Event Details

An exhibition bringing together the talent of eleven local artists for one night only at Boomtown Wine.

Kindred is the culmination of the Introduction to Professional Arts Practice course, the first of its kind run by the Castlemaine Community House. Local artists with varied backgrounds and experience came together over the nine-week course to gain an introductory understanding of the intricacies of being a professional artist.

On display are works including printmaking, sculpture, mixed media and digital presentations through the PechaKucha platform.

Course co-facilitators Helen Kelly and Zoe Amor bring many years of professional arts experience as makers, producers, directors and curators. The course covered a broad range of topics, covering: presenting work to the public including commercial gallery representation and non-traditional options; marketing and promotion, including writing artist statements, CVs and biographies; and business skills such as record keeping, taxation and copyright.

Host Details

A Winemaking Co-operative…. Boomtown is a shared winemaking space established at The Mill, Castlemaine in January 2015 and is home to Minim Wine, Analog, Jeffrey Wine and Puta Bida. We make our own wines together, sharing equipment and ideas, and make a small range of simple, local wines under the Boomtown label. Boomtown is a place for young and aspiring winemakers to make a start on their own wines, contribute their own ideas and learn about Central Victorian wines. Our cellar door is open Friday nights in summer for reckless good times and weekend days for more serious wine business.  Boomtown winery is located on Dja Dja Wurrung country. The Djaara (Dja Dja Wurrung people) have lived on these lands and cared for this country over many thousands of years. We acknowledge and offer our respect and deep gratitude to the traditional owners of the lands on which we farm and work.
