What’s On

Hazelhurst to Re-open on 22nd June 2020

A message from the Hazelhurst Team:

Following the easing of restrictions in NSW we are excited to welcome you back to Hazelhurst Arts Centre from Monday 22 June!

We know Hazelhurst is an important and valued part of our community and we look forward to welcoming you back to a refreshed and safe facility. Until then we are completing valuable maintenance and improvement works and developing new ways for you to enjoy Hazelhurst. 

As we re-open on Monday 22 June, the health and well-being of the community and our staff remains our top priority and we’ve been carefully planning the measures we need to implement, in line with government restrictions and health guidelines.

One measure we all are aware of is the need for social distancing which means we need to limit the numbers in the gallery, our studios and cafe. Initially we will open the galleries, the gardens and the cafe and you will be able to book your visit to Hazelhurst online to help ensure you can visit when you choose.

At a later date we will introduce a new range of art classes, which meet government restrictions and health guidelines. These classes will need to be a lot smaller so our regular Term Art Class Program and School Holiday Program will be temporarily suspended until further notice.

Please keep checking our social media pages for further updates as they become available.

See you soon!
The Hazelhurst Team

    RocoColonial Exhibition Opening

    Hazelhurst Arts Centre
    782 Kingsway, Gymea, New South Wales, Australia

    RocoColonial brings together contemporary Australian artists working across painting, sculpture, design and fashion who explore themes at the intersection of the terms Rococo and Colonial. In 1770 while Lieutenant Cook was charting the east coast of Australia on the other side of the world Marie Antoinette was marrying the future Louis XVI of France, this year coincidentally marking the end of the Rococo and the beginning of the Colonial.

    Then as now, issues of radical social and economic change were beginning to sow the seeds of revolution.

    RocoColonial is a major artist-initiated project by Gary Carsley and presented by Hazelhurst Arts Centre in partnership with Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG).
