It’s wonderful to see young artists being given the chance to work and exhibit alongside more experienced artists. This happened recently in Bendigo, (Central Victoria, Australia) the city of my birth. Subscriber D of Bendigo sent news of the works of emerging talents being coupled with well-known street artists to contribute to 11 new artworks in the Pennyweight Walk Open-Air Gallery.

Please follow this link to get an in-depth preview of the artists and their works to be presented.
