Friends of Penrith Regional Gallery
The Friends of Penrith Regional Gallery is a social volunteer group, vitally interested in the Gallery and its progress; everyone is welcome to become a member of the Friends of the Gallery.
The Gallery is a unique and idyllic venue. Nestled on the banks of the Nepean River, the Gallery is set in spectacular heritage gardens designed by celebrated artists Gerald and Margo Lewers.
It’s perfect for weddings, parties and celebrations; and also has studio spaces suitable for functions, workshops and meetings. Cafe at Lewers can provide fabulous catering.
The Gallery Team has access to a wealth of fascinating stories about art, culture and history, and the intriguing people such as artists, writers and architects who’ve left their traces at Penrith Regional Gallery.
To enhance your visit, why not book a guided tour of the site and its history or the current exhibitions, perhaps even a VIP after hours exhibition tour. Alternately you may like a free 7-minute welcome and introduction to the site and then enjoy your visit at your own pace.
