CALLING all beards (and their owners): Splendour in the Grass and the Lismore Regional Art Gallery need you.
The facial growths will star in Rumspringer, the follow-up to last year's Barnraiser.
In the 2013 Barnraiser project, an old-style barn-raising took place during the festival, with participants dressed in the style of the Amish as they constructed the barn.
This year, the Lismore Regional Art Gallery is again collaborating with the festival with a new major work by Western Australian artist, Bennett Miller, who last year produced Barnraiser.
In stage two of this artwork, Miller's barn will reappear, but it will be repurposed and the new work requires beards. Lots of beards...
"This year the work takes the title Rumspringer and again men involved with the work require beards to fit with the work's ethos," Amy Miller from Lismore Regional Art Gallery said.
"Miller's arts practice has a strong 'community' element with the callout process and final participant group largely shaping the project."
The gallery has put the call out for beards and their owners to send a photo of themselves to be considered for selection in Rumspringer.
"We're looking for a range of beard styles - the bigger the better," Ms Miller said.
"We'd like the beards to be local, but mainly we are looking for people who are willing to participate over the three days of the festival."
The gallery is on the hunt for the 15 best beards to be part of the new work. All styles will be considered.
If you and your beard are keen, contact the gallery before June 6 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

In the Amish culture men stop shaving their beards when they marry.
The Amish steer clear of moustaches, reason that throughout history the moustache has been used in the military tradition and is therefore forbidden to the Amish.
