To celebrate emerging from the unprecedented conditions resulting from the recent pandemic, the Museum of Arts and Culture Lake Macquarie (MAC) is calling for works from local artists for an exhibition of hope called ‘Reconnected: a recovery story’ to be held from July 4 – October 11, 2020.

Local artists have been invited to reflect on recovery and a positive way forward, and to share that vision with the Lake Macquarie community.

This exhibition will reconnect artists and the community directly, in the physical sense, beyond the digital and distanced world they’ve inhabited over the past months. Inclusive of recent painting, sculpture, photography, video and installation, installed inside the Art Museum and out, this exhibition looks on the brighter and more positive side of life.

Most of the artworks in this show will also be for sale, offering the community a chance to support their artists, the museum to celebrate the wealth of creativity in the City, and the artists a professional opportunity on the other side of isolation.

Lake Macquarie-based artists wishing to submit an expression of interest in participating go to the following link: https://lakemac.smartygrants.com.au/MACreconnected

A MAC exhibition project in consultation with the community.
