Dear friends of Eskbank,
What an exciting month we have ahead of us.
Our next exhibition is Primary By Design – Cullen Bullen Public School where Eskbank and the school have partnered up to bring you an exhibition of the student’s photographs and their reinterpretation in a variety of mediums. The opening is 11am Friday 4 September 2015 and you are all invited to come and meet the artists and celebrate this exhibition with them. The exhibition will run from 3 – 20 September 2015.
Following this we will have our first “We All Stand on Sacred Ground” NAIDOC Art Exhibition organised by Mingaan Wiradjuri Aboriginal Corporation. Mingaan is currently inviting the community to enter a work of art on the theme of “We All Stand On Sacred Ground”. This exhibition aims to promote learning and sharing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture within the community. Your art work may be 2D or 3D, traditional or contemporary so long as it relates to the theme. Please include a story for your art work to help share culture. Entry forms are on the website at http://eskbank.lithgow.com/events/we-all-stand-on-sacred-ground-naidoc-art-exhbition/ The exhibition will run from 24 September - 11 October 2015.
