Bayside Local at Bayside Gallery

Now in its third year, Bayside Local is a much-anticipated annual exhibition that celebrates the high calibre of work produced by artists who live and work in the Bayside area. This year we also included year 11 & 12 VCE students.

Bayside Local launched our 2021 exhibition program with an eclectic and energising array of works that range from traditional landscape painting to experimental abstraction, intriguing photographic portraits and creative and autobiographical film, showcasing of our creative local talent.

Entries to Bayside Local 2022 open on 29 September.

Here's a glimpse of our 2021 exhibition...

We captured three of the students' initial reactions to seeing their work on exhibition at Bayside Gallery.

Behind the scenes at Bayside Local

We take a look behind the scenes as our empty gallery is transformed by the works of local artists.
