The Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest is shining a spotlight on “Heth”- Norman Hetherington, the brilliant Aussie mind behind the beloved Mr Squiggle!
Although Heth is best known for entertaining children on Australia’s longest running kids program, he was also an incredible artist, teacher, cartoonist, puppeteer, and puppet designer.
The exhibition currently on display as part of the Gallery’s Winter Exhibition Suite is titled Heth: Norman Hetherington, Artist at War, and is curated by Heth’s daughter, Rebecca Hetherington, who also appeared on Mr Squiggle.
Get the kids involved in a bit of Aussie history, and celebrate the creative genius behind everybody’s favourite puppet.
