Artists get public exposure in Bendigo exhibition

AN exhibition showcasing the work of artists with a disability opened in Bendigo yesterday.

The opening of the exhibition Kaleidoscope coincided with the International Day for People with a Disability and features work from about 50 artists. 

International Day for People with a Disability aims to recognise the achievements, skills and contributions of people living with a disability. 

Artist Lyn Sturgess said she enjoyed drawing and was very excited about showing her work to the community. 

Ms Sturgess has three artworks in the exhibition, one of which is a top-12 finalist in this year’s Kaleidoscope competition.

The exhibition is part of a Scope initiative that provides opportunities to artists with a disability to participate in the broader arts arena. 

The exhibition at Dudley House is open to the public until Saturday, from 10am to 5pm daily. Entry is free.
