Seniors’ Festival Gallery Exploration
Tuesday, 3 Oct 2023. 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Senior admission $5.00
Visit both the Duldig Studio and Kinross Arts Centre, identifying works on paper across both sites in a Seniors' Festival collaboration. Now in its forty-first year, the Victorian Seniors Festival attracts over a hundred thousand seniors to get active, try something new, meet new people and sample what is on offer in their local area.
The Duldig Studio and Kinross Arts Centre have created a unique collaboration for the 2023 Victorian Seniors’ Festival. With a special discounted entry for seniors, you are invited to a special morning highlighting works on paper both in the Duldig Studio’s permanent collection and in the temporary watercolour exhibition at Kinross Arts Centre.
First join us at the Duldig Studio in East Malvern, the former home and studio of internationally recognised sculptor Karl Duldig and his wife, an artist and inventor, Slawa Horowitz-Duldig. After being welcomed with a hot beverage and slice of plum cake, you will be guided round the gallery, studio, sculpture garden and heritage rooms with special emphasis on the number of works on paper in the collection.
Following this insightful tour, we will be transferring to Kinross Arts Centre in Toorak, visiting the Hodges Gallery (housed in an Arts and Crafts style manse), Cafe.603 and the courtyard garden. This event will be utilising the exclusive free public transport offer for Victorian Senior Card holders during the first week of Seniors' festival.
At Kinross, visitors will have the opportunity to view the upcoming exhibition of luminous watercolour art by Patricia Mirabile. Afterwards, you are invited to Cafe.603 where you can choose from a number of delicious lunch offerings (menu to follow).

About Music for David
The Music For David program was set up in 2013 by Uniting AgeWell in memory of The Reverend David Hodges AM, a former Minister of Toorak Uniting Church. Music For David is a music program which supports people who are living with dementia and gives temporary respite to their carers. The use of specially devised music has proved to be beneficial in alleviating restlessness, agitation and anxiety - symptoms which are often present with dementia.
