CONTROVERSIAL artist Bill Henson has visited Bendigo Art Gallery just 48 hours before director Karen Quinlan is expected to make several major announcements.
Ms Quinlan will address the inaugural Bendigo Art Gallery foundation cocktail party tomorrow evening and is expected to reveal one major initiative along with several other projects.
A collection of works were yesterday delivered to the gallery and will be revealed tomorrow night. The gallery has thrown open what was to be a members-only event to all, giving anyone interested in hearing the announcements the chance to buy tickets to the event.
