Penrith Regional Gallery stands on the former estate of artists Margo and Gerald Lewers, and it was Margo’s hope was that her home and collection be shared with the local community.  To honour Margo’s wish, key works from our collection are on view throughout the gallery and gardens, including in Ancher House Library, where sculptures by Margo and Gerald Lewers, Milan Vojsk, Bim Hilder, and Syd Barron are currently on display.  The estate and collection of artworks was generously donated to Penrith City Council by the Lewers daughters, Darani and Tanya, in 1980. In 1981, Penrith Regional Gallery, Home of the Lewers Bequest, was opened.  Ancher House Library, and the Galleries, are open daily from 10am-4pm.  -

Experience Diana Baker Smith’s ‘This Place Where They Dwell’ as its sound, light, colour and movement echoes through the rooms of Lewers House Gallery.  Together with performer & choreographer Lizzie Thomson, Baker Smith considered the sounds, rhythms, and architecture of the Lewers’ former home to prepare for their site-responsive performance. Filmed and presented in Lewers House Gallery, ‘This Place Where They Dwell’ is a contemplative 4-channel video installation that gives form to the memories embedded within the home.  ‘Diana Baker Smith: This Place Where They Dwell’ exhibits in Lewers House Gallery until August 4, open daily from 10am-4pm.  -
