Entertainment in the Byron Shire for the week beginning 5 May, 2020

Four Painters at BSA Drive-in Gallery Mullumbimby. On show until 14 May.

Drive IN Art

The BSA (Byron School of Art) in Mullumbimby has come up with a unique way of showing art during this challenging time of social distancing. They are using their shopfront window as a ‘mini’ gallery.
‘It’s a temporary gallery while the gallery is closed down. We put partitions in the window to create a smaller space. The idea was, at the height of Covid concerns, you could park your car, and peer through. It’s an opportunity to show previews of exhibitions that are currently on hold’, said Travis Paterson, the BSA Project Space Co-ordinator.
The current exhibition is Four Painters, and features the work of four emerging artists based in Northern NSW.
They are: Dale Burke, Natalia Carr, Jane Couttie, and Bernie Gooley. Originally this exhibition was scheduled to be shown in the BSA Project Space from 27 March, but had to be put on hold due to social distancing restrictions.
‘We aren’t sure what is happening – we would think the first step could be to have the gallery open without exhibitions. Classes are currently run online, with the hope of getting students into the studio as soon as possible.’
The BSA Project Space Drive-in Gallery is BSA’s temporary exhibition space, featuring previews of exhibitions that are currently postponed.
