Three of a kind

Three beautiful new exhibitions will open at the Lismore Regional Gallery this Friday, April 28, at 5.30pm.

The first is Collections Northern Rivers, which features artworks from the private collections of North Coast identities including Lismore mayor Merv King and Byron mayor Jan Barham, local councillors Ros Irwin and Jenny Dowell, ABC North Coast Radio host Martin Corben and many, many more. The show not only gives people the opportunity to see works that are normally only shared with family and friends, but also looks at the relationship between an artwork and its collector.

The second exhibition is called Relationships Australia and features the work of five Northern Rivers artists Fran Tomlin, Zom, Hobie Porter, Rachel Stone and Cornelia Burless. It looks at the relationship between people, the environment and their surrounds.

The third exhibition, Mandala, has been created by well-known local artist Roland Schicht Sunshine, who has a particular interest in these age-old art forms, which represent the universe in Buddhism and Hinduism. Roland offers up a rolling digital montage of painted, digital and photographic mandalas.

Entry to the gallery is free. All three exhibitions will be on show until May 31.
