The Winter Night Festival in Morwell has been running for two years. It is a wonderful family event, showcasing the best of the creative side that we don’t celebrate as much as we probably should. There were so many creative acts.
This is a fantastic festival that showcases the artistic and musical talent the Latrobe Valley and Morwell have to offer. There is also the regular stalls for the local markets that occur, such as cupcakes, candles, food, and other items. Some of the local shops were open and it was really nice to escape into the warmth of the shops. There are a few gems in Morwell. I was really taken by the Art House, that sells local art, bric a brac, antique stuff, and awesome stockings.
The Latrobe Valley Art Gallery participated with a fifties theme, musician and 5 galleries full of different art installations. The community art gallery was fantastic, and showcased 35 paintings.
The Gippsland Acoustic Music Performers, blasted rock’n’roll from a trailer. There were so many musical performers, I missed some of the names. There was a wall of sound and the town lit up all very pretty.
While all the light shows were really good, I loved the light show at the Masonic Hall, by Dan Clancy and Eliosa Tripod. Dan controls the laptop and Eloisa puts on a show and the building reacts. It was really great they even had a third performer who I photographed on the building.
