I explored River Studios on their recent open day. River Studios used to be a vacant warehouse in West Melbourne which has been repurposed to house studios for 75 artists. What a great initiative by the City of Melbourne, Arts Vic and Creative Spaces. I loved peaking into the workspaces of each artist and talking to them about their practice. I particularly fell in love with this peg curtain that artist Louise Lavarack created using 5000 wooden pegs. Isn’t it amazing how a bland everyday object can be turned into a piece of beauty and movement.
