Arts and Craft

An interesting collection of art and craft work can be seen on a self -guided tour around Oberon. The art work includes the series of Bicentennial Tapestries depicting local scenery, the mosaics in the rotunda of the Common, Harrie Fasher’s  sculpture at the Military Museum  near the RSL and caricatures of local identities which are hung in the Robert Hooper Community Centre and don’t forget Oberon’s famous Malachi Gilmore Hall!

Malachi Gilmore Hall

After a 40-year intermission, the historic Malachi Gilmore Hall has reopened its doors once more to present a wide range of artistic and cultural events in the rural town of Oberon, New South Wales. This Art Deco gem known affectionately as ‘The Malachi’ was built in 1937 and sits centre-stage in the Central West town. With its eye-catching, geometric façade and curved glass brick wall, The Malachi is considered a unique example of the interwar modernist period. As co-owner Lucy East explains, the venue served as a cinema, dance hall and roller-skating rink, with a supper room downstairs. Now you can expect to find brilliant live music performances from country to classical, film screenings, art and heritage exhibitions, dances and theatre shows. A visit to The Malachi is a celebration of creativity, a vibrant community and brilliantly quirky architecture.
