Eskbank House and Museum, celebrating International Men’s Day this November for the third year running, is encouraging men to partner up with a younger male to mentor them and create a project together for an exhibition of men’s projects.
“An important part of life for all men is to have positive male role models,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham. “The International Men’s Day exhibition is the perfect opportunity to reach out to someone who needs a friend and do something practical together to build a good relationship.”
Men are encouraged to use their imagination and skills when creating their projects. Over the last two years there has been an amazing variety of entries from traditional painting through to blacksmithed items. Projects are only limited by your imagination – photography, needlecraft, recycled art, carpentry, restored items, models, pottery, glass work and jewellery are all possibilities. This year it would be great to have some art works to exhibit in both the gardens and Courtyard Gallery of Eskbank House and Museum.
Entry forms are available at Eskbank House and Museum and Lithgow, Wallerawang and Portland Libraries. They can also be downloaded at http://eskbank.lithgow.com/events/
