Over morning tea and a two course lunch at the popular Wild Oak Restaurant, both artists will speak about their personal journeys with art and will be able to answer questions and promote further discussion.

Mitchell will aim to talk about his experience in painting and traveling around Italy, his recent exhibition in Bologna, and his current show at [MARS] gallery, Port Melbourne. Antonio will talk about his art school, his style of art and the opportunities of both travel and art in Italy. Both artists are great talkers and have a very easy manner, and will be happy to talk about pasta, wine and music – in Italian or in English.
