A House Haunted… by Art
Ghosts, Gangsters, Artists, Actors, Authors and Musicians have all collided in this magical abode.
A veritable Who’s Who of Melbourne’s cultural characters have collected, at one time or another, at a former pub, now dubbed The Lennox, at Richmond’s 208 Lennox Street.
Back to the 80s. Ann Holt establishes her studio, The Inevitably, ghost stories haunt buildings of such longevity. “There was a resident ghost at Lennox Street,” artist Ann Holt, who lived there during the 1980s, confirms. “I had seen it coming up the cellar stairs as a ball of white light on several occasions.
Parties, exhibitions and live music; The Lennox comes alive. Plans for causes and trips were planned, most notably an artists’ journey with Schaller, David Larwill and Peter Walsh, the ongoing Artists For Kids Culture Trust was hatched at the premises. Artist Lisa Roet exhibited, and the famed Skyhooks used the space to record their first reunion song in 1990.
