Lithgow Community Projects and Lithgow City Council are partnering to present the 2016 International Women’s Day Exhibition from 8 to 26 March 2016 in the Courtyard Gallery of Eskbank House and Museum.
The exhibition showcases the amazing, creative, diverse and innovative skills and talents that women possess.
“Women everywhere contribute to many social, economic, cultural and political achievements,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham. “Every year we honour this contribution with an exhibition at Eskbank House and an opening event to celebrate local women.”
Women in the Lithgow area are encouraged to enter an art work in the exhibition. The piece could be painting, photography, pottery, sculpture or any other field of art. There is no entry fee and art works may be for sale. Expression of Interest forms are available at Lithgow Community Projects (28c Main Street, Lithgow), by calling 6351 2230 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
The exhibition will run from 8 to 26 March 2016 and will be officially opened at an afternoon tea at 5.00pm on Tuesday 8 March 2016. Artists are encouraged to bring along family and friends and the community is invited to join the celebration as well.
Providing a range of programs celebrating the cultural diversity and rich heritage of our local government area is part of Council’s Caring for our Community strategies in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
