Entertainment in the Byron Shire for the week beginning May 19, 2020

Art in the window of BSA

Drive-In Gallery

The BSA Project Space Drive-in Gallery is BSA’s temporary exhibition space featuring previews of exhibitions that are currently postponed. The current exhibition is Double Aspect, and it explores the shifting nature of artistic influence, with particular interest in the impact of immaterial dialogues on the material production of painting.
Kathryn Dolby (NSW), and Jonathan Kopinski (QLD), have never physically met. Yet through regular online image sharing and discussion, in relation to colour, memory and association, both artists have produced a series of individual – yet connected – works that influence, and in turn, reflect those of the other. It will be followed by a full exhibition at the BSA Project Space in 2021. Please contact [email protected] for all enquiries or to arrange a private viewing.

CUBE Gallery at the Byron Council Chambers presents From Greed to Gifting, by Jacquelina Wills

In the Cube

The CUBE Gallery is launching its first series of exhibitions since the COVID-19 outbreak, with a special feature on art made during, and responding to, the lockdown. The first exhibit features a ceramic sculpture by multi-media visual artist Jacquelina Wills titled From Greed to Gifting.
Jacquelina draws together both traditional and personal mythologies in this piece, which tells of the potential for this time to be a ‘hero’s journey’ – moving towards a more collaborative and caring society .CUBE Gallery is situated in the Council chambers foyer and can be viewed easily from the footpath. The COVID-Craft series will be rotated fortnightly, so if you, your children, or your family have been working on a creative endeavour during this time, please submit photos to the curator at [email protected] to have your pieces showcased.

NORPA is looking forward to re-opening Lismore City Hall to show off the new upgrades that have made it the premiere arts centre in our region.

NORPA ready to light up Lismore’s nightlife

NORPA is looking forward to re-opening Lismore City Hall as upgrades will make it the premiere arts centre in our region.
Last year, NORPA received a $1.16 million grant from the NSW Government’s Regional Cultural Fund to upgrade the audio and lighting equipment, along with outside signage and illumination at Lismore City Hall to elevate the venue to the standard of contemporary performing arts venues.
NORPA Artistic Director and CEO, Julian Louis, says the upgrade is a turning point for NORPA and the community. ‘We can’t wait to open the doors to our community in Lismore and beyond, when we are able to do so legally and safely. Lismore City Hall and NORPA, are crucial to the nightlife and night-time economy of Lismore.’
