Brothers Coming Together of the Bundjalung Nation

On Friday March 21 Arts Northern Rivers will launch Bunarm Bologaman Wahl Bundjalung (Brothers Coming Together of the Bundjalung Nation), an exhibition of works by 12 leading Bundjalung artists who have a deep connection to the culture of the Bundjalung Nation, dedicated to caretaking culture for future generations.

With over 70 works, the exhibition will be a rare opportunity to see such a significant collection of contemporary Indigenous art.

Artists: Noel (Charlie) Caldwell, Luke Close, Eric Ferguson, Anthony Gordon, Burri Jerome, Sean Kay, Gilbert Laurie, Digby Moran, Oral Roberts, Ray Roberts, Lewis Walker and Jai Darby Walker.

All works will be for sale with all proceeds going directly to the artist. Bangalow A&I Hall, Station Street, Bangalow. Friday 21st, 5.30–7.30pm. artsnorthernrivers.com.au

Water and Light, Lone Goat Gallery

This first solo exhibition by Byron Bay local artist, Lynne Wallis, focuses on the translucence, reflection, energy and movement of water and light at play in our coastal region. Rather than replicating photographic images, she uses a variety of styles and media to create ‘distilled images’ of water and light. Not to be missed! Lone Goat Gallery, Byron Bay

Essence of Woman Art Exhibit

‘Essence of Woman’ exhibition explores the works of six local women artists, whose personal journeys form the inspiration and connecting threads of these diverse works, which reveal rich and complex interpretations of the soul, sensuality, strength and passion of women’s business. Catherine Marciniak (doco director), Lorraine Brown (finalist 2013 Indigenous Parliament of NSW Art Prize), Kathleen Richardson, Moana Pearl, Colleen Thomas and Martha Calhoun use photography, painting, sculpture and weaving to express feminine themes of eldership and spirituality. Lone Goat Gallery, Byron Bay. March 7–18 10am–5pm, Fri and Sat 10am–7pm.

Moonrise Studios

Is a new studio and exhibition space in Mullumbimby, showcasing original, handmade and beautiful work by 20 local artists. Currently showing: ceramics, painting, jewellery, textiles, art cards, woodwork, prints, hand dyed silk, fibre art and many affordable gift options. Moonrise rents spaces to artists rather than taking a commission on sales, providing a unique opportunity for artists and buyers. 105 Stuart St Mullumbimby moonrisestudios.com.au

Lismore Regional Art Gallery

Curated by Wes Hill, Living Things examines the artists Christopher LG Hill and Matt Dabrowski’s idiosyncratic approaches to animating the everyday, and considers how ambiguity can sometimes result from imbuing things with too much rather than too little meaning. Close to Home: Cecil Bown – by emphasising geometries, textures, and beauty in the contrast between the natural and manmade landscapes, we can see familiar places in a different light.

The Splendour In The Grass ‘New Art’ Commission will support a new work to be exhibited as part of the curated Splendour Arts program. $10,000 will fund the development and presentation of a new contemporary artwork in a dynamic environment that encourages critical thinking and experimentation. All application details online at lismoregallery.org

Chattral Jewellery

Chattral Jewellery is a unique collection of works inspired by the art of hand crafting adornments to reflect how we feel. Drawing from ancient Roman and Greek designs to the ornate expressions of the Victorian era, she merges exquisitely faceted gemstones, pearls, corals, coins and silk to produce delicate jewellery works that are elegant and timeless. www.chattraljewellery.com
