The smallest gallery in the Southern Hemisphere is celebrating its tenth year. This month it’s providing a taste of the Brunswick Nature Sculpture Walk (September 28 – October 2) with the display of Lynne Adams and Tony Butler’s work Plastic Sea Treasures.

‘It’s anticipated that soon there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean,’ said curator Dev Lengjel.

‘We are so worried about the ocean and it is up to us to make decisions about what we do with our rubbish,’ said Tony and Lynne.

‘We have to make the changes ourselves because big business and government aren’t doing it.’

Drop into the lobby of Byron Shire Council Chambers in Mullumbimby and take a peak yourselves.
