Blue Knob comfort zone

This clay on canvas artwork MaidnMare by Heather Kimber (above) and Christopher Macartney-Filgates Four Road Signs (top) are part of a new exhibition at Blue Knob Hall Gallery.

Beautiful Blue Knob Hall has a fine history in the Blue Knob area (near Nimbin). It was the venue for meetings, dances and school functions for many years. It still has dances there but these days it has added another feather to its already impressive hat.

The Blue Knob Hall Gallery and Caf displays exhibitions of local artwork and provides delicious food and drinks.

This Friday, September 8, is the official opening of the latest exhibition Out Of Your Comfort Zone.

The 17 contributing artists have moved out of their comfort zones by either using new techniques or exposing uncomfortable political or environmental truths. There is certainly a variety of media tuilegraph print, calligraphy, needle-felt wool, clay jewellery and sculpture to name just a few. (Not to mention good old acrylics and oils...)

As is the tradition there, the opening night (this Friday) features a great dinner (mushroom risotto, roast vegetables, pumpkin and spinach filo rolls and fresh garden salad) for $10. You can eat, drink and meet the artists. Be there at 6.30pm.

For dinner bookings phone 6689 7449.

Out Of Your Comfort Zone runs Wednesdays to Sundays until October 8.
