Pine Street Creative Arts Centre is the City of Sydney’s only dedicated, community focused arts facility, and has been in operation in its current form for approximately 15 years. The Centre aims to encourage participation in lifelong learning within a cultural and creative framework.

Artistic development is encouraged through all the Centre’s activities, including a diverse and dynamic range of arts workshops, exhibitions, community projects and events. These are designed to promote local arts and cultural activities, provide positive social outcomes and encourage local creative economies. The creative process is powerful – as well as learning to make art, the projects people work on at Pine Street can help them build self-confidence, a sense of achievement and community belonging.

The Centre offers a range of creative arts workshops for all sections of the community: children aged 5 – 15 years, youth aged 16 – 26 years and adults. The Centre also runs an Outreach program, providing creative and capacity-building opportunities to marginalised individuals and groups.

Wilcannia Aboriginal Community Artists

Artist Talks: Saturday 26 July, 11am – 4pm
Exhibiton Dates: 19 – 26 July
Exhibiton Hours: Monday to Friday 9am – 5:30pm, Saturday 11am – 4pm

An exhibition of new and recent works by emerging Aboriginal artists from the Wilcannia community, in the remote far western region of New South Wales. Situated on the Darling River, on Baarkindji land, Wilcannia is home to a tightly knit Aboriginal community and a significant number of practicing artists. Addressing a long-term trend of underrepresentation of Aboriginal artists from NSW in favour of those from NT and WA, this exhibition seeks to overcome the tyranny of distance by giving artists the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work to the broader Sydney audience, generating a valuable cultural exchange that transcends the urban-rural divide.

This exhibition includes paintings, drawings, linocut prints and traditional sculpture from independently practicing artists, artists involved in a workshop program supported by Murdi Paaki Regional Enterprise Corporation, and student work from Wilcannia Central School.

Launch: Thursday 31 July, 6pm – 8:30pm

In ancient times the Greeks referred to the process of making pottery as “The Mysteries”. This exhibition addresses the desire to create beauty in form and colour through the alchemy of clay and fire. This urge leads the maker down a path of exploration and learning while the beholder is enticed by the idea of possessing an item of beauty. Many of the works presented were fired in an experimental wood fired kiln using recycled clay bodies and ash glazes.
