‘A Feast of Artists’ exhibition at CSU in Dubbo


Wednesday, 24 Jan 2018

A diverse range of Australian artists will display their works in a new exhibition to open at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Dubbo on Saturday 3 February.

The ‘A Feast of Artists’ exhibition features works by 29 artists and is curated by Ms Tamara Lawry, visual arts and photography teacher with the Dubbo School of Distance Education.

CSU in Dubbo campus development manager Mr Bart Sykes said, “Charles Sturt University is delighted to again host an outstanding exhibition of art works by a range of leading and local artists.

“The evolving 2018 program of art exhibitions highlights the University’s commitment to and engagement with the community and a range of organisations as a vital resource ‘for the public good’.

“We have committed to stage specific exhibitions up until end of July, and an Expressions of Interest process for exhibitions for 2018-2019 will commence in June this year.”

Exhibition curator Ms Lawry said, “The 29 artists come from Sydney, Kiama, Canberra, Broken Hill, Coolah, Dubbo, and Bathurst, and will exhibit artworks in a variety of forms - painting, drawing, printmaking, video, photography, sculpture and sound.

“This exhibition celebrates the inaugural A Feast of Artists event held in October 2017, which brought together 40 Australian artists and curators to share their artmaking practice with 380 visual arts students from 29 high schools.

Entry is free to the Feast of Artists exhibition at CSU, Tony McGrane Place, Dubbo, and the exhibition runs from Friday 2 February until Monday 26 March.
