Northern Rivers Creative – Lismore Pop Up
The Northern Rivers Creative Pop Up shop in the Lismore CBD launches this Friday 31 July, and I’m really pleased to be involved in this local Pop Up event – amongst some fantastic local creatives.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, Northern Rivers Creative is an online portfolio site for local creative practitioners that enhances the exposure of their work and connects them to opportunities and collaborations.
The Northern Rivers Creative Pop Up will be official launched by Mayor Jenny Dowell with doors opening at 5.30pm.
As well as the wine, cheese and entertainment by local Indigenous musician Blakboi, guests are offered exclusive pre-purchase of original works, many of which have not been shown outside of the Pop Up.
With all dollars going straight into the artist’s pocket, it is a great opportunity to support local creatives and fill that empty space on your wall.
Artists exhibiting their work in the Northern Rivers Creative Pop Up are: street artist, Jeremy Austin; musician, Tom Avery aka Blakboi; visual artist, Jennifer Collins; soft sculpture artist, Margeaux Davis of Willowynn; Indigenous ceramicist and visual artist; Penny Evans; visual and performance artist, Claudie Frock aka Lady Frock; visual artist, Kate Hallen; printmaker, Lindsay Hunt; visual artist, Dianne Ingram; printmaker and visual artist Joanna Kambourian; printmaker, Leonie Lane; textile and visual artist, Jesse Mackintosh; Indigenous artist, Digby Moran; sculptor, Laila Page and ceramicist, John Stewart.
Under the same roof and throughout August, there will be an awesome program of workshops run by the creatives; from badge making to grant writing to soft sculpture inventions to how to package your brand. More info will be released this week, so stay tuned.
Arts Northern Rivers partnered with Creative Lismore for the Northern Rivers Creative Pop Up, which will be trading Wednesday to Saturday from the launch to the 27 August as part of Arts in August.
