Beechworth Arts Council Members embrace the spirit of inclusion in COLOUR – a group exhibition of visual art at The Empire Hotel Art Gallery, 03 November through to 02 December 2023

COLOUR celebrated visual art across a range of mediums, echoing the spirit of open hearted inclusion and diversity as seen in the Rainbow flag of the LGBTIQ community. This open exhibition featuring the work of Beechworth Arts Council members was extended by popular demand through to the Christmas season of 2023.

Councillor Sue Gold officially launched the COLOUR exhibition on Sunday November 5. Councillor Gold is Indigo Shire’s most recent councillor, appointed in June 2023 replacing retiring Councillor Larry Goldsworthy.
