been pleasantly surprised by engaging in something you normally wouldn't?
Yes! I use my balcony way more now. Going out there when the sun is shining feels like a treat. I've started staring at the sky a lot more and listening to the quiet.
What songs are you feeling right now?
Listen to my Spotify playlist here.
Hope that you get a virtual visit from the Easter Beagle!
Stay well, from all of us at Arnsdorf X
