Penrith Regional Gallery, Home of The Lewers Bequest is the only visual arts organisation in Penrith, exhibiting, hosting and collecting modern and contemporary art. Each year we present four seasonal suites of exhibitions across our Main Gallery, as well as our historic buildings including Ancher House, Lewers House and our Loungeroom Gallery, which is dedicated to artists and projects from our local community.
Our program brings forward contemporary Australian artists, to engage audiences and provoke conversations. These exhibitions are a springboard for our Learning and Engagement programs which find bold and exciting ways to connect with everyone from babies and their families, through to senior members in our community.
We have a collection of over 2500 objects, spanning the social history of our site, key examples of Australian Modernism, and dynamic contemporary works that tell the diverse and varied stories of Western Sydney. Our belief is that the collection belongs to the people of Western Sydney, and we are driven to find new ways of sharing these works with our audiences.
In everything that we do, we aspire to be locally valued, and nationally valuable.
