Here's your chance to check out work made by Macarthur's well-known and emerging artists.

The Camden Fine Art Gallery will host a winter exhibition from Thursday, June 27 to Saturday, June 29 at the Camden Civic Centre, Undercroft Foyer.

Art gallery owner Nan Howard said the event would feature artists from the Macarthur district as well as artists from outside the area.

"There will be a variety of works across various mediums including etching, prints, oil paintings and more," she said.

"There will also be various styles from abstract to contemporary."

New to the gallery are College of Fine Arts graduate Moira Kirkwood, an abstract contemporary artist, and Buxton-based former art and industrial arts teacher, Ingrida Spole.

They will be hung alongside of 2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show prize winners Jennifer Jackson and Victoria Dore along with Gary Baker, Sarah Howard and Lorna Pitt.

Ms Howard said the show was a chance for residents to celebrate the Macarthur art scene.

"I think the region has grown so much that we need to protect cultural pursuits," she said.

"All of the art that is for sale is fairly priced, with most under the $500 mark.

"So it's a chance for locals to pick up an original piece."

Works for resale by Nola Tegel, Olive McAleer, Norma McPherson, Leonard Long and Pro Hart, will feature alongside Steve Roach drawings and prints, and George Sayers etchings.

Vintage jewellery, glass and porcelain are also included in the exhibition.

Viewing times for the exhibition are:

  • Thursday, June 27 from 10am to 6pm
  • Friday, June 28 from 10am to 6pm
  • Saturday, June 29 from 9am to 3pm
