Modernism in the Garden Free Garden Talk

Margo’s garden in spring!
Emu Island – Modernism in Place

Love garden talk? Join us for an opportunity to learn more about the heritage garden created by Margo and Gerald Lewers on Saturday 17 September 11- 3pm at Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.

Between 1950 and 1978, the Penrith Regional Gallery Site was the family home of artists Margo and Gerald Lewers. The garden played an important role in their lives being a focal point for relaxation, entertainment and creativity as family, close friends, architects, intellectuals, authors and artists all came together to enjoy the company of like minds and to argue the forward movement of contemporary art and society!

The garden is based on Margo’s interest in Asian art and design, evident in the series of connected outdoor rooms planted with wisteria, bamboo magnolia and azaleas. Under-plantings of perennials, a central vegetable garden and artwork complement both the garden and home.

Originally a farmyard and orchard transformed by Margo – planting most of the trees herself – today the garden is maintained in accordance with the Landscape Conservation Management Plan.  Join Heritage garden expert, Shane Roberts and curator, Dr Shirley Darbon for a stroll around the garden and informative talk. 

A delightful way to spend an hour outside after a coffee at the café and visiting the Spring exhibition – Emu Island – Modernism in Place.

Potted cuttings from the garden and flowers will also be on sale on the day.
