Enjoy canapés and a glass of wine while experiencing the exhibition with other art lovers. The artists and curators will be on hand to talk about the artworks.  About the exhibitions Sounds Like. Appealing to our ears rather than our eyes, sound art challenges us to experience art through the act of listening. Although materially elusive and invisible, sound can engage us, move us and expand our imagination. Sounds Like. brings together five Australian artists who use sound as the principal vehicle for the production of meaning in their works. Through immersive installation, sculpture and performance, this interactive exhibition explores the use of sound as a medium for artistic expression. Featuring: Roger Alsop, Vicky Browne, Megan Alice Clune, Julian Day and Camille Robinson. Tonal Modernism by Steven Szcebiot Steven Szczebiot’s paintings give a nod to the technique of tonal realism, brought to Melbourne in 1912 by Australian artist Max Meldrum after an extensive period of study in Europe. Szczebiot’s style adheres to the tonal realist principle of painting from life, thereby creating space for a lengthy, meditative engagement between the painter and his subject. Works in this exhibition include still-life studies, figurative works and urban-landscape paintings combining to form a stirring depiction of the streets of Boroondara and everything held within them. , City of Boroondara [email protected] Australia/Melbourne public

Tonal Modernism by Steven Szcebiot

Steven Szczebiot’s paintings give a nod to the technique of tonal realism, brought to Melbourne in 1912 by Australian artist Max Meldrum after an extensive period of study in Europe.

Szczebiot’s style adheres to the tonal realist principle of painting from life, thereby creating space for a lengthy, meditative engagement between the painter and his subject. Works in this exhibition include still-life studies, figurative works and urban-landscape paintings combining to form a stirring depiction of the streets of Boroondara and everything held within them.
