@Dog Rocks is developing as an interdisciplinary art site open for creative work and events.
Situated on the edge of mesmerizing natural Dog Rocks reserve, a haunting indigenous site, the property includes large open landscape and garden areas, purpose-built studio gallery, and workshop zones.
Visual art, new media, sound, writing, dance, and any other creative practitioners are welcome to explore these very inspiring surroundings.
With breath-taking mosaic studio walls, garden installations and numerous features @Dog Rocks is literally an embodiment of creative rigour – the work by artist Michael Morgan (www.michaelmorganartist.com) for whom @Dog Rocks is also the base for experimentation in video and the production of his epic interdisciplinary project series – Impermanent Vessels (www.impermanentvessels.com).
If you are a creative or group willing to inspire @Dog Rocks, exchange creative energies, explore the nature, hold a workshop or gathering, or develop your project in this unique site, talk to Michael by contacting him on 0418 524 167.
