• Living Arts Space


The Living Arts Space is attached to the Bendigo Visitor's Centre which located at the front of the majestic historic Post Office building, in Bendigo's Pall Mall. The Space offers professional Central Victorian creatives somewhere to showcase their work through carefully curated exhibitions, demonstrations, performative works, workshops and artist talks. The Living Arts Space is greatly enjoyed by visitors and locals alike


Lifelike presents a collection of works from four local artists who work with observational ‘en plein air’ drawing and painting techniques. These artists capture the essence of life in Bendigo, patiently observing the local culture, landmarks and landscapes and interpreting them into realistic depictions of life in this vibrant bustling city. The exhibition will display both works in progress and finished masterpieces so that that the viewer can gain insight into the technical and creative process of working ‘pleinair’.

Terry Jarvis, Shaun Clarke, Meg Holmes and Michael Watson.

Lifelike is free to attend and is open daily from 30 March – 16 June
Opening Celebration Friday 5 April

Meditations in Geometry
Meditations in Geometry presents a collection of drawn and painted geometric artworks from Jacquilyne Smith. Working with a limited pallet, Jacquilyne explores the relationships of colour and shape through a process of creative meditation, allowing her to subconsciously drift into the memory of a place or time, or simply shut out the noise. Come and immerse yourself in this hypnotic exhibition of calming, colourful works that speak of order, precision, and tranquility in a time when the disorder and chaos of the modern world is ever present.

Meditations in Geometry is free to attend and is open daily from 22 June – 4 August.
Opening Celebration Saturday 29 June.
