I've heard about the Light Factory Gallery from so many people and in so many places. I can't believe it's taken me so long to get there. Today was the day. The building is great. It was built in 1973 by Alistair Knox. It has his trademark recycled wood beams and uprights. It was originally a light factory but works beautifully as a gallery due to the enormous clerestory windows and the huge open internal space. There's something about the marriage of Alistair Knox's design and rusted metal. Made in heaven. My first blog was about Justin Purser, metalworker extraordinaire from the Yarra Valley. His work is in evidence here in all of the signage but most spectacularly in the huge metal front doors. (See the details in the three photos below).
