Lismore Art Club prepares to host 55th annual exhibition

LISMORE Art Club will host its 55th annual art exhibition from July 30.

It will be opened by Mayor Jenny Dowell at 6pm, and this year's judge is Harry Westera.

President of the art club, Meg Nielsen, said it would be a "really interesting" exhibition, with 25 local artists showing their work.

"Last year we had more than 200 artworks on show," she said.

"The exhibition is held in the auditorium of the Lismore Workers Club - it's a great venue."

The exhibition will continue until August 2, and will be open from 10am to 8pm Thursday-Saturday, closing at 3pm on the Sunday.

Ms Nielsen said the Lismore Art Club - which was established 55 years ago - had the longest running exhibition in the region.

"It's a great bunch of people, really friendly and there's a such a relaxed atmosphere, making it enjoyable for both established and new artists," she said.

"We get together on a regular basis, sharing ideas and inspiration."
