Lismore Regional Gallery
Lismore Regional Gallery is the fifth oldest regional gallery in New South Wales supporting the Lismore City, Byron Bay, Bangalow, Nimbin, Lennox Head, Casino and Kyogle communities. Lismore Regional Gallery presents a changing program of nationally siginificant exhibitions as well as exhibitions that explore the social, historical, creative and cultural aspects of the region.
The Gallery’s collection features significant Australian artists such as Margaret Olley, Lloyd Rees, Albert Namatjira, Thea Proctor, Lindy Lee and Kevin Connor and well-known artists from the Northern Rivers region such as Jan Davis, Bronwyn Bancroft, Angus McDonald, James Guppy, Melissa Hirsch, Robyn Sweaney, Michael John Taylor, Patsy Hely and Tony Nankervis. The Gallery holds a unique collection of photographs giving prominence to the 1973 Nimbin Aquarius Festival, perhaps the most famous of the region’s many local celebrations.
