This exhibition explores the theme of gold, interpreted in
diverse ways by the 80 members of the Ballarat Society of Artists -
the gold rush, the gold of wildlife and nature, golden places,
golden moments, golden objects, a splash of gold colour or just a
picture framed in gold.
The artists in the Society take pride in Ballarat's history
which, by way of the Eureka Rebellion, gave the Australian people
the foundations of its democracy. The legacy of the riches of the
gold rush, have given Ballarat a rich cultural heritage. Many of
its fine buildings, especially in Lydiard Street, and other
attractions, continue to provide a drawcard for visitors from
around the world.
The Ballarat Society of Artists was formed in 1982 by a local
group of artists. It provides a forum for discussion and
appreciation of art and for the mutual support and encouragement of
fellow artists. It is a well established part of Ballarat's
artistic scene with a calendar including exhibitions, festivals,
demonstrations and workshops.
