Survey Exhibition

Luke Sciberras: Side of the Sky

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. The exhibition will also foreground Sciberras’ lesser-known drawing and print practice.

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.

Winner | Glover Prize 2022

Winner | Glover Prize 2022

Jennifer Riddle

Jennifer Riddle has been announced as the 2022 'Winner' of the Glover Prize with her work 'Wanderings of the Past and Now', measuring 186 x 186 cm.

"It's hard to look at Port Davey's pristine, remote landscape without feeling the enormity and impact of its presence. Particularly as we confront the realities of global warming and the ongoing threats to our most ancient landscapes. Its beauty's breathtaking, nostalgic of another time. Yet, it's a landscape of now. And the overwhelming emotions surrounding Covid-19 and the environment's future have compounded and intensified in this moment. Perhaps the 19th century Romantics foresaw where we would be today, as they celebrated nature's beauty in the face of the Industrial Revolution, pollution and plague. Similarly, as I find myself back here, between lockdowns and border closures, I can't help but feel akin to the Romantics before me, as I ardently honour the sublime. Here, I'm reminded of the Needwonnee Peoples deep reciprocal connection with land and sea as I explore these waterways and contemplate its past and future. There are moments of stillness, reflection, and an overwhelming sense of wonderment and profound empathy for this land. Painting this landscape feels familiar, but its sentiments feel more exposed, raw and primal. And my response is visceral, poignant and euphoric. Deeply I exhale, fuelled with immense hope for humanity's reconciliation with nature."

Celebrating the legacy of John Glover, The John Glover Art Prize (Glover Prize) has become one of Australia’s most significant awards for landscape painting, open to artists from anywhere in the world.  It is awarded annually by The John Glover Society Inc. for the work judged the best contemporary landscape painting of Tasmania. Landscape painting is defined in its broadest sense. The aim is to stimulate conversations about the meaning and possibilities expressed in the words landscape, painting and Tasmania. The Glover Prize is acquisitive, selected from around 40 works chosen by a panel of eminent judges.

Finalist | Len Fox Painting Prize 2022

Julia Ritson 'Finalist' in the 2022 Len Fox Painting Prize, at Castlemaine Art Museum, with her work 'Untitled 20-12', measuring 41 x 41 cm.

"A planting of eucalypts sits within an urban framework of billboards, high-rise buildings, and the metallic flash of passing cars. The everyday realm drenched in sunlight. Colours, light, and texture within the grid embrace and dissect the form of two trunks, transforming the conventional view of a landscape.

Beyond depiction and representation, this painting captures the shifting effects of light and colour criss-crossing the surface. Like the works of E.P. Fox, opacity and transparency are at play to create a type of atmosphere. Light and the absence of light.

The universality of the grid weaves intricate links between constraint, harmony, and wildness. By fusing irregularity, chance, and accident, the formal rigidity of the closed grid is opened to reveal greater interpretation and meaning. The understanding of the work is liberated as if seeing a landscape simultaneously through multiple perspectives at once. By making the grid more open and fluid, it is forever shapeshifting.

This painting plays with colour and light, movement and stillness, leaving the viewer with an impression of their own making."

The Len Fox Painting Award is a biennial acquisitive painting prize and is awarded to a living Australian artist to commemorate the life and work of Emanuel Phillips Fox (1865–1915), the uncle of Len Fox, partner of benefactor Mona Fox.

The Len Fox Award recognises and promotes the work of Australian artists pursuing the artistic interests and qualities of E. P. Fox. These include engagement with colour and light; ambitious connections with international developments in art; and, an interest in travel and an engagement with the cultures of diverse regions and peoples.
