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