Our recent foray to the rural regions was for the magnificent exhibition currently displayed at the Bendigo Art Gallery, Genius & Ambition. A fine survey of works from The Royal Academy of Arts, London, generously on loan and also including a swag of Australian artists works garnered from all corners of our nation, who had in turn been educated and exhibited by the Royal Academy.
A relaxing and refined affair in the wondrous surrounds of the Bendigo Art Gallery, small pity about the lighting which was tad too reflective. But all in all a worthy reason to head bush to Bendigo.
Below is a selection of the galleries permanent collection which alone gives enough reason to visit.
Genius & Ambition runs until June 9th 2014
