Lismore Regional Gallery’s latest exhibitions include a collaboration commissioned for the 19th Biennale of Sydney two years ago which drew wide acclaim,
‘No Human Being Is Illegal (in all our glory)’ is comprised of 20 life-sized collaborative collage portraits ‘and a collective collage process of learning and exchange’, conceived and co-ordinated by artist Deborah Kelly for the Biennale.

The other two exhibitions are by Bangalow artist Hilary Herrmann, called ‘The Voyage’, and Heather Matthew’s ‘I Was Here’, which celebrates the ‘tagging’ of graffiti artists and ‘the tradition of proclaiming existence at a geographical place in time’.
It consists of artworks created on a daily basis in concertina artist books which are further up-scaled onto square canvases.
The exhibitions are on until 2 April.
Gallery director Brett Adlington said regional art lovers were looking forward to progress of the new redeveloped gallery in the Lismore Quadrangle.
‘We have been working closely with the architects, and expect a Development Application will be made to Council by April,’ Mr Adlington said in his regular gallery e-news.
‘All going well, we’re anticipating being in the new facility towards the end of 2017.
