Lismore’s Arts in August wrapped up with a Back Alley Gallery Street Party in the back lanes of Lismore over the weekend.

Artists contributed live works while live acoustic performances and market stalls were a prelude to headlining performances by Nastaij, Remi and Ozi Batla.

Project manager Nathan Eyres told Echonetdaily, ‘The art happening today is the next stage, we have done five stages now.

‘Each stage we try to do something new and show the community something exciting to be a part of.’

Shannon Jade Metcalfe created live art on the day with chalk and mixed media and told Echonetdaily, ‘I am learning to let go of things, street art is very impermanent, you can’t be too precious because it is here one day and gone the next.’
