In the early 1900's 'The Piggery' & 'Piggery Lane' were an important and active part of the Hawkesbury Agricultural College. In recent times the renamed building 'D9' on 'Campus Drive' at Western Sydney University, Richmond NSW. 'THE PIGGERY' is now part of the Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop and has become the Working Studios and Gallery’s of six artists. Information on open days, workshops, and events will be made available on the Blog.
So far I have only painted one portrait in the 'Piggery' but Bert Moriarty came round today and I was able to start a 24 x 18 oil Portrait of him in about 100 minutes... hopefully he will be able to come round again next week so that I can do more to it!
