lot19 was founded to celebrate life

lot 19 is an evolving artspace in the central highlands of victoria with studio spaces, an outdoor stage, a contemporary art gallery which also presents excellent music, marionette theatre, performance, and film, and an outdoor sculpture park. We are dedicated to promoting undiluted excellence in the full field of human experience, and are not driven by sales. for our history, and who we are, click here


we are thrilled to announce a new concept, THE CHRYSALIS PROJECT, where lot19 donate a free studio to an emerging artist of particular vigour and talent so they can peruse their craft beyond immediate financial constraints. the first artist to be granted the studio is inta parsons, and we look forward to you becoming aware of her work in the near future! we look forward to this idea having legs, and as the concept develops, supporting a wide range of emerging artists over the years…

we are so happy to now host 26 artists, following the completion of 4 new studios. a further new studio allows us the honour of hosting ‘trouble magazine‘, and a new open-access pottery studio is nearing completion, with a large gas fired top-hat kiln and a small electric kiln. please email expressions of interest, and stay tuned for details. next is an additional new stage… (oops, this building thing is infectious!), and a new studio for a print collective! yep…

There are still a limited number of slots left for new shows: check out our Proposal information for more details! the curators meet to discuss proposals april, july and november, so please have your idea, along with all relevant info and images emailed to us by the first of those months
