Central Goldfields Art Gallery newest exhibition called Darkness and Light: Landscapes of Central Victoria is launching at 2pm this Saturday 6 April.

Three artists respond to the landscape of central Victoria in their own unique way in this exhibition of paintings and drawings. 

Michelle Kettle paints historic facades of the Central Goldfields; Mark Dober creates watercolours and oil paintings inspired by the Castlemaine Botanical Gardens; and Joanne Sisson’s paintings originate from sketches and photographs produced on day trips to forested locations surrounding her home in Ballarat. 

Manager of Castlemaine Art Museum Naomi Cass will be the guest speaker at the exhibition launch which will be officially opened by Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey.

“This is a unique exhibition that allows us to see the central Victorian landscape in new ways and through the eyes of the artists,” Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said.

The exhibition will be on display until 12 May.

The Gallery is located in Neill Street, Maryborough, and is open from Thursday to Sunday 10am to 4pm or at other times by arrangement.  Guided tours are welcome.
