Bendigo Art Gallery today announced its new art exhibition.

‘Bendigo Have Your Say, a love letter to Bendigo’ will feature artworks and photographs from the Facebook group.

“We want to honour those brave people who have the guts to leave comments that ruin someone’s day.” says art curator Lynne Jeffers.

“Their influence has been phenomenal in Bendigo. Where else are you taught life advice like this?” says Ms Jeffers. “Their honesty is a breath of fresh air. We want to acknowledge all the work the bullies have done to bring Bendigo together.”

To celebrate the exhibition, the Have Your Say team has released a motivational calendar just in time for the new year. $5 from each calendar goes to Lifeline.

The exhibition opens in March and runs until October.

The Bendigo Have Your Say motivational calendar is available from bendigohaveyoursay.com
