Waste to Art 2019 Competition and Workshop
Works will be exhibited in Eskbank House Museum‘s beautiful heritage buildings from May 29 to July 14. Finalists from across the state will go on to the regional exhibition in Oberon’s art deco gem the Malachi Gilmore Hall in July.
The competition embraces all ages, individuals, groups and all levels of ability. Make a work with your classmates or friends. Get motivated to make your first ever artwork for the community category or enter alongside other established artists from the region. If you’re not sure how to get started, book a place in our upcoming Waste to Art workshop with local artist Prue Mogg. Prue is an experienced teacher who will guide you through the first stages of creating a competition entry. The workshop will run on Sunday April 14 from 10.30am.
“I invite all Lithgow residents to participate in this year’s Waste to Art competition,” said Mayor Clr Ray Thompson. “This is a wonderful opportunity to exhibit your work in a public gallery while raising awareness about reusing waste. The Lithgow LGA is brimming with creative people. Local entrants did exceptionally well in last year’s regional exhibition.”
Eskbank House Museum staff will be accepting competition entries from May 8 to May 24.
Entry forms are now available from Lithgow City Council Customer Service, Lithgow Library and Eskbank House Museum. You can also download a form from the NetWaste website.
