|Drawing Light investigates the significance of light as a determining characteristic of the Australian landscape.The tradition of portraying landscape through light, is redefined in this exhibition by the artist, whose focus is not on representing light, but rather utilising it as an essential artistic material. Through a combination of installation, lighting and painting Deray creates a fictive space in the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery, encouraging visitors to re-imagen their own concepts of the Australian landscape.|

About Blue Mountains Cultural Centre
Opened 17 November 2012, the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre features the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery and World Heritage Exhibition which is devoted to education about the distinctive environment, history and culture of the Blue Mountains region. The Cultural Centre is co-located with the new Katoomba Library.
The Cultural Centre showcases innovative, diverse, distinctive and creative cultural programs for enjoyment by residents of, and visitors to, the Blue Mountains.
Built on the highest point in Katoomba with panoramic views of the World Heritage area, it links the main shopping precinct on Katoomba Street through enhanced pedestrian connections.
Being the first publicly owned and managed, purpose designed facility of the arts to be constructed in the Blue Mountains, it is expected that the development will significantly contribute to the improvement of the economic health and cultural vitality of the Blue Mountains and the surrounding regions.
