Five new exhibitions at NR Gallery

TOMORROW, not one, but five new exhibitions officially open at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery, showcasing the work of six artists from across the Northern Rivers Region.

Each of the exhibitions explores landscapes in some way, bringing forth artistic interpretations and responses to various locations and offering a different vision of landscape, light, culture, time and our relationship to place.

Colleen DaRosa's exhibition A Geography of Light showcases works in linocuts and monoprinting in response to time spent overseas last year.

Faye Maxwell's exhibition, Bodyscapes, is a rough, raw and dynamic collection of mixed media on paper.

The exhibition Broken Headlands is the work of two artists - Rick Molloy and Maryanne Shea - inspired by the natural wild beauty of jagged, rocky headlands and sheltered white beaches.

Karyn Fendley's exhibition, Return to Girraween, includes new paintings of the Granite Belt region, while Aboriginal artist Mirra-Winni Gaze's painting and weaving exhibition Namaste is in response to a recent trip to Nepal.

These exhibitions are on display until February 3.
