In the arts, as in life, everything is possible provided it is based on love.
— Marc Chagall c. 1922
Here is a date for your diary not to be missed! At 2pm on Saturday 16 December please join us to celebrate the commencement of our major summer exhibition, LOVE. Love is a source of inspiration for visual artists throughout history and our exhibition explores this universal human emotion through themes of love of country, nature, self-love and love between people. Art in this exhibition is drawn from public collections in our region – including Bendigo Art Gallery and Ararat Gallery TAMA.
