The iconic Grand Pacific House, nestled in the Byron Bay hinterland town of Newrybar has opened its doors. A collective of local artists and designers, each a storyteller in their own right, have found a home in this beautifully restored heritage property. In her current exhibition, artist and writer Joscelyne O’Flaherty explores both the narrative of landscape and great storytellers of our time in large acrylic works on linen canvas.

‘After many years and a myriad of experiences on the international media scene, I can think of nothing I would love more than to bring meaning into people’s lives through exploring the relationship between art and storytelling. And it is in this beautiful new studio that my journey is unfolding.’

Transporting us to different realms, enabling us to explore rich and life-changing experiences through the power of imagination and the art of visual storytelling is what Joscelyne’s work is all about.

‘Our lives are a perennial sequence of stories – full of twists and turns, of triumphs and adversity – at once simple, complex, and infinitely nuanced in their diversity. There is nothing more powerful than a shared experience – and sharing our stories is instrumental to finding greater connection and bridging the gaps between us.’

Here, along with a rolling feast of collaborations, you’ll find fine art, photography, textiles and collectables – each with a story of their own to tell.

Join us all at Grand Pacific House in Newrybar to celebrate the works on show in style this Saturday 27 August, 4–8pm, or stop by Thursday through Sunday between 10am and 3pm for a viewing and a yarn.
