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.

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
