Earthcare open day

 The Piggery Lane Studios were open on Sunday when our Earthcare neighbours had a community gardening meeting with Costa the main speaker, I listened in on a number of talks about what is going on in the world of the environment,  sustainable gardening, social responsibility, effects on society and health etc... a great day weatherwise and a number of visitors were able to share in our contribution to  society through the world of the arts.

Open Weekend

The Piggery Lane Studios and Gallery is a little off the beaten track, being on the sprawling grounds of  the Western Sydney University (WSU as it is now called) but we do have the occasional visitors dropping in when they see the door open.

With the recent 130th anniversary of what was the Hawkesbury Agricultural College we had a number of former faculty and students from the 50's 60's and 70's expressing delight at seeing the Piggery still as it was!
There was a  Function at the Hawkesbury Earthcare Centre the other evening and we had 20+ visitors come across for over and hour enjoying and discussing Art.

This weekend is the annual Hawkesbury Artists and Artisans Trail (HAAT) Open Weekend, and the Piggery will be open for visitors on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April, 10 am -4pm
