Four x Four @ McClelland

In support of the local art industry which has been doing it tough through the COVID lockdown, McClelland has developed a quick response initiative with some commercial galleries and their artists.

Four x Four @ McClelland is a 3-day special project exhibition with four galleries presenting four Victorian-based artists in the Sarah & Baillieu Myer Education Pavilion, an extensive space at McClelland which cannot currently be used for education programs due to restrictions.

The participating galleries are: Sophie Gannon Gallery, THIS IS NO FANTASY, Daine Singer and MARS Gallery.

The artists represented are: Sophia Hewson, Jenna Lee, Penelope Davis, Meagan Streader, Celia Gullett, Fiona McMonagle, Judith Wright, Ember Fairbairn, Kirsty Budge, Benjamin Prabowo Sexton, Kate Tucker, Matt Arbuckle, Juan Ford, Petrina Hicks, Michael Cook and Victoria Reichelt.

Special Hours of opening for Four x Four @ McClelland will be – 11:00am to 5:00pm, from Friday 10 December through to Sunday 12 December with outdoor refreshments, seating and bookable Café Dining available throughout the weekend.

Sunday Soirées

Due Covid-19 restrictions this event has been deferred to 2022

A new series of Sunday Soirée music performances will be held at McClelland featuring professional performers from across Victoria.

To be held in the Sarah & Baillieu Myer Education Pavilion at McClelland, the Sunday Soirées will be a great way to enjoy an afternoon where art and music will come together with a selection of house made food and locally produced wines.

The McClelland Sunday Soirée music series is a wonderful combination of music and art and has been made possible by the generous support of McClelland’s Patron Baillieu Myer AC and Igor and Jenny Zambelli as well as our new association with hospitality partner Homes and Acreage.
