Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG), Ballina launches four exciting new exhibitions in August and welcomes the community and visitors to join us in the Gallery.
Hinterland | Maggie Cross
Hinterland focuses on the varied landscapes of this region. Inspired by the natural landscape, the artist uses charcoal to create dramatic tonal works that embody the energy of the local hinterland. Maggie has a background as a visual arts teacher and workshop facilitator.
Wrack | Diana White
Diana uses simple abstract shapes to project a powerful sense of underlying emotions and landscapes of the mind. Her works are based on the maritime mystery of an ancient shipwreck, a generational love story and an obsession with discovery.
Sticks no Stones | Kerrie Howland, Annie Roberts & Jeff Keyes
An organic installation of artworks inspired by the artists’ time shared at Sportsman Creek conservation area in New South Wales. The atmosphere, moods and visual imagery of this unique riparian sand island inspired the collective creativity for the works included in this exhibition.
Pilgrimage of Expression | Dianne Ingram
Pilgrimage of Expression explores the artist’s personal journey and changing vision, relating to the landscape and the figure, seeing them as independent, intertwined, and accepting of one another.
