LISMORE Event Photographer ~ Lismore Regional Gallery Opening

November 03, 2017  •  1 Comment

After decades of passionate work and dedication by a group of vision driven human beings, last Saturday saw the opening of the new Lismore Regional Gallery. Located in the old 'C Block', the building begins its latest identity as a place for both local, interstate and now even international art exhibitions. Attended by many local creative people and a few relevant imports, there was much cheering and acknowledgement for key individuals responsible for the amazing new space. If I sound all gushy, it's because I am! Still can't quite believe it has happened after decades of trying, but so grateful that the dream is finally a reality.

For those who notice, there are lots of little details left from the old building, including flood heights, nuts, bolts, levels and paraphernalia.

Apologies to all artists who have not been credited. Too much excitement and distraction on my behalf. Will have to go back, research and rectify. Not a chore at all to return to such a fabulous space!
