Dual exhibitions in Muswellbrook and Singleton are showcasing the creative responses of 16 artists invited to mark the decommissioning of the Upper Hunter's iconic Liddell power station.

 

The "in-residence" program, part of the innovative LiddellWORKS partnership between Arts Upper Hunter (AUH) and AGL, competitively selected these artists from across the Hunter region and beyond.


During Liddell's final days, the artists gained access to the retired coal-fired station and used it as their muse, model, and subject. Some even incorporated parts of the station into their remarkable artworks, seeking to record its transformation and honour the legacy of its people. The exhibitions are currently running at Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre until 25 August and at Singleton Arts & Cultural Centre until 11 August.


Liddell powered businesses and homes across NSW for over half a century until it was decommissioned in April 2022. These exhibitions are not just about art; they celebrate Liddell's closure, offering a unique perspective on this iconic station's final chapter.


Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre is at 1-3 Bridge St, Muswellbrook, and Singleton Arts & Cultural Centre is at 23 Maitland Rd, Singleton.
