Last chance to see portrait prize

This weekend is your last opportunity to see the 54 finalists in The Northern Rivers Portrait Prize and vote for the People’s Choice Award.

The opening of the exhibition at the Lismore Regional Gallery on April 23 was packed, with people queuing in the street just to get a glimpse of the work in what was a hot and crowded, but exciting environment.

Since then it is estimated that over 4000 people have returned to the gallery to view the portraits in a more conducive environment, with hundreds of votes already cast for the People’s Choice prize.

The gallery is open today (Thursday) until 6pm and on Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm.
