The Queer Country art exhibition celebrates the talents, vision and experiences of queer artists from Bendigo and rural and regional Victoria. 2023 will be our 15th year and you can be part of this venerable art institution! Queer Country runs as part of the Bendigo Pride Festival.

The exhibition will be on display at Dudley House, 60 View St, Bendigo, from Friday 17th March till Sunday 2nd April 2023 (open Wednesdays to Sunday).

We are looking for art in any media. Subject matter is up to the artist but preference will be given to artworks that address themes and issues relating to the LGBTQIA+ community. Artworks will be selected by a committee. Artists are asked to present their work ready to exhibit, framed or in a manner that can be hung on a suspended strap system. There is floor space for freestanding works but artists are asked to provide any props or plinths required to exhibit their work, or any instructions required for their display. The exhibition will have an official opening from 6pm – 8pm on Friday 17th March, 2023.
