When Lismore Art Space Opens Later This Month It Will Host Photographs, Paintings by Narmada and Brazilian Music; Indian Influence to Lismore with Love


NARMADA Smith is a recently arrived city refugee - an escapee to the Northern Rivers from the skyrocketing rent prices of Sydney.

She landed in Lismore four months ago, looking for somewhere to live and a studio where she could practice her art; paintings infused with the spices of India - a country she habitually visits - as well as the shades of green of the North Coast.

Narmada arrived as local Led Zeppelin-photographer Ted Harvey was opening an historic Lismore factory he had renovated into artists' studios to support the vibrant but under-resourced arts community of the region.

Lismore Art Space, as the studios are known, will be opening later this month with Narmada as the featured artist.

Narmada traced the steps that led her to Lismore beginning with an event that permanently changed the landscape of the region.

"I've been coming to the Northern Rivers since I went to the Aquarius Festival," she says. "Aquarius was fantastic and I fell in love with the region - it has the benefit of nature and my son lives here now so, which has made moving here easier. Sydney is a difficult place to live if you're an artist; we are priced out because of how expensive the rents are now."

Lismore Art Space was created to encourage and support established and emerging artists living in the region.

There are six studios, varying in size, which are light, airy and non-residential.

"It's really important for artists to have a space to work, it helps an artist to remain focused," she says. "Being an artist can be quite isolating, so the six studios encourage networking and collaborations between artists, which ultimately strengthens the arts community and the art works we produce.
