Quite a few diehards art lovers, braved the typical cold and wet Balllarat weather to attend the opening of Amy Tsilemanis’ opening of “the space between” at the backspace gallery.
Cold weather in Ballarat but that did not deter the crowd at the “Made in Ballarat” exhibition opening at Backspace Gallery. A wonderful group exhibition of artists from the South Street Art Studio run by Linda Franklin. And joined by Odette Hearn and Martin Hale, all three different works of Art depicting the scene in Ballarat and its rich gold mining history. Odette’s work of goldfish drawings symbolised the Chinese Miners influence in Ballarat, and Martin’s paintings of typical gold leads maps under the Southern Sky, while Linda’s paintings on timber of the life revolving around Lake Wendouree.
Interesting and rich cultural exhibition, worth a look or a purchase of very reasonable artworks.
Dawn is at the painting stage for the traffic signal boxes project, this time with the Ballarat Migrant Women’s group. All forms submitted and next Tuesday they will be painiing if it is a nice day.
Tomorrow at 6pm will be the opening of the Terrain Exhibition at the Backspace gallery in Camp St, the old police building.
