What to do at Penrith Regional Gallery

With a rich background in art history and culture, the Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest offers an extraordinary opportunity to explore the vibrant creativity of Australian modernism. From its inception as Gerald and Margo’s 1940s escape from city life – where they hosted guests such as Patrick White while ideas ‘hurtled’, arguments ‘flared’, and voices shouted in the passionate debate – this historic home is now a place for all to experience innovative exhibitions, demonstrations of craftsmanship, events that capture local history combined with delightful gardens filled with incredible artwork.

The Penrith Regional Gallery – Home of the Lewers Bequest offers visitors a unique opportunity to explore the art and culture held within its stunningly beautiful heritage gardens. Featuring an array of captivating exhibitions, exciting workshops, and diverse events against a backdrop deeply rooted in history; this is one cultural experience not to be missed! As Australia’s premier regional gallery, it stands as a testament that great works can emerge from even greater places.
