Two artists have captured Greater Bendigo’s natural beauty and terrain for a new exhibition at the Living Arts Space.
Artists Kerry L Brown and Annie Brigdale present a selection of artwork for Traverse, an exhibition inspired by their time in unique and varied landscapes across Greater Bendigo.
Ms Brown brings a sense of wonder and being immersed in nature, and draws inspiration from the texture, shape, sound and changing light of ‘the bush’.
First Nations artist Ms Brigdale presents a parallel journey with learning and reconnecting to her cultural heritage. Her artworks reflect her thinking of Country, how it moves and how it sits with her.
Visitor Services Manager Jemma Docherty said the artists had taken two different approaches and interpretations about what the landscape meant to them personally to create wonderful works.
“Together their work creates an inspiring and immersive view of our local terrain, capturing both the movement and stillness with bold splashes of colour and strong linework,” Ms Docherty said.
“Traverse is a beautiful free exhibition and reveals the deep cultural and emotional connection these two artists have with Country.
“Visitors can enjoy this unique exhibition in a COVID-safe way and browse the collection, including items for sale which also feature in our online catalogue.”
