Opening soon

Lurid and luminescent, the Magic Object Studio lures art lovers of all ages.

Inspired by the work of Melbourne based artist Kate Rohde, visitors to The Studio will contribute to a wall of hypercolour patterning made under black light.

Early years and primary school groups will encounter the magic of mathematics as they explore shapes, repetition and pattern, while secondary students collaborate to make their own hypercoloured sculptures.

Kate Rohdes's work for Magic Object will be on view in the Gallery's Vestibule where Rohde entices us into a world in which brave colour and vivid pattern go viral.

When Open daily from Friday 26 February, 10am – 4.45pm daily (may be in use by booked school groups  on weekdays 10am-2.30pm)
