Scott Harrower, one of Australia’s leading mosaicists, addressing guests at the opening of the five current exhibitions of ‘Dips, bits, bites, bubbles and favourite things‘ at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery in Moon Street Ballina. The opening took place in the evening of last Friday 2nd and these exhibitions run until Sunday 25th May.
The current exhibition includes:
- A highly expert and unique exhibition of printmaking, titled the Short history of the dip tin by Babette Angell.
- Dave Gray’s wonderfully engaging landscapes in oils and acrylics titled Intuitive creation of land and sea.
- Students of Scott Harrower’s Mosaic Design School, together with the master mosaicist himself, presenting this re-energised traditional art form.
- Examples of the works of artist, photographer, designer and sculptor James Sigley, on display in recognition of the inaugural award of the James Sigley Scholarship for emerging artists and artisans.
- Plus over a dozen invited artists and artisans who have lovingly prepared an extensive range of high quality works With mothers in mind – unique and beautiful artworks lovingly and individually created with mothers in mind.
Since entry to the Gallery (which is open 10am to 4pm, Wednesdays to Sundays) is FREE taking Mum to see these exhibitions is a great idea!
On May 23rd, from 6pm, the Friends present their second soiree at the Gallery, with Dave Gray and Scott Harrower taking visitors through the gallery with informed talk – with music and refreshments being served. A donation of paper currency will help Gallery operations.
From Wednesday 28th May until 29th June, the Gallery will have a new exhibition: ‘The Year of the Apology‘. This should be very special – and perhaps controversial too.
