Established in the former home of modernist artists Margo and Gerald Lewers in 1981, the Penrith Regional Gallery & Lewers Bequest seems more like a private getaway than a thriving arts hub.

Designed to support artists from the quaint region and beyond, the Summer Studio Residency has recently been developed to offer artists the opportunity to tackle a six-week residency on the site. Both individual artists and collectives are invited to apply for their chance to utilise a modern studio space, access to the Gallery’s curators and technicians as well, of course, invaluable networking opportunities.
