Munitions Annex | The annex on the site of Portland Cement Works was never part of the actual cement works itself. It was originally constructed as a munitions annex around 1943 and functioned as a feeder factory to help keep up with the increasing demand of the main Lithgow Small Arms Factory during World War II. The timber flooring is set directly over a solid concrete slab. This photograph is facing towards the offices and entry lobby which allowed access to Williwa Street. Today, the building is in a significant state of disrepair, and its chances of survival are slim given that the building is economically unfeasible for adaptive re-use.

So pleased to have my work "Carduus" included in the upcoming "Blue" group exhibition at the gorgeous @cornerstoregallery in Orange. The exhibition will run from 9 - 26 August and include the work of many fabulous artists from across Australia. The Corner Store is a great little gallery space, do pop in if you are in our beautiful region!
"Easter Sunday Camel Races"
Who would've thought?! On Easter Sunday every year, the NSW Central West town of Orange hosts a day full of, yes, camel races. I was fortunate to see these races as I was there for the Easter long weekend with my family. Held at the local racetrack, Towac Park (which is used for horseracing too), the races were accompanied by a range of market stalls, food vendors and even the opportunity for a camel ride!
If you want to learn more about this diverse town, head on over to Orange for its annual F.O.O.D (Food of Orange District) Week, coming up from 6-15 April. You'll find a great variety of local, organic produce which you will be able to sample at most of the many wineries and food vendors that are a part of this special event. Head to their website, orangefoodweek.com.au, for more information.
