Bendigo artist on show at Federation Square

BENDIGO artist Gaye Clarke is among more than 150 people whose work is on display at Federation Square. 

The 10th annual State Trustees Connected Art Exhibition aims to display the creative work by those who live with a disability or experience mental illness. 

Ms Clarke is a regular member of Bendigo’s Amicus group, a non-profit organisation that helps support those who live with a disability. 

Amicus art facilitator Jude Jacobs said Gaye always attended their weekly art session. 

“Gaye has been doing art for most of her life, she is very creative,” she said. 

“She is one of our experienced artists and has exhibited many of her art pieces.” Ms Jacobs said Gaye drew inspiration from books and magazines and enjoyed using colour. 

She said they both attended the opening of the free exhibition on November 20. 

State Trustees managing director Tony Fitzgerald said the exhibition provided an opportunity for artists to explore their talents and gain public and professional recognition for their work. 

He said the exhibition was in its 10th year and encouraged the community to get along and check out the art. 

The exhibition at Federation Square’s Yarra Building finishes tomorrow.
