Glen Eira is one of Melbourne's inner-city council municipalities, which includes real estate in Carnegie and Caufield. This isn't just a place to settle down and work for a living, however, but a place to thrive and have fun.
If you're an artist or simply an art lover, you'll be delighted to know that there are a number of galleries around the area. These of course make for fascinating experiences on their own, or as a place to showcase your own talent, and perhaps make a sale or two.
Here are two that you can find near your future Caufield property.
The council's own art space is situated on the ground floor of the town hall and was first opened back in 1975. There is a regular rotation of collections here, often featuring modern Melbourne artists. In addition, this building is also the home to two major awards: The Silk Cut Award for celebrating linocut printmaking, as well as to the AME Bale Travelling Scholarship and Art Prize. This is presented to artists who utilise traditional styles.
The Monash Art Design and Architecture (MADA) Gallery is the "public face" of Monash University's art scene. Its website states that this art space is used for educational purposes, helping to inspire students, staff members and the public by exhibiting high-quality pieces.
There are many displays that cycle through MADA, including both group and solo exhibits, in addition to fully curated shows. These works are created not just by students, but by staff, Glen Eira locals and other Australian or international artists.
These are just two of the artistic possibilities of owning Glen Eira property – this isn't even including the CBD, which is within close proximity. Are you excited about investing here?
