Hailing from Eganstown, about an hour's drive from Bendigo's centre, King will work closely with gallery curators to develop the exhibition which will be on display toward the end of next year.

King explores themes such as time, environment and metamorphosis in her work and is the recipient of grants and prizes, including a VicArts Grant from Creative Victoria.

The major sculptural installation, Gimme Freedom (or gimme death) by 2016 Going Solo artist Jud Wimhurst is currently on display until February 12. Watch a preview of the work. 

An annual initiative available to one artist, Going Solo provides artists living and working in central Victoria with the opportunity to work with curators to produce a new body of work for solo exhibition at the gallery.

Applications for 2018 will open soon. Any practising artist living and working in central Victoria is eligible to apply.
