MORE than 90 local artists will have their works shown at the Market Art Winter Exhibition in Castlemaine.

The free exhibition will be on display at the historic Market Building in Mostyn Street until September 3.

Artworks will also be on sale with paintings, sculpture, jewellery, glassware, prints, photography, textiles and more included in the exhibition.

The exhibition shares a space with the Castlemaine Visitor Information Centre.

“This is a great chance to see fantastic works from some the region’s finest artists,” Mount Alexander Shire Council corporate and community services director Lisa Knight said.

“More than 20,000 people visited the building when the summer exhibition was on earlier this year, and 154 pieces of artworks valued at $21,980 in total were sold.”
