The works in this exhibition have featured in a series of articles published on the CAM website. Reflections began as part of CAM’s online response to the COVID-19 lockdown. Contributors are asked to ‘reflect’ on works or objects from the CAM collections and history. Reflections also included published interviews with local artists and education resources for young people.
Reflections has been an experiment in opening up CAM's art and museum collections to new voices and knowledge. This series and exhibition represent a commitment from the Castlemaine Art Museum to make our magnificent collection accessible, relevant and uplifting. We encourage and invite our community to continue these reflections and conversations and have included a number of works which have not yet attracted a ‘reflection’. The exhibition also includes a selection of objects in the historical museum downstairs.
