The Kyneton Museum is located in Kyneton, an hour North of Melbourne.
The Museum Collection is housed in a beautiful bluestone building recognised by the National Trust and designed by architect Andrea Stumbucco who was responsible for many beautiful buildings in the Gold Rush era. The building was designed as the first Bank of New South Wales but in order to meet the banking needs of a fast changing population it made its way to the central Victorian Goldfields.
The latest exhibition showing at the Kyneton Museum is Ben & Gracie's Art Adventure: The Illustrations of Mark Wilson, highly acclaimed author/ illustrator.
The paintings of iconic Australian artists are brought to life in this exciting Picture Book series by Mark Wilson about a young boy and girl, Ben and Gracie. When Ben and Gracie visit their mum at the art gallery where she works, they lose themselves in the paintings of colonial artist Frederick McCubbin, venturing back in time to meet with new settlers to Australia. This exhibition will showcase original finished and preliminary artwork and reference material. Discover just what goes into creating a Picture Book.
The exhibition will run from 3 May - 14 July 2013
Don't forget that the rest of the Museum is open as normal, so come in and enjoy wandering around the gardens and taking in the outside displays.
