Mural Launch – Saturday 27th October 2-4pm

Launch by Maree Dixon  LGBTIQ+ Diversity Worker for the HEY (Healthy Equal Youth) Project, Headspace  Bendigo

As parent to a child who identifies with the LGBTQI community, this work speaks to the heartbreaking fact that many young people feel the need to move away from their rural communities or commit suicide. This wall art aligns itself to the ‘It gets better’  campaign.
Local artist Sarah Wallace – Smith, is Arnold Street Gallery’s recipient of the Mural Bursary for a Woman Artist, supported by Creative Victoria’s Regional Centre for Culture 2018 Local Grant.
Her mural entitled Rusty, Charlie and Dirty Harriet, was initially inspired by J K Rowling’s three headed guard dog, Fluffy. Wallace – Smith has portrayed the her farms working dogs as a symbol of rural Australia, guarding a path of safety and acceptance for all individuals.

Congratulations to our Mural Bursary for a Woman Artist recipient,  Sarah Wallace – Smith. 

Thank you to all who applied.

13th November – 1st December, 2018

Launched 17th November 2018 2-4 pm

Book Launch 17th November 2.30pm

Wild & Tamed showcased photographs by two very different photographers, Carolyn Dew and Rhys Jones. Carolyn’s still life colour photos described the intersection of the natural world with material culture through tightly framed vignettes of private and public spaces, such as domestic interiors, gardens and cemeteries.

Rhys Jones’ analogue black and white photographs follow the tradition of the great American landscape photographers who contributed to the beginnings of the modern environmental conservation movement. Wild & Tamed compared and contrasted the differences in style and intention of their works to create a unique visual interpretation of the bush, the marginal lands and the tended landscapes of central Victoria.

Dew and Jones launched their self published photograph book ‘Wild & Tamed’ at the exhibition launch.

This exhibition has been made possible by the Creative Victoria Regional Centre for Culture 2018 grant.

Wild & Tamed Photographic book available
