A local artist response to the Rural City of Wangaratta’s Mayoral Chain

Local Links presents four local North East Victorian artists who reside in the Rural City of Wangaratta or are represented in the Wangaratta Art Gallery Collection. These four artists have created new works in response to a brief which reflects on the Rural City of Wangaratta’s Mayoral Chain, ceremonial costume, civic rituals, community pride and local history. Local Links is a local response accompanying the Craft Victoria Mayoral Chain exhibition.
