OPENING: While the World Waits

Fri 4 November at 5:00 pm

Join us for the opening of While the World Waits on Friday, 4th of November, from 5pm, with live music by Genni Kane, finger food and drinks.

In 2022, artists from across the Central West have been asked to use the CD as a jumping off point and inspiration for new work. This unique opportunity for regional visual artists to create artworks in response to regional music has been a labour of love for Arts OutWest. While the World Waits exhibition is a curated exhibition in which selected artists each respond to one or more tracks, title or words on the album.

The exhibition will showcase work from across all mediums. You will see painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, moving image, animation, photography, glass and textiles.

Bathurst artist Heather Dunn has been weaving a large wall work. “This is a weaving where the cloth of our dreams are shredded and re-woven, as we struggle to adapt and stay resilient… The messages on the silk strips, typed on an antique Corona typewriter, are knotted in along the way. They rise like a cresting wave, as we are bombarded with rules, changes to the rules and a constant barrage of all things covid.” says Heather.

“It has been a privilege and joy to work with so many artists right across our region to deliver an amazing exhibition. The work is full of heart and optimism. These 20 artists show us that the level of work being produced in regional NSW is just so exciting to experience.” says Arts OutWest artist and curator Steven Cavanagh.

While the World Waits Exhibition will travel for 12 months to galleries and venues across Bathurst, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Regional, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
