After a successful exhibition programme in 2013, we are pleased to announce that Lewers Learning Centre will be returning in March 2014 with a new and exciting suite of exhibitions to capture the imaginations of audiences young and old.
While Lewers Learning Centre has a summer break – we invite you to continue to enjoy the Gallery grounds as we turn the Lewers House Gallery into a Summer House as a part of the Holiday + Memory exhibition.
Holiday + Memory investigates the annual holiday experience of mid-twentieth century Australia. Dark nights, caravans, winding roads and oversized pineapples loom large upon the horizon, summoning memories of romantic sunsets and eerie shadows. Memories of fun in the sun, surf and bush retreats are accompanied by recollections of vinyl car seats, cries of ‘are we there yet’ dripping ice creams, flies and Aerogard; all typifying that beloved long, hot Australian summer.
There will be a range of interactive activities for children, parents, friends and families alike to enjoy with beach dress ups to take your very own summer holiday snap, a passport activity trail that will have you exploring the exhibition to earn your travel stamps and a range of Australia’s most loved family holiday board games to play.
On Show 16 Nov – 23 Feb 2014
