An exhibition opened on October 3 in St Arnaud featuring the works of 10 local artists.
Since opening in September 2019, the RHI Gallery and Market has provided a space for artists in the region to promote and retail their arts, crafts and produce.
The ongoing Melbourne lockdown has prevented a touring exhibition from being delivered to the St Arnaud Raillery Gallery. Local artists made the most of the opportunity, having quickly filled up the heritage listed station's walls and floors.
St Arnaud Raillery Hub said it was "quite inspirational"; the community was able to come together and fill the exhibition.
"It is quite inspirational and highlights the value of art in bringing communities together."
The displays include handcrafted chairs and sculptured timber vessels from reclaimed timbers, hand painted ceramics, and artworks in acrylic, oil, graphite, gouache, charcoal, pastel, watercolour and textile.
Val Wilkinson, along with a loyal band of local volunteers helped bring the colorful and diverse collection to fruition in a matter of days.
St Arnaud Raillery Gallery has evolved into a meeting place for emerging and professional artists to share skills, attend professional development workshops, and meet socially whilst working on their own projects.
The St Arnaud Railway Hub which is located in Queens Avenue, adds to the town's significant tourist draw cards including Silo Art and street art by local artist, Kyle Torney, mosaics, gold mining and heritage sites.
The artists include: Richard Bazeley, Don, Leah, Jake and Jasmine Berry, Judith Church, Jenny McClelland, Lyn Robinson, William Pout and Peter Tanczos.
The St Arnaud Artists' Exhibition is available for viewing Friday to Sunday 11am-4pm, until November
