The Johnston Collection, a museum of fine and decorative arts housed in Fairhall, East Melbourne holds an annual Christmas exhibition which is presented by a different Victorian region each year.

Supported by Creative Gippsland, Joyful & Triumphant is a collaborative arts initiative comprising all six Gippsland municipalities: Latrobe City, Bass Coast Shire, Baw Baw Shire, South Gippsland Shire, East Gippsland Shire and Wellington Shire.

The makers completed their works over a period of eighteen months, with some individual pieces taking hundreds of hours to complete. In the process of making their work for The Johnston Collection, the makers often continue crafting traditions of meeting to talk and tell stories while they work on their pieces. In some instances, whole communities were involved in the creation of the work.

EXHIBITION CELEBRATION: 6pm Friday 15 April 2016 

FREE – RSVP Wednesday 13 April
