The heart of art in the Northern Rivers, The Lismore Regional Gallery, is opening the doors for its newest exhibition where they Walked on Friday, September 29.
The exhibition includes artworks from First Nations artists from across the region, Kylie Caldwell (Bundjalung), Nickola Clark (Arakwal), Luke Close (Gidhabal) and Jenn Rowe (Trawlwulwuy).
It aims to explore the perils of Australia's colonial history and allow artists to summon the voices of their ancestors, reclaiming traditional knowledge. In this recovery, they advocate for gentler, more sustainable relationships with the land.
At 5pm, Friday September 29, the Lismore Regional Gallery is inviting local residents to attend the opening.
The exhibition will be officially open from September 30 2023, till October 28 2023 at 46 Magellan Street, Lismore.
In the following weeks, there will be a number of events and workshops as a part of the exhibition.
On Thursday, October 12 at 11 am, hear from Luke Close and Jenn Rowe about how they have used art to retrace their cultural heritage to form deeper ties with country and culture.
There will also be a workshop from Kylie Caldwell, who will deliver a workshop teaching introductory techniques in traditional and contemporary basket weaving. Participants will learn and make using locally sourced and hand-picked natural materials.
Head to 46 Magellan street, Lismore, to check out the exhibition.
