Birthday Celebrations at Bendigo
Bendigo Art Gallery is celebrating its 130-year anniversary with a dynamic new exhibition of historic, contemporary, curious, significant, and much-loved favourite works from the Gallery’s renowned collection.
The exhibition explores the gallery’s vast collection in the context of social, artistic and community change as well as the evolution of the Gallery itself. Works which have subject matter, theme, style or medium in common are being brought together, offering a fresh approach to the gallery’s immense collection. New acquisitions by leading contemporary Australian artists including Hany Armanious, Michael Cook and Polixeni Papapetrou will be shown alongside some of the first ever works acquired by the founders of the Gallery in 1887. Joining these works are long-time favourites and lesser-known gems from the collection.
From 4 March, Tue–sun 10am–5pm, Bendigo Art Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo. 5434 6088. www.bendigoartgallery.com.au
