January Exhibitions | Showcasing the art of our region and beyond

Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) presents four exhibitions this January that look at two artists' joyful representations of their resilience and recovery post 2022 floods, a collaboration between two Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists working with the natural environment, an exhibition of drawings looking at the cycles of life and a front-line emergency nurse's creative response to recent shortcomings in the health system.

Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) presents three exhibitions this November that look at expansive natural environments, the home in flux as a source of collaborative inspiration and the Byron Arts Magazine Art Prize  Finalist Exhibition, which will bring together an outstanding selection of contemporary art from the region and beyond.

Complete a short survey and go into the draw to win one of two free workshops at NRCG in 2024! 

The Ballina Contemporary Art Market (BCAM) was an arts and cultural initiative developed by the Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) and Ballina Shire Council (BSC) funded by NSW Government to deliver a one-day art market event, activating the NRCG and Ignite Studios arts precinct. The project was initiated by NRCG to provide creatives across the Northern Rivers region with an opportunity to sell and promote their work, engage the local community and businesses and showcase the vibrant creative talent of our region.

This free event was held on Saturday 14 October from 10am-7pm at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) & Ignite Studios creative precinct with over 50 arts and crafts stalls selling a range of artworks and products by local and regional artists, live music, food vendors, and roving performers.

The results of this survey will help us assess the economic, cultural and community value of the Ballina Contemporary Art Market (BCAM) and help determine whether the event should be held again in future.

We estimate this should take 5 – 10 minutes to complete - it's very quick and easy. All responses are confidential. Thank you for your time and assistance!

Winners will be drawn and notified by the end of January 2024, and will have the opportunity to select one workshop from our 2024 public program to attend for free (some limitations apply).
