Queen Street Riches and Textures - Art. Mentorship. Community Engagement.
Penrith Council values the creative industries. Social, cultural and economic capital contribute to our region.
Each year St Marys Corner produces a Queen Street Riches and Textures project through the engagement of
experienced artists who work with the community and local emerging artists.
The engagement is one of creative collaborations, social interaction and conversations, between artists and community and people and places.
Queen Street Riches and Textures works with contemporary artists and through a specific artistic medium explores people and place. In each annual project a professional artist also mentors local emerging artists while creatively engaging with the community.
Queen Street Riches and Textures is constantly extending partnerships with civic, community, cultural, art and educational agencies, organisations and institutions.
Since 2012 the project has achieved great community endorsement and participation of more than 200 local residents, 30 local and metropolitan art students and emerging artists and a number of partners and associates through a well-built affiliation with regional educational institutions and community organisations.
Three catalogue volumes (Queen Street Riches and Textures 2012, 2103 and 2014) with informative essays and illustration of artists’ final achievements have accompanied three final exhibitions at St Marys Corner respectively.
