A feast for all the senses held on the last Sunday of each month

The Art of Lunch is a showcase for the extraordinary talents of our local Blue Mountains artists, musicians and chefs.

Join us for a delicious three-course themed lunch, while you meet a new artist who will introduce their works displayed within our dining room. Then, relax and enjoy a unique 30min musical performance by our featured musician.

Each month we feature a different artist, a new musical act and a new menu.

Artworks are available to purchase and remain on display for the month.

Mount Hay Rockpools by Rachel Hannan

Rachel Hannan and John Stuart
Sunday June 30 at 1pm

This month’s theme is ‘Dancing Light’ and our featured artist is Rachel Hannan. Rachel’s paintings are vibrant and spontaneous, capturing the intensity of light and shadow in mountain clefts and plateaus. The strong brushwork brings alive the atmospherics of sky and wind, scarred faces of rock surfaces and the movement of trees.

Rachel is also a vocalist and will be joined by John Stuart on guitar for a musical performance.
