Luke Sciberras - Solo Exhibition Presented by Rosby + Sculptures in the Garden
Expertly curated by Kay Norton-Knight, and back by popular demand, Rosby will once again be hosting an exhibition to mark the opening night of the iconic Huntington Music Festival held on-site at Huntington Estate.
The solo exhibition by revered Australian Artist, Luke Sciberras, will explore his connection to and depiction of the landscape through a series of vivid paintings.
Over the past twenty five years Sciberras’ work has received extensive recognition with exhibitions, residencies and acquisitions across Turkey, China, Hong Kong, Belgium, Italy, New Zealand and France.
Represented locally by Sydney’s King Street Gallery on William, Sciberras has regularly visited and painted numerous sites in the central deserts of Australia working closely with indigenous artists of varying landscapes with the outback of New South Wales also being a recurring theme in his work.
Works from his 2019 trips into the terrain west of his Hill End home are bathed in the harsh light that bounces on the Darling river in drought, somehow capturing the delicate and subtle beauty of the river gum foliage, peppercorn trees and radiant clay soils showing that even a river, starved through neglect and parched by drought can still glisten in its own graceful way.
Sculptures in the Garden will be exhibiting a collection of sculptures throughout the grounds of Huntington as part of the festival.
Date: Friday 15 November 2019 (Opening Night of Huntington Music Festival)
Time: From 6pm
Venue: Huntington Estate, 641 Ulan Road Mudgee
Cost: Free Exhibition
Following the opening night, works will be available for viewing + purchase to the general public from 10am - 4pm Monday 18 November - Wednesday 20 November at Huntington Estate.
