Arts Northern Rivers is calling out to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from, or who have a strong connection to, the Bundjalung region to join the upcoming Art on Bundjalung Market.
Expressions of interest to participate in the market are open until October 20 and welcome a mix of established and emerging artists and collectives employing traditional and contemporary materials including weaving, ceramics, carving, photography, painting and textiles.
The art market is returning to the Quad in Lismore on Saturday, December 4 and will exhibit and celebrate the creative cultural heritage of the Bundjalung region. The inaugural 2019 event provided a unique opportunity to purchase authentic Indigenous artwork and to meet the makers. Featuring over 30 artists, the free family day included live music and performances, cultural food stalls, creative workshops and more. Drawing large crowds, the included artists generated over $35,000 in sales.
Arts Northern Rivers is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our region. Regular updates will be posted online regarding any changes to the event.
