ST ARNAUD residents have stepped in to stop a gallery's walls emptying after COVID-19 stopped a prestigious exhibition being delivered.
Melbourne's ongoing lockdown stopped Raillery Hub Inc running the exhibition in the town's heritage listed station.
So a group of artists living in the area pitched in by taking up collections, finishing off works and creating new ones.
Artists include Richard Bazeley, Don, Leah, Jake and Jasmine Berry, Judith Church, Jenny McClelland, Lyn Robinson, William Pout and Peter Tanczos. The exhibition is open from Friday to Sunday 11am-4pm, until November 7.
Their works comprise handcrafted chairs and sculptured timber vessels from reclaimed timbers, hand painted ceramics, and artworks in acrylic, oil, graphite, gouache, charcoal, pastel, watercolour and textile.
