Campbelltown Arts Centre (C-A-C) in partnership with Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) are proud to present ‘Side of the Sky’ – the first survey exhibition from acclaimed Australian artist Luke Sciberras. Held concurrently across the two venues, the exhibition will feature over 50 works spanning 25 years of Sciberras’ practice and will highlight his deep connections to the artistic legacies of Wedderburn near Campbelltown and Hill End near Bathurst.
Sciberras’ work is primarily concerned with the natural landscape, and he is renowned for drawing liberal inspiration from his immediate environment. His work processes shapes, symbols and textures from place into work that is as much about the process of painting as it is about the landscape where he began, and the place of the people within it.
Sciberras was born in Campbelltown and spent his formative years assisting artists in the Campbelltown artist-community of Wedderburn. From one artist-community to another, Sciberras has lived in historic Hill End since 2000, a town he first visited in 1997 as a National Art School student. C-A-C and BRAG both represent the artistic communities that are of central importance to Sciberras’ life and work.
'Side of the Sky' will be at Campbelltown Arts Centre from 4 June – 7 August 2022.
