In a Brimbank first, we now have an outside gallery for projecting artworks as part of the Light up Sunshine project. The projection wall is located behind the Brimbank Community & Civic Centre in Sunshine.
Artists’ work will be displayed in the evenings from 7pm at this location for two month periods as part of the rotational gallery of projection.
If you are a local artist and would like the community to see your work please keep an eye out for our exhibition Expression of Interest (EOI) each year in August/September on the Creative Brimbank website.

Light Magic is a video projection piece which presents an ever-shifting composition of colours and shapes formed from light and camera. Preserving a perception of light that we can’t see with our naked eye and keeping it in digital pixels. A magical-appearing mix of vibrant colours and shapes cascade across the architecture, appearing, mixing, and disappearing in a constant state of digital flux. Knowing that curiosity is an intrinsic and important part of our lives, Miranda's artwork aims to spark the joy of curiosity and imagination in its viewers. Miranda's art is created with a purposeful prescriptive void, exploring the exciting realm of ambiguity that allows for viewers to enjoy and interpret art as they go on the journey of visually deciphering it. There is no ‘correct’ answer or interpretation, it is to be experienced and felt.
Miranda Smith is a Hong Kong and Naarm/Melbourne based light artist working with installation, digital print, sculpture, and painting. Smith uses perceptual fallacies to create dynamic and experimental art experiences for her viewers. She reinterprets and recontextualizes visual stimuli, lived experiences, and intriguing theories into her light based practice. Smith aims to involve the viewer in questioning their own experience of her work, through ususal imagery and playful infulence on our visual system.
On show nightly from 7pm
Exhibition: 19 January - 28 February 2022

The classic late bloomer, travel was the spark that lit self-taught Australian photographer Adrian Whear’s love for street/documentary photography. In 2017 Adrian commenced his street photography journey making the effort to go out and walk the streets and alleys of his hometown Melbourne, and in the process started to discover his home city’s true soul. It was during these walks that he started to develop his photographic eye, slowly forming an understanding, vision, and style for his photography. Adrian’s aim is to capture an ordinary everyday scene but to interpret it in an extraordinary way.
The exhibition will follow the Melbourne COVID story, exploring the societal impact of COVID using candid images that range from documentary to humorous. "Whilst I am the author of the photographs, as the viewer explores the images, they'll become the narrator of their own story".
Exhibition: 1 March - 30 April 2022
