The annual Byron Arts Classic exhibition opens today at the Byron Community Centre.

It’s the largest visual arts event in northern NSW and comprises 453 artworks from 292 artists, including painting, sculpture, photography and digital art and works on paper. All works are for sale.

Co-curator Tess Cullen says the whole centre is turned into an exhibition space, with all the rooms, including the theatre, being stripped of furniture to make way for the exhibits.

Pictured is co-ordinating committee member Lelli Brown unpacking Peter Walton’s entry called The Diver.

The Classic runs from today to next Wednesday, January 11, from 10am to 5pm daily.
