The Post Office Gallery (Ballarat)

The Post Office Gallery is  part of Federation University Australia (located in Ballarat).  Until 15 July, the Gallery had two exhibitions:

“NAIDOC18: Because of her, we can”.

All the works are by aboriginal and Torres Strait Island artists.  This exhibition shows the breadth of contemporary aboriginal work, which included digital prints on aluminium, painting and sculpture.  There was a story well told giving context to each piece of art,

“NAIDOC18: Cooee!”

This is an group exhibition of art to quote the gallery “created through a unique collaboration between Federation College’s VET Visual Arts program, Langi Kal Kal Ararat and Hopkins Correctional Centre.”  Basically aboriginal artists in the correctional facilities are provided with the space, time and equipment to create their art.  This exhibition showed the different painter approaches to creating art.  First names only were used in attribute of the artists, protecting their identity and maintaining their privacy.

Photos of work were permitted for personal use only, so will not be displaying any images in this space.
