Central West artists on display Here, Now
Works from more than 100 local artists are now on display at the Orange Regional Gallery.
The annual Here, Now exhibition features only central west artists. It is open to artists, over the age of 16, living in the local government areas of Orange, Bathurst, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan Shire, Lithgow, Oberon, Parkes and Weddin Shire.
The gallery asked artists for new works not exhibited before and created within the last two years.
Orange City Council’s Services Policy Committee Chair Cr Stephen Nugent said he was proud to open the exhibition on Friday night.
“Every year the gallery sets aside space and time to feature our local artists and it’s great more than 100 people submitted works,” Cr Nugent said.
“We’ve had several pieces submitted by young artists between 16 and 20 years old, exhibiting for the first time and that is fantastic to see… This exhibition provides great exposure and experience for our locals.”
Here/Now will run until July 28.
