Most of us in Melbourne town have now got the Abbotsford Convent complex on our list as a place to visit, exhibit at, wander around in. The newly refurbished Mercator building which now houses some fantastic studios full of interesting creatives is hosting a Design Festival Event this Fri, Sat Sun so you you have to be committed otherwise blink and you'll miss it. Participating artists have responded to the history, architecture and spirit of the building they now call home. We are eager to see Katheryn Leopoldseders monumental work made up of plastic communion cups - irreverent maybe, beautiful definitely.
PS the Farmers Market is on there too on Saturday- be warned parking can be tough on those days so PT it if you can! RAMONA
