Penrith Regional Gallery Collection

Originating as a bequest in 1978, the Penrith Regional Gallery Collection consists of over 1600 objects, primarily featuring paintings, sculptures, works on paper and photography. It was Margo Lewers’ wish that her former home and artwork collection be given to the people of Penrith. This ambition was honoured by her daughters Darani Lewers and Tanya Crothers and the Penrith Regional Gallery was officially opened in 1981.

Gerald and Margo Lewers were actively involved in the development of the visual arts, particularly within the Sydney art scene, and keenly interested in the development of modern art practice. The Penrith Regional Gallery continues to acquire works in areas that reflect, explore and critique the practices, histories, interests and philosophic commitments of Gerald and Margo Lewers, their contemporaries and Modernism.

The Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest Collection includes:

  • Paintings
  • Works on paper
  • Works on fabric
  • Sculpture
  • Aboriginal rock engravings
  • Furniture and soft furnishings
  • Books, publications, photographs and printed ephemera
