Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery (MPRG) has fabulous new exhibitions on display over summer, as well as a series of children's workshops, events and more.

Front Beach, Back Beach (FBBB) was an ambitious public art project that took place across the Mornington Peninsula in November. The exhibition component of FBBB transports objects, ideas and documentation of the 15 projects back into the gallery. Bringing together the diverse communities, cultures and landscapes of the townships and regions between the Mornington Peninsula's front and back beaches, FBBB located contemporary public artworks within the landscape. Now Front Beach, Back beach has been transported indoors to MPRG where the ‘voyage’ continues for more visitors to enjoy.

The third iteration of the Collection+ exhibition series pairs the internationally renowned British artist Julian Opie with the work of Melbourne artist Judith Alexandrovics. Within this unlikely combination, we can see common threads throughout their work, both artists observing and thoughtfully documenting people in the landscape, particularly groups of people in the urban environment, which is the main thematic focus for this exhibition.

MPRG also has some fantastic collection works on display by G.W. Bot, Locust Jones and David Larwill. A number of these works have been recently donated to the collection.

There are school holiday workshops coming up in January, including painting your own sneakers and create a soft sculpture inspired by artist Hiromi Tango. They also have a VCE workshop with artist Vera Moller and a workshop for VCE students to give them a head start for the year.

Head to their website to find out more about exhibitions and events.
