Three exhibitions look closer at our lives and community

It's a month of great exhibitions in Brimbank with three set to open -

  • Humans of Brimbank by photographer Mehak Sheikh;
  • Dinky Die by Silvia Tomarchio; and
  • Part of my journey by artist Benjamin Alvarado.

Humans of Brimbank
Humans of Brimbank is a "photo voice" project that aims to create a photographic census of Brimbank. It runs from Thursday 23 July to Saturday 8 August at the Sunshine Art Spaces Gallery, 2 City Place in Sunshine.

The exhibition features the faces of people living in Brimbank and celebrates the community’s diversity.

Photographer, Mehak Sheikh, hopes that her work will connect people while eliminating negative stereotypes and helps to raise the profile of the west and its community.

Dinky Die
Dinky Die is also a photographic exhibition that focuses on the notion of chance and fate. It runs from Friday 24 July to Saturday 22 August at the Hunt Club Community Arts Centre in Deer Park.

The images depict random moments in time and space where fate and chance may intervene like a simple roll of the dice.

Part of my journey
Part of my journey draws on the background of the artist Benjamin Alvarado and blends it with his current experience of western Melbourne landscapes to become an abstract interpretation of place. His exhibition, which is also at the Hunt Club Community Arts Centre runs from Friday 24 July to Saturday 22 August.
