Over the weekend of 26-28 March, Albert Park Village will be transformed into an outdoor art gallery with sculptures exhibited in the windows of participating retailers and artists' artworks enlarged and printed on boards erected in the parks and on residential fences along the route. Audiences will be able to meander the length of Victoria Avenue to Bridport Street at their own self guided pace, or join one of the many guided walks and talks throughout the weekend “ all while maintaining the physical distancing that keeps us all safe.

The idea came to Albert Park artist Carolyn Menzies while walking the deserted boarded-up streets of her local village during lockdown. What I missed most during the lockdown was connecting with other artists but what I really appreciated was reconnecting with my neighbours and local retailers. With a grant from the City of Port Phillip and sponsorship from local estate agents Greg Hocking, I created Albert Park Art Walk as an exhibition opportunity for artists and a way of giving something beautiful and joyful to the neighbourhood.

Now that the dark days of the lockdown are behind us, Carla O'Brien, the artist responsible for creating the infamous masked Quarantrees that kept us all amused during the lockdown, is exhibiting some of her joyful neon art pieces, reflecting the more optimistic tone in the city these days.

Featuring Melbourne Artists Kitty Calvert, Carolyn Menzies, Hayley Millar-Baker, Kent Morris, Josh Muir, Carla O'Brien, Julie Ramsden, Janita Ryan, Tania Samuel, Josh Simpson, Tinky and Troy Mendham the Albert Park Art Walk Weekend promises to be a beautiful gentle reawakening of the local art scene.
