What’s Happening at MAC?

Over the holiday season, the new-look Museum of Art and Culture at Lake Macquarie welcomed many people through the doors enjoying the art, activities and respite from the warm weather. MAC's opening exhibitions highlighted the stories that unite us, human and cultural connection to the elements and generosity of spirit – all much thought about and needed in our current climate and conditions.

Looking ahead, 2020 at MAC will provide creative outlets and experiences for all, launching new programs including Late MAC, MAC Saturdays, and a History Illuminated cruise series. The free ArtSpace artmaking each Sunday, art classes for adults and children, teachers' days and HSC clinics will also continue.

Upcoming events include new evening exhibition openings, a talk with Mervyn Bishop, a Connect to Country cultural day under the yapang program banner and performances by Catapult Choreographic Hub complementing the annual First Class project.

Term 1 art classes commence on 3 February. Adult courses include life-drawing, acrylic painting, natural history illustration, drawing fundamentals and Wednesday waterfront studio. For children 6–10 years, Art Club will be on each Tuesday.

There is a great line up of exhibitions over the next six months including touring shows from the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, The JamFactory and Artspace Mackay as well as MAC curated exhibition projects.
