DARYL LINDSAY: a man of many faces 

Sir Daryl Lindsay opened the museum November 1970. This exhibition will highlight many aspects of his life. Leaving school to start a career in banking which he found not to his liking, left for Queensland for a pastral profession. In 1915 enlisted as a Private and served in France. During leave in England in 1917 his drawing talent was recognised and he was appointed to help the Australian surgeons at Sidcup. After the war he decided to use his artistic talents and became an artist and administrator.

Artwork from the museum's own collection and the Art Gallery of Ballarat. The committee appreciates the support of the Gallery.
