Artists find beauty in decay

Seven contemporary artists will showcase their talents for a limited time at Dudley House in Bendigo next month.

The exhibition titled Beauty in Decay was created to highlight the beauty in the ugly.

The collective of artists intend to present an array of everyday objects in disrepair.

Regional artists Sandra Hosking, Lisa Guzzardi, Sarah Wallace-Smith, Belinda Fraser, Judith Warnest, Jodie Louise Knight and Patrick Thwaites make up the group titled A7+.

Bendigo artist Sandra Hosking said drawing was her passion.

"My main medium in this exhibition is charcoal and pencil drawings," she said.

"I've got drawings of old buildings and decaying leaves.

"There are so many interesting textures in decay.

"The main thing that we are waiting to get across in this exhibition is that wherever you look if you are looking for beauty you will find it.

"Things you become almost immune to seeing can be so beautiful.

"If you look close enough you will see beauty there."

The exhibition will be opened Cr Rod Fyffe at 6pm on May 1.

The artists will be working on site at Dudley House for the duration of the exhibition.

It will be open from 10am until 5pm from May 2 until May 13.
