Lismore’s art of fish
Art out of water: the fish of art is a new exhibition at Lismore Regional Gallery that focuses on fish.
With a its long coastline and with most of its population living near the sea, Australia has an important connection with fish – a connection that stretches way back in time. For thousands of years fish have been food, culture and an important theme in art.
Art out of water: the fish of art explores the way Australian artists have regarded fish over the last 100 years. Some of the artists are Doug Archibald, Narelle Autio, John Davis, Denis Nona and Margaret Preston.
The work of some Northern Rivers artists (Digby Moran, Melissa Hirsch, Jacqui Williams, Anita Lord) is also included in the exhibition.
Art out of water: the fish of art runs till April 17.
The gallery is open 10am-4pm Tuesday to Sunday.
