What’s your opinion on the COVID vax?

Even though the Federal government refuses to take responsibility for the slow rollout of COIVID vaccines across the country you can still have your say on its rollout locally.

Internationally respected Tweed Heads artist Hiromi Tango is looking for members of the community to be involved in her upcoming art project for the Lismore Regional Gallery next month.

The project, titled Art Magic: Remnant, will culminate with an exhibition from September 12 to October 24.

The exhibition will take the form of a ‘fantastical ecosystem’, with elements responding to native plant species that grow (or have grown) locally in Lismore.

It will be populated by local animals, insects, and imaginary hybrid creatures.

Hiromi is using the concept of rainforest regeneration as a metaphor for environmental and emotional healing. She has a strong belief in the therapeutic qualities of her process and this is one of her reasons for her sharing her techniques.

Community groups already involved include Jiggi Makers’ Circle, Lismore Yarn Guerrillas, R.E.D Inc, Jarjum Pre-school, The Crafty Mummas, Fromelles Aged Care, Lismore TAFE visual art students, Southern Cross University visual art students, as well as artists from the Lismore’s deaf community.

Activities will be taking place in The Art Magic: Remnant Pop-up Shop, Shop 17 of the Star Court Arcade. The shop is open Thursdays, 10am-4pm. Please feel free to drop in and get involved. Art Magic Kits can also be picked up from the Pop-up Shop if you prefer to work from home or elsewhere.

If you would like to participate, please contact, Claudie Frock: email [email protected], or phone 02 6622 2209.
