Mid-winter art scene in Ballarat

Space22 has its last show this month, a large group exhibition. Some very interesting art there for art lovers, while Red Brick Gallery features Anne Schultz. I find a couple of interesting paintings of Anne's which I liked, otherwise, I did not get the clean colours that usually I find in oil paintings, probably the paintings were arcylic, I did not take a second look.
