No Turning Back: Bob Cunningham

Every day until Sun 26 May 2019
Open 10-4 Wed-Sun
Eskbank House Museum’s new exhibition No Turning Back explores the story of Bob Cunningham’s artistic career and life in Lithgow. The exhibition includes ceramics, paintings, prints and sculpture which have never previously been publicly exhibited.

“Bob Cunningham has made an important contribution to Lithgow’s cultural life,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Cr Ray Thompson. “His studio and pottery are well-known and fondly remembered by many residents of Lithgow. Cultural endeavour is a critical part of Lithgow’s future economic success so I’m excited to be officially opening this exhibition to the public on Saturday 23 March.”

Bob Cunningham said about the exhibition: “It exceeds all expectations. It’s been wonderful to see so much of my work gathered together. I am honoured to have the opportunity to exhibit at Eskbank House Museum.”

No Turning Back tells the story of Bob Cunningham's life and work in his own voice. Information displayed in the exhibition was collected during oral history interviews in 2019. The show includes works from the full range of Cunningham’s output and the length of his career. It includes sculpture, paintings dating from 1951 to 2013, ceramics from both Cunningham’s Lithgow Pottery period as well as those produced post-1994 from his home studio in the Vale of Clwydd. Many of the works, such as his monotype series, have never previously been publicly shown and are from the artist’s own collection. Photographs documenting Cunningham and the Lithgow Pottery studio dating from the 1970s and 1980s are also exhibited.
