"The Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop  (H.C.A.W.), was founded by Kevin Oxley in the late 70's. An amazingly talented and hard working young man who had a vision of promoting the Arts in the Hawkesbury, he acquired the use of some old buildings at the old Ag.College (now UWS), the Old Wool classing & Piggery buildings still in use by H.C.A.W. today. Since then there have been many prominent artists who have moved through this organisation and established themselves in the wider arts field.
The HCAW is well known for providing tuition for the handicaped, school children, retirees and members of the local community and is run by voluntees as a not-for-profit organisation. Regular workshops are held in Drawing, Painting, Pottery and other art forms. 
The HCAW welcomes you to their annual art exhibition."
