A COMBINATION of artworks and sculptures from local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists are currently on display at Dudley House.
The annual Knuldoorong Art Exhibition, which runs each year during NAIDOC Week has 27 pieces of work on display from over 13 artists.
Yorta Yorta woman, artist and First Nations art officer Janet Bromley said the exhibition has been busy all week.
"We have had heaps of people through this year and we are getting over 60 people per day," she said.
"We have had a lot of people and sold lots of work which is amazing."
Bromley said all of the artists involved in the exhibition had a connection to the region.
"This exhibition is about showcasing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders artists that learn or earn in this community," she said.
"Some of the artists have been bringing some piece of art in for five years and we have a lot of new people this year with the youngest 17 years old.
"It's about keeping everybody connected but this exhibition has developed a trust relationship with the artists."
This year's exhibition marks the first for Bromley in her unique role as the City of Greater Bendigo's First Nations arts officer.
Entry is free and the most works are available for purchase and will be on display from 11am to 4pm.
