Waste 2 Art Exhibition

Waste2Art Winners 2018

19th May – 10th June 2018

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 responded to the challenge of creating artwork from materials that would otherwise be discarded as rubbish and end up in landfill. The Waste 2 Art competition and exhibition, a Netwaste initiative, seeks to raise awareness of environmental issues.

Judges of the 2018 competition were Sharon Howard, Director of Gang Gang Gallery, and Nigel Campbell, Waste & Recycling Coordinator for Lithgow City Council.  

The following winning entries will go on to represent the Lithgow LGA at the regional exhibition in Narromine from June 23 – July 21 2018.
