Professional, practising and emerging visual artists are invited to participate in a series of group exhibitions which will be held along the railway line from Melbourne to Bendigo.

The railway stations which will host the art works include Bendigo, Castlemaine and Riddells Creek.

“We’re working to broaden awareness and expand potential to sell artwork from this region to new markets,” local organiser Karen Corr said.

Curated and presented to a high standard, this exhibition will “pop up” at different destinations along the railway line from Melbourne to Bendigo in November and December of this year.

Kevin Pierce, who will be designing and building a special purpose facility to showcase the works, said the project team is hoping to receive and select 100-200 small art works.

Maree Tonkin from the City of Greater Bendigo said visual artists were based all over central Victoria and many would like opportunities to sell more work and grow their arts business practice.

The project is made possible via a federal government grant, and partnerships with the City of Greater Bendigo and Macedon Ranges Shire.

To participate, artists need to submit an expression of interest by Friday, September 21.
