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.
