BMCAN has much to offer its members and the wider community, as we seek to fulfil our mission to support a vibrant, sustainable, inclusive creative arts community through leadership, member services and collaborative partnerships. BMCAN is a not-for-profit organisation, run by a volunteer-based management committee.
Blue Mountains Creative Arts Network (BMCAN) has been using the Covid-19 break to develop new ideas and programs.
We have now kicked off with our exhibitions program at The Edge BMCAN Gallery which started in September, and now running our Summer exhibition and we are now planning an exhibition at NSW Parliament in 2021. The Wild Mountain Collective has already held two events this year: the July Timescapes Exhibition with Gang Gang Gallery in Lithgow, and Jo Truman’s Bridge to Otherness soundscape work with Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre. Talking Arts has continued to produce podcasts in collaboration with Radio Blue Mountains of discussions with local artists and musicians. More planned for 2021
Come along to see the BMCAN Summer Exhibition at The Edge Cinema Complex. See the Art produced by the BMCAN Creative Arts Community.
The Exhibition will run from 10am on Saturday 5th December and until 10pm on Friday 5 March 2021 in The Edge Complex, 225 Great Western Highway Katoomba. The venue is open 7 days a week from 9.30am until 10pm. Unfortunately, Covid19 restrictions mean that there will be no Exhibition Opening Event.
This year Talking ArtZ (2020) is a collaboration between ArtHouse RBM, Ian Morrison from Katoomba Music, BMCAN and supported by Nolan on Lovel Gallery. Please put aside the 1st Saturday of each month from 3pm and join us at Nolan on Lovel Gallery.
The next Talking ArtZ guests, Todd McMillan and Sarah Mosca, both successful and accomplished contemporary artists dedicated to their art practice using film, photography and painting to explore their experience of being human in a hugely changing world.
