Father’s Day Gift Guide

By  |  0 Comments

This Father’s Day, take your dad for a trip out of the city and into vibrant Bendigo.

Drawing from the art and cultural overtones of Bendigo, The Schaller Studio is inspired by contemporary expressionist artist Mark Schaller and his working studio. Working fluently across a variety of art forms including sculpture, ceramics, and painting, the Melbourne based artist uses a bold array of abstract shapes and colours to capture his visual experiences and local surroundings.

On the corner of Lucan and Bayne Street, Bendigo, The Schaller Studio is a hop away from the vibrant arts precinct. Start your day at The Pantry offering locally sourced produce, then jump on a yellow Lekker bike, The Schaller Studio tram or a Smart Car to discover the hidden gems of Bendigo.
