Upcoming Exhibition - What Lies Beneath 2017


A conceptual exhibition by Thou Art Mum exploring the theme of layers.

Long Galley, Montsalvat - 7 Hillcrest Ave Eltham                                  3rd - 29th May 2017

Layers exist in a myriad of physical, intellectual and superficial forms.

The natural world is constructed by layers, from rock formations to the design of plants and animals. We attire ourselves in layers, expressing ourselves through them, hiding behind them, and exploring our creativity within them.

We ourselves are a direct result of layers, from the skin on our bodies to the structure of our cells. Our surface layers experience alteration with time, while our minds collect experiences which compile to form our unique personalities.

Join our artists as they use their own unique perspective of layers to explore the ordinary and unravel the remarkable.

Exhibition Opening: 4 May, 6.30pm - 8.30pm.

Member artist Helen Platania will officially open the exhibition. All welcome. Light refreshments provided.

Past exhibition : A Taste of TAM, Celebrating 10 Years

Thou Art Mum is thrilled to continue their celebration of 10 years, with the opening of their 18th exhibition “A Taste of TAM” at The Bridges Restaurant, on Thursday 29 October.

35 of our mother-artists will create a vibrant experience for those visiting the exhibition, with over 70 artworks on display. Artistic disciplines will range from painting, drawing and illustration; to collage, sculpture, mosaic and photography. The subject matter just as diverse.

We were ecstatic to hear that founding member Katiuska Cruz will be travelling from the NSW North Coast to open the exhibition! Would you believe that in March 2005, (as part of a Landmark Education community project), Thou Art Mum started with an ad in the local paper for expressions of interest?


We can’t wait to see the Diamond Valley community get behind this exhibition. The opening will be a great evening out; especially for those looking to meet local artists and own a piece of local art themselves. Come and spend an evening in idyllic surrounds and surrounded by inspiring art!

Exhibition Opening : Thursday 29 October, 6.30-8.00pm. All are welcome. Artworks will be available to purchase on the night. Cheese and biscuits will be served with drinks at bar prices.

Exhibition Dates : 28 October – 6 December.
