Hawkesbury Art Fair
A showcase for our artists, designers and craftspeople; and an opportunity to buy original art from some of the Hawkesbury’s best artists.
Survey of artists from the Bilpin international ground for Creative initiatives residency, which attracts and supports the professional development of artists from many and varied fields, including visual arts, performing arts, literature, music, photography, film, and hybrid arts. Because of its location, many BigCi artists in residence are interested in projects that explore environmental or ecological issues, while others use the beautiful natural surroundings as a source of creativity for a variety of different artistic pursuits.
In 2014, Hawkesbury Regional Gallery began developing and supporting artist residencies at BigCi for artists to develop new work to be included in our exhibition program. For Exploring BigCi the gallery has supported three residencies: for Kath Fries, from Sydney; Paul Mosig & Rachel Peachy, from The Blue Mountains, and our first international resident, Nandita Mukand from Singapore. As part of the exhibition, Nandita will be making a site-specific work during her residency, and completing the work in the gallery in the week leading up to the opening.

Key genres are explored including documentary photography, serial photography, performance photography and the manipulation of the photographic image. Artists include Julie Rrap, Ed Ruscha, Tracey Moffatt, Ricky Maynard, Rosemary Laing and Barbara Kruger.

Work, rest and play
The subject of play is explored in all its colorful variations in this group exhibition designed to amuse and delight, and an opportunity to ponder (for those who wish to go there) the role of play in life and art.
It was David Hockney (the influential British artist) who said, 'People tend to forget that play is serious', a sentiment with which exhibition curator, Elissa Blair, is in complete agreement. 'When it comes to art, play can mean experimenting, stepping into different realities, treating viewers as playmates or even changing identities,' says Elissa, who has gathered together some of the most exciting contemporary artists of the day to help elucidate the theme, including:
Tully Arnot, Jaqueline Bradley, Michaela Gleave, James Newton, Simone Rosenbauer, Sally Smith, Niomi Sands, Andrew Sullivan, Simon Yates and Louise Zhang
