Sculpture in motion at Hanging Rock Winery

Australia's pre-eminent kinetic sculptor Rudi Jass has installed his sculpture 'Circles' for Hanging Rock Winery's Art in the Vines exhibition.

The first sculptures featuring in Hanging Rock Winery’s new exhibition, Art in the Vines – Sculpture in Motion, have moved into place.
During the coming weeks, 15 kinetic sculptures will be installed throughout the winery’s grounds in preparation for the exhibition’s opening day on Saturday October 26.
Following on from the hugely successful Art in the Vines – Sculpture Exhibition and Trail in 2018/19, this new exhibition will be far from an ordinary display of outdoor sculptures, because this is art that relies on motion for its effect.
Australia’s most pre-eminent kinetic sculpture artist Rudi Jass is exhibiting, as is James Parrett – winner of Bondi’s Sculpture by the Sea major prize in 2018, not to mention local artist Anton Hasell – creator of the famous Federation Bells in Melbourne’s Birrarung Marr, along with many other renowned artists.
With the region’s most iconic backdrop of the vineyard, Hanging Rock and Mount Macedon providing an unparalleled setting for some incredible kinetic sculptures, Art in the Vines – Sculpture in Motion will be the perfect destination for a day out.
Visitors can start their experience by tasting some of Hanging Rock’s award-winning wine, before choosing a bottle or two, picking up a trail map and heading off glass in hand to explore the exhibition! Then to complete the experience, visitors can pair their wine with a gourmet picnic box or cheeseboard, find a spot on our deck or lawns and wile away the afternoon.
A series of complementary events, including the legendary Long Lunch, will also form part of the broader exhibition program.
Art in the Vines – Sculpture in Motion will conclude on Sunday February 23, 2020.
