Arts in August 2014 - Lismore

Celebrating the rich vein of the Arts in Lismore with Arts in August.
It's the first day of August, so Arts in August is now well and truly commenced!


R.J. Poole - "My Heart" from "Of the Heart"

The Channon Gallery launched it's Arts in August exhibition, "Of the Heart" last Sunday - just to make sure it was ready to go from the start of August. The exhibition celebrates all of our Lismore artists and features works from two new artists to the gallery, Anna Nordstrom and R. J. Poole - both exceptional in their very individual arts practices.

Now in its second year, Arts in August demonstrates its rapid coming of age, with all sorts of wonderful events, including bus and walking tours of exhibitions and cultural venues, the Bentley Art Prize, the interactive "An Afternoon of Artful Actions" on the 9th and the "Art vs Science Riverside Festival" on the 24th.

There is no excuse for the people of Lismore not to enjoy something 'creative', as the diversity is extensive. For people in Byron Bay, Bangalow, Lennox Head, the Tweed and elsewhere, a jaunt to Lismore might give a glimpse cultural values, experiments and excellence in all forms of the Arts that bubbles away west of the coast all of the time.
