End of year sculpture group show - Bonanza
The Yarra Sculpture Gallery (YSG) has been exhibiting contemporary sculpture for almost 2 decades. Located at 117 Vere St Abbotsford, it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Hoddle St.

YSG is an artist run initiative, run by the committee members of the Contemporary Sculptors Association.

Today I was fortunate to meet 3 artists who are exhibiting at the 2016 end of year BONANZA group exhibition. Anna Prifti the gallery manager, proudly presented her work "I form Light and create darkness". Paul Gorman's work " Home Turn : Hair Chair" is among one of my favourites. The delicate work of Helen Braun, "Untitled" is beautifully presented on glass rods and mimics nature and a winter wonderland.
