Shirley Peters - Strip

What lies beneath Centennial Park? Well, a part of Centennial Park, that is. That’s the subject of a great new exhibition by artist Shirley Peters. Definitely worth checking this one out.

Late last year we were privileged to get a once-in-a-generation peek inside one of Sydney’s most stunning reservoirs – Centennial Park Reservoir No. 1. The post, and the photos we captured, became one of the year’s most clicked on blog posts. See it again here.

Also getting a glimpse beneath was photographer/artist Shirley Peters. This is a fascinating series of paintings from Shirley’s descent beneath Centennial Park and into the reservoir.

Centennial Parklands is art. Not only has the Parklands inspired generations of artists and photographers, we also provide you with a range of artistic opportunities throughout the year. We may have farewelled the Head On Photo Festival, but there is still plenty you can do. Here are some ideas for you:

We will also be holding a photography competition for park visitors later in the year, so make sure you keep up-to-date to hear when the competition is launched through eNewsletter, Facebook, Twitter or iPhone app.
