Central West Artist Antony Symons – Retrospective of a life’s work

Sat October 12 - Sun December 15

Exhibition opening Saturday 12th October 2019 2.00pm – 6.00pm

Exhibition runs 12th October to 15th December 2019 (Saturdays and Sundays 10.00am to 4.00pm, otherwise by appointment)

Best known for his iconic bronze public sculptures such as the “Lithgow Flash” (Olympian Marjorie Jackson) Antony Symons’ (1942-2018) creative output expressed itself through a remarkable diversity of mediums and styles. This exhibition features the largest body of his work ever shown and includes paintings in oil, watercolours, pastel works, etchings, woodcuts and monoprints, in addition to a spectacular group of sculpture in bronze and other materials – many of which were cast using the lost wax method in the artist’s own foundry. The complete collection of works from his Rydal Sculpture Garden have been relocated to Wheatfield Gallery for this exhibition, together with a selection of workshop and studio models, maquettes and artist’s studies spanning 60 years. Close to 400 works are included in this inspiring exhibition of an artist’s life.  The exhibition includes selected tools and working elements from the artist’s studio.
