Welcome to Montsalvat
Welcome to Montsalvat, where the life of art is lived and a fabled past meets a vibrant present. Montsalvat is Australia’s oldest continuously active artists’ community; a place where art in all its forms is made and taught, and art’s transformative power is celebrated in exhibitions, festivals, concerts, workshops and artists’ residencies.
Montsalvat is also a place of welcome to all – old and young, committed and curious. Everyone is invited to find peace and pleasure in Montsalvat’s lovingly tended gardens, enjoy Montsalvat’s exhibitions, its restaurant and hospitality, and marvel at its complex of buildings that evoke a European past while exemplifying a very Australian trait of recycling and architectural inventiveness.
Montsalvat acknowledges the passing of Sebastian Jörgensen
10/07/1938 - 19/08/2019
Sebastian Jörgensen, son of Justus Jörgensen and Helen Skipper, was a highly accomplished guitarist. He traveled around the world playing music with friend and fellow musician John Williams. By the time Sebastian had returned to Australia in 1971, he had performed at both Albert Hall and Wigmore Hall.
He was teacher to Phillip Houghton and Matthew Flattley to name a few.
Rest in peace Sebastian.
