Between the Lines by Open Canvas at fortyfivedownstairs - 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, is an art exhibition running from 7 to 18 February 2017. Admission is free and operating hours are Tue - Fri, 11am to 5pm, and Sat, 12pm to 4pm. The official opening is on Tue 7 Feb from 5pm to 7pm.

Featuring a selection of works from artists who have experienced issues relating to homelessness, disabilities and other adversities, the stories between the lines are the inspiration for this collection. Works include playful sketches, sculptures and intricate studies. It ranges from desert dreamings and space creatures to humpback whales and city scenes.


The exhibition is an initiative of Open Canvas, a socially focused organisation helping artists to exhibit and sell their art. The hard work started from the ground up with fundraising and it's still ongoing till 28 January, so check out this crowdfunded campaign and see if you can help in any way. Find out more about Open Canvas, and their quest to empower disadvantaged artists. Buying from them makes a positive impact on the lives of these artists.

Stay updated on their Facebook page and go to the website to shop for some incredible art. Choose from a range of original art, art prints, posters, sculptures, cards, puzzles, tea towels, gift cards, phone cards and more, and get to know the artists.
