St Marys will be celebrating its rich character and history this month with the opening of the highly anticipated Windows on Queen exhibition.
Taking place on the main street of St Marys, the exhibition will tell the story of 12 historic sites through artistic posters in shop windows.
The exhibition will allow visitors to Queen Street to take a step back in time and learn more about the street’s original people and places.
There will be historic photos on display of the locations and interactive links that will allow people to find information online and listen to interviews with local residents.
Each site will tell a story and visitors will be able to discover its origins, whether it’s the history of a business or information traced on people who resided, worked, or lived in that address.
The St Marys & District Historical Society joined with local community members and a creative team of artists and designers, with the support of Penrith City Council, to put the project together.
It is the seventh annual cultural project developed under the name of Queen Street Riches and Textures (QSRT), which is an annual cultural initiative coordinated from St Marys Corner.
When to visit
Windows on Queen will be on display from 25 July until 5 September 2018.
