The Heritage Garden at Penrith Regional Gallery was designed and planted by the original inhabitants of the estate, Margo and Gerald Lewers. To this day, it remains a vibrant, controlled wilderness, with a number of sculptures on permanent display throughout.  Margo Lewers approached designing the garden as she would an artwork, prioritising colour, texture, and form. The result is a living, three-dimensional painting; an expansive, abstract composition that reflects the bold and experimental nature of her artistic practice.  Discover the gardens and explore the sculptures daily from 8am-4pm.  The Galleries are open daily from 10am-4pm.

Diana Baker Smith’s ‘This Place Where They Dwell’ considers Lewers House as a space that blurs lines between home, gallery, and archive.  Having been the home that Margo Lewers lived in for almost three decades, and a regional gallery from 1980, Lewers House has evolved into a living archive; something that embodies and preserves its memories, histories, and lived experiences.  See Diana Baker Smith: ‘This Place Where They Dwell’ before the exhibition closes on Sunday, 4 August.  -

Featured on the cover of this month’s Art Almanac issue is ‘Diana Baker Smith: This Place Where They Dwell,’ currently exhibiting here at Penrith Regional Gallery.  Speaking on the issue’s highlighted exhibitions, editor Melissa Peša notes: “Image, material, space and memory are interrogated, disrupted, rebuilt or repurposed [...] Remnants that form an archive of lived experiences; creating depth and dimension, and proposing conversation with their viewers.”  You can find a copy of Art Almanac July 2024, which includes a written feature by Emma-Kate Wilson, in our Gallery Store, open daily from 10am-3:30pm.  ‘Diana Baker Smith: This Place Where They Dwell’ continues until 4 August 2024, open daily from 10am-4pm.  @dibakersmith
