GALLERY TALK Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery is currently closed to the public until further notice in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Even though the gallery doors are temporarily closed, we are continuing to share our collection, exhibitions, stories and children’s activities online. On the 1 July MPRG threw open our doors and welcomed visitors back to see our golden anniversary exhibition MPRG: FIFTY. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Gallery had to close again a week later and move its programming back online. The Gallery is excited to launch a new online platform MPRG TV, where you can watch exclusive content relating to our exhibition program. Enjoy watching a walkthrough of the new exhibition MPRG: FIFTY with Artistic Director/ Senior Curator Danny Lacy. This exhibition features dedicated collection rooms exploring historical and contemporary representations of the Mornington Peninsula and highlights the gallery’s renowned collection of works on paper that has been developed over the past 50 years. In our exhibition preview, you can also view an excerpt of a performance by the Peninsula Chamber Musicians in the Gallery performing Mozart’s Flute Quartet in D-Major, recorded prior to the lockdown.

We are premiering an artist studio conversation series on MPRG TV beginning 30 July, presenting contemporary artists from the MPRG Collection such as printmaker Raymond Arnold, painter Euan Macleod and virtual reality superstar Jess Johnson. These will be streamed weekly on a Thursday evening at 7.30pm. MPRG’s artist/educator Jill Anderson continues to inspire with her series of online creative activities for kids based on artists in MPRG’s collection. The latest activity includes creating a Danie Mellorinspired collage and paint a work on paper inspired by artists Rosie Weiss and GW Bot. Visit MPRG will also be launching a major collection publication featuring historical essays about the gallery and over 70 works reproduced from the Collection. This is available to order through our website. On behalf of all the team at MPRG, we hope that you and your loved ones continue to stay safe and together we can all get through this by looking out for each other. Stay home, stay safe and stay inspired.
