The Artist's Lounge

The Artist's Lounge is a great combination of gallery, art supplies and place for artists to hang out and discuss art and life. It's the initiative of a couple who are committed to promoting art and artists in the Yarra Valley. Ali Griffin and Billy Chisholm live and work in Healesville. They also run Three Stories Art Space... a gallery and place for creative activity with a spectacular view. (More from Three Stories later.)
While I was snapping these pics, Ali and Billy's daughter returned home from school with the news that her painting was a finalist in Not the Archies. It seemed fitting.
