Artisan talent is where it's at, not only with the foodie community. Dench Bakers uses certified Australian organic flours and traditional European methods to create nutritious and delicious bread. Naturally, therefore, they have a taste for the good life, inviting local artists to exhibit their hand-crafted specialties in their cosy hub.

Some works by Melbourne artist, Jay Morgan


Currently exhibiting is Melbourne artist, Jay Morgan, who paints using acrylics and oils on canvas. His work ranges from abstract landscapes to figurative works with influences taken from artists such as Bruno Leti, Brett Whiteley, Fred Williams, John Waller, and Ben Quilty. The artist has employed acrylic underwork with an oil glaze for the landscape pieces, creating a luminous finish to these interesting and beautiful paintings.
