Add this to the list of attractions in Ararat. Housed in the lovely old town hall this free attraction is worth a quick look when you stop and take a photo of the stately old town hall. An easy walk from the train station.

Only a few artworks to be seen, but choice pieces by local artists. Don't walk by, drop in, despite the small size it is very interesting.
