Waste 2 Art 2019

Waste 2 Art 2019

29th May – 14th July 2019
Opening – Saturday 8th June, 2pm

The Waste 2 Art competition returns to Eskbank House Museum for another year of art made from reused and recycled materials, challenging people to think differently about waste. Local artists of all ages are invited to respond to the challenge of creating artwork from materials that would otherwise be discarded as rubbish and end up in landfill. Winners from the local competition will represent Lithgow at regional level held at Oberon.

The Waste 2 Art competition and exhibition, a Netwaste initiative, seeks to raise awareness of environmental issues.

Saturday 11th May 2019, 6pm – 10pm

To celebrate LithGlow the grounds of Eskbank House Museum will showcase new works by four local artists. Titled Penumbra, the exhibition will explore the use and implications of light in contemporary practice. Penumbra refers to the peripheral or indeterminate space cast by light. For participating artists Julie Williams, Sarah Michell, Philip Spark and Tim Johnman, the term penumbra aptly describes their new collaboration as well as the experimentation with light as both medium and concept.

Meet the artists and wander the grounds of Eskbank House at night whilst being immersed in light-based sculpture, installation, drawing and film.

No Turning Back: Bob Cunningham Exhibition

No Turning Back: Bob Cunningham Exhibition

23rd March – 26th May 2019

Robert Cunningham was the first contemporary artist to work out of the Lithgow Pottery site, taking over the former pattern store in 1970. Cunningham founded a continuing tradition of contemporary art production in this historic building. Through regular exhibitions in his studio he helped other artists to sell their work and brought new art to the region. Cunningham’s studio was Lithgow’s cultural hub.

Cunningham worked across painting, print making, ceramics and sculpture. He was prolific, producing tens of thousands of works during his career.

No Turning Back tells the story of Cunningham’s life and work in his own voice. Works exhibited span the full range of Cunningham’s output and the length of his career.

Come and celebrate Bob’s work, life and contribution to our community in this very special opening event. Everyone is welcome.

Food and drinks will be served.
