We have had an overwhelming response by artists to participate in the small works from a BIG PLACE exhibition – receiving in excess of 380 pieces of work [from 130+ artists]. From these 249 pieces were selected.
Artwork selection was based on theme, style and how work from different artists could be exhibited to compliment one another.
A minimum of 1 piece to a maximum of 3 from each artist has taken its place within the exhibition [see the online catalogue here]
This inaugural exhibition combines a variety of styles, themes and expertise – as was directed and outlined by artistic communities [of Macedon, Hepburn, Mount Alexander and Hepburn] in previous consultations.
A basic facility now exists for future shows and future exhibition themes may be up for discussion in 2019 – depending on what’s possible for us, moving forward.
The exhibition has so far successfully been placed at Riddells Creek Railway Station and Castlemaine Railway Station. The recent Community Gathering in Castlemaine attracted 100 + artists and supporters to celebrate the achievements of this project so far. This also provided a moment to acknowledge what’s possible for these communities now and looking forward, and how direct support makes a difference.
The next stop for the exhibition is Bendigo Railway Station, on show from 1st December to 10th December. Visit the exhibition and spread the word, with an emphasis on buying art to strengthen artists and our creative communities and enhance the ripple effect in this.
