A country experience on the doorstep of Sydney.

History Keepers Exhibition

27 Mar to 8 May 2015

Take a step back in time and also see the present in this unique exhibition by the members of the Hawkesbury Artists and Artisans Trail in an exhibition of member’s creativity in Paintings, Hand Blown Glass, Timber work, Fabulous Fibre, Photography, Metal work and Jewellery.

Artists have long been known as History Keepers.

 Discover through their eyes, the art in which our members have created a visual documentation of places, scenes and events throughout time in the Hawkesbury Valley.

As part of the National Trusts Heritage Festival, The Hawkesbury Artists and Artisans Trail is having an exhibition of member’s works at Sassafras Creek Food and Design in Grose Vale Road, Kurrajong.

All work is for sale and entry is free.

 This exhibition is to celebrate the substantial contribution to the local History of the Hawkesbury by the many Artists and Art groups who live here or visited here, such as the Clints, The Windsor Group and of course great Artists like Arthur Streeton who painted the river and surrounding environments along with artists like Charles Condor. As well as female Explorer and Artist Louisa Atkinson who lived here in the Hawkesbury Highlands, and who  wrote about and illustrated all that she saw in the natural environment along with many others who visited the Hawkesbury, to paint this wonderful valley, with its heritage and natural beauty.

The Hawkesbury Artists and Artisans Trail will be exhibiting a collection of works involving the many aspects of this region.  From the landscape, the heritage buildings, to the river which sustains us, to the plains and the Hawkesbury Highlands, thus, creating a visual time capsule of what we see here now, for future generations.

This exhibition will be opened on Friday 27th March and continues to the 8th May at Sassafras Creek Food and Design, 83 Old Kurrajong Road, Kurrajong.  (02 4573 0988)
