Hawkesbury Art Fair all set to showcase local artists



It’s always good to see local creative artwork and that’s exactly what’s going to be on show at the eighth Hawkesbury Art Fair to be held at Hawkesbury Regional Gallery from Monday, 8 November to Sunday, 5 December 2021.


The event is not just about viewing local art, it’s also an opportunity for local artists to sell their work and for residents and visitors to the area to buy original art from the region’s best-known and most accomplished artists. All works are for sale.


Organisations represented at the fair include Ferry Artists Gallery, Hawkesbury Artists and Artisans Trail, Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop, Hawkesbury Camera Club, Macquarie Towns Art Society, Piggery Lane Studios and Friends of the Hawkesbury Art Community and Regional Gallery Inc.


Also on exhibition at the moment is Oliver Carney: Observation in Function.


Oliver is a self-taught ceramicist living and working in the Blue Mountains. In his first solo exhibition, he has produced a collection of stoneware objects using handmade glazes and wheel thrown assembly techniques, highlighting his characteristic sensitivity to design with both sculptural and functional pieces which blur the lines between form and function.


Exhibition dates: Monday, 8 November to Sunday, 5 December 2021

Where: Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, 1st floor, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street, Windsor

Cost: Free
