Latest additions to Culture Maps

Autumn in the Central NSW has been boom time for local galleries – new ones opening up and existing ones re-opening after a revamp.

Keppel Street Bathurst welcomes The Velvet Buzzsaw gallery at number 59 and Abstract Reflections at 1/7 Keppel, both showing very cool work by local artists. They join Dean Mobbs Gallery, Louise Ranshaw’s pottery studio and of course Bathurst Regional Art Gallery alongside Bespoke & Co all in the same two block stretch of Keppel St. Check these out all on the GALLERIES or HANDMADE maps.

In Canowindra artist David Isbester has reopened (and renovated) his beautiful gallery (his landscape and streetscapes are stunning) and artist Melissa Barber has reopened her gallery as a combined coffee shop (fast becoming the caffeine, chat and cake stop for creatives in the area). They join lots of other great things to explore in Canowindra (museums, bushranger tours and more – also check out the beautiful Perennial Plants, not a gallery but it looks STUNNING and is owned by beloved Central West musician Nerida Cuddy and her husband.)

In Blayney the fantastic new PLATFORM Arts Hub at Blayney Railway Station opened with its very first exhibition, the annual Textures on One on April 9. Visit the space for a changing rota of exhibitions and an historical display Thursday through to Sunday 10am to 4pm. See photos of the space and the opening event here.
