2019 applications for the Byron School of Art are now open. The BSA offers a series of year-long courses that provide an extensive grounding in the Visual Arts. These are structured programs incorporating drawing, painting, printmaking, 3D studies, design principles, art history and critical thinking regarding contemporary practice.

Students can study for one to three years, beginning with the Visual Arts Foundation, leading on to Visual Arts Practice in second year, and then to the Research & Portfolio Course in third year. Course activities include studio work, field trips, gallery visits, guest lecturers, and group exhibitions. 

The BSA will also be hosting an open day on October 14. From 11am to 2pm, you can drop in and walk through the studios and exhibition space in Mullumbimby, view current students' work and participate in the open drawing studio. It's a great way to find out more about the BSA and what they offer in terms of Visual Arts Education. For those interested in the Long-Course applications, there is an information session at 12pm.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS :: NEXT DEADLINE: 27 NOVEMBER 2017

Are you interested in exhibiting with Lismore Regional Gallery?

The first floor will showcase curated exhibitions, touring exhibitions and a dedicated gallery for the permanent collection. We will balance our program in these spaces across the year so that it reflects the diverse interests and voices of people from our region and beyond.

The prominently located downstairs gallery will prioritise local early career artists in a program of about eight exhibitions per year. The gallery is approx 9.8m x 3.5m x 3.4m (h) (download floor plan here) and has gallery lighting and hanging tracks. Artists will receive a fee of $250 per show, and be expected to help with installation/de-installation. With a large floor to ceiling window, the gallery space will be highly visible to people passing by and those engaging in activities in the Lismore Quadrangle.

Exhibition proposals can be submitted anytime throughout the year and selected by a panel.
