False 2018 by Ben Mangan, part of the Local Rules: Identity exhibition at Art Gallery of Ballarat
If you’re in Ballarat to see Weathering the Future, it’s well worth the effort to pop into the Art Gallery of Ballarat, where three exquisite exhibitions are on show downstairs.
The Numina Sisters presents astounding, massive paintings from a family of NT artists, and Strange Garden by Eliza-Jane Gilchrist shows what imagination and cardboard can really do.
In the Local Rules: Identity display, district arts look behind the creative mask, and we were chuffed to see one of the works coming from Ben Mangan, the Arts Academy lecturer who oversaw the wonderful digital posters produced by the communication design students for Weathering the Future. Ben also designed our logo.
Also among the gallery’s special exhibitions are shows by Louiseann King and Marlene Gilson.
