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. 

Thankyou to all who applied.
