About 200 people turned out last night for the opening of Lismore’s first dedicated photography gallery and meeting place, the Fox Photo Den.

Housed in the old Hurford’s building in Union Street, South Lismore, the opening featured photographs from some of Lismore’s finest photographers.

Photographers included Denise Alison of Humans of Lismore, wildlife photography by Meg Gordon, landscape photographer Alex Clarke, artistic nudes by Cloud Nine’s Simon Fraser, and local artist Michael Whitey White.

Gallery founder Natalie Barovsky also exhibited some of her work.

Ms Barovsky said the gallery space aimed to foster a creative spirit based around all things photographic, encouraging sharing, learing and collaborating on projects.

There will be regular photographic exhibitions and workshops as the space develops.

Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell attended last night’s opening, which featured live music from Deana Beau Julia Belle.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
