WHAT a difference a year makes. It was only months ago the future of Lismore's Serpentine Gallery looked set to close its doors. But this Friday, after renewed local support, the

community art space is instead celebrating its tenth anniversary with "Decadence”, an exhibition in honour of its colourful history.

"Being 100% volunteer operated and self-funded, the gallery is a testament to our community's desire ... to manage and have its own artist-run gallery,” said one of the Serpentine's founders, Corrine Batt-Rawden.

IT'S a bittersweet time for North Lismore's Serpentine Community Gallery,as they approach an exhibition celebrating their eighth year in action, while having to fork out funds for a window that was smashed by local youths.


President at the Serpentine Community Gallery, Helen Creed said "the coming exhibition is very exciting. Its eight years since the Serpentine Gallery opened so we thought it was worth celebrating."

The exhibition "Walking in tall grass" will also have a competitive side, as the pieces will be judged and the Serpentine Arts Prize winner will be awarded $500 to go towards their artistic career.

Corinne Batt-Rawden from the Serpentine Gallery

said at last year’s Northern Rivers Portrait Prize there was word on the street that artworks not selected as finalists would be exhibited somewhere else,

 but alas, this was not the case.

However, Corinne took inspiration from that rumour and put it to the gallery committee that perhaps other galleries could exhibition some of the unselected works – hence the birth of this year’s Salon des Refusés.

“There are so many local people represented in this body of work but the Lismore Regional Gallery can only choose and exhibit so many, so we invited any artists who were not selected as finalists to be part of

the new Salon des Refusés,” Corinne said.
