Roy Dalgarno – Labour Day

When:
Every day until Sun 16 Jun 2019
Details:
30 March – 16 June
Ancher House
An exhibition with 13 prints out of 92 artworks by Roy Dalgarno recently gifted to the Penrith Regional Gallery collection by the Dalgarno family. The exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see Dalgarno’s artworks depicting miners alongside social history objects on loan from the Lithgow State Mine Heritage Park.

Roy Dalgarno (1910 – 2001) was an Australian artist committed to portraying humanity in workers’ labour as they built the wealth of the modern Australian nation. He had an enduring interest in realism in art as a way of representing the dignity and harsh reality of working life.

Roy Dalgarno – Labour Day celebrates modernism through social realism in Australian art and commemorates the gift to the community of Penrith of prints from a fascinating Australian artist.
