Description

Exhibition: 4 June – 7 August 2022

Campbelltown Arts Centre (C-A-C) in partnership with Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) presents a comprehensive survey exhibition of acclaimed artist, Luke Sciberras. Held concurrently across the two venues and covering 25 years of practice, Luke Sciberras: Side of the Sky will focus on Sciberras’ extensive travels, and highlight his connection to Wedderburn, Hill End and the Central West region.

Luke Sciberras draws inspiration from the immediate environment, working directly in the landscape, capturing elements, symbols, shapes and textures of places, usually over a series of visits. Upon return to his studio, he processes this raw material and, drawing on his memories and connections to local people, creates 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.

Six new limited-edition prints developed by Sciberras are being offered for sale. The proceeds raised from the sale of these prints will go towards the development of the artist’s first major monograph, launching alongside the exhibition.
