Connections: Annual Art Exhibition

Each year Council holds an art exhibition to showcase and celebrate the work of artists who live, work or are connected to the City of Whittlesea.

This is a fully accessible exhibition providing a space for local artists to exhibit and promote their work.  The theme for this year’s exhibition is Connections.



After a year of separation, let’s notice, build and celebrate our connections. Artists may choose to focus on connections that exist and support them, or those that they wish to call into their lives or world. They may wish to appreciate their connections to: nature or each other, people or places in the external world or those that exist within, to ideas, knowledge, skills, practices and objects. There are many ways that we can, and/ or do connect both individually and collectively. This exhibition reminds us that we are all social animals and for wellness we need to connect with each other and nature.

Artworks will be exhibited from Friday 26 November to Monday 20 December 2021 in The Great Hall, Council Offices, 25 Ferres Boulevard, South Morang.
