Pencil Art Exhibition by Roderick Heath
Wed 1 November - Thu 30 November
Lithgow Library is thrilled to announce that local resident Roderick Heath has chosen to exhibit his latest art exhibition at the Lithgow Library. The library walls will be full of his dramatic pencil art works during the month of November 2023.
Discussing his latest collection, Roderick states “I love drawing people, particularly in a busy environment, interacting with something other than themselves. I need both to engage all my skill and make me feel like I’m stretching it, always taking it to some new level”.
Roderick’s exhibition pieces range from extremely complex pictures to simple portraits. Rich, poor, young, old, famous, obscure, from the past to the world today, from down the block to around the world – Roderick’s art captures them all.
His latest work in the exhibition involved some 150 hours of labour!
This will be the library’s last exhibition for the year so make sure you stop by and be amazed by the superb pencil art that is Roderick Heath’s preferred medium.
