Dia del Muerto

Bendigo is in a wedding craze at the moment with the exhibition happening up at the Art Gallery. El Gordo in Chancery Lane have got an interesting little show on with the wedding theme. A large portrait of a "Dia del Muerto" bride and groom by artist Daniel Butterworth graces the laneways wall during the day, and inside the new Salon Comedor.

Other pieces include black & white photographs and paraphernalia such as a 1959 Barbie and Ken wedding couple and little cake toppers. I love how kooky this show is compared to the traditional wedding and the whole Day of the Dead feeling continues through it all.

The show runs until October 28th, you can have some lovely coffee & food while visiting also. There is also an online album for the unusual wedding photograph found online, you can find more information over here.
