TEN artists from the Loddon Mallee have considered the future of renewable energy for an exhibition on display in Inglewood.
The Loddon Mallee Renewable Energy Art Exhibition is the first of its kind for the region and hopes to bring together a collective vision for sustainable energy.
It will tour 10 municipalities but is currently on display in Inglewood until August 30.
Inglewood artist Greg Holland said he was excited at the opportunity and considered what world children will face in creating his work.
"I wanted my artwork Where do the children play? to provoke people into thinking about what is happening to our children's world, but to be optimistic," he said. "I'm trying to encourage the new generation with a message of stop and rethink."
Mr Holland said it was exciting to have the chance to present an exhibition like DELWP's in the northern part of the state.
"I've go to commend DELWP for offering this to the northern shires," he said. "Most arts tends to stop at Daylesford and Castlemaine, it doesn't often come this far north. These initiatives are a wonderful thing."
Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning community and partnerships program coordinator Erin Baxter said it is interesting to see how local creative minds interpreted renewable energy's future.
"It has resulted in an exciting opportunity for visitors to experience the creative expressions of these artists," she said.
DELWP program manager of community partnerships Geoff Caine said it was encouraging to get so many responses to the call out.
"(There is) enthusiasm behind it," he said. "It sounds like there is a thirst for more arts programs up in the region. The main purpose was to bring that conversation of what renewable energy might look like. North west Victoria has a strong history of communities and businesses taking the lead on things like this. It's about looking at what possibilities are."
The free exhibition is on Inglewood Community Neighbourhood House in Verdon Street until August 30.
