Thursday 23 July – Friday 21 August 2020
The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre
We are celebrating the re-opening of The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre with Close Encounters, an exhibition of works chosen by you! There are more than 300 artworks in the Blacktown City Art Collection, and over the past month, we asked you to vote on some of your favourite pieces. The results are in, and we’re displaying your selection.
The exhibition features paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and mixed media work by artists including Simryn Gill, Annie Shin, Tony Albert, Jason Wing and Catherine O’Donnell.
The exhibition will be open from Thursday 23 July to Friday 21 August at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre.
