Australia's largest and oldest regional art gallery, the Art Gallery of Ballarat, has reopened. To celebrate, it's currently showing solo exhibition Anne Wallace: Strange Ways, which is running right up until Sunday, September 20. So, if you were hoping for a bit of respite from the big smoke, why not go on a quick trip to Ballarat to get your next art fix.

Australian artist Anne Wallace is known for her figurative paintings, which often take cues from various pop cultural references. Her works are at once dreamlike and grounded in reality and usually demonstrate an interesting use of perspective. The result: an awkward tension upon viewing. Initially a QUT Art Museum exhibition, Strange Ways is now touring in Ballarat, featuring 50 works from public and private collections over the past 30 years.

The Art Gallery of Ballarat is showing the exhibition for free, however you'll need to book in a time to visit in order to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions. You can book via the gallery's website.
