Heide and the Heart Garden

Really enoying a book called 'The Heart Garden' by Janine Burke about Sunday Reed and her time establishing Heide. They shared their home and supported a community of local artist including Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester, John Perceval and Danila Vassilieff. It is where Nolan painted the famous Ned Kelly Series.

It is now a fantastic contemporary art gallery, kitchen garden, Cafe Vue and you can visit their original cottage and subsequent Modernist home designed by architect David McGlashan on the same site in Bulleen, VIC, about 40 minutes from Melbourne city.
