Backspace Gallery – The Passing Of The Miner’s Cottage exhibition
5 May, 2016 @ 12:00 am - 15 May, 2016 @ 4:00 pmFree
In the Passing Of The Miner’s Cottage, artist Jocelyn Reid exhibits paintings she has created over the past decade, documenting the fate of historic miners’ cottages across the Central Highlands & Goldfields Region.
Sometimes lovingly restored, sometimes derelict, sometimes just hanging in there, sometimes only signalled by the remnants of the gardens left behind – these iconic structures are a symbol of the drive to domesticate our region in the search for gold.
The Passing Of The Miner’s Cottage is presented in association with the Ballarat Heritage Weekend, 7 – 8 May.
