Natalie Grono :: Seeker.Keeper.Lover
26 May - 24 June 2018
Gallery 5

Affectionately termed The Rainbow Region, the Northern Rivers is known for its alternate, open and colourful lifestyle, which has been shaped, by the dogmas, dreams and environmental responsibilities of its kinfolk. A melting pot of inspirations, philosophies and cultures the region attracts people from those seeking a new alternative lifestyle to those on a deeper, spiritual new age quest. 
 
This body of work documents the outward manifestations of this community’s identity through exploring the various rituals and events that connect its people, and its people to place. These happenings create a shared vision, a sense of belonging and a communal feeling of love, symbolism and meaning.
 
Included in this exhibition are images from events, such as:
 
The Channon Market drumming circle
V-Day naked swim
Byron Naked Bike Ride
Mullumbimby Music festival 
Boomerang Festival
Camp Liberty of Bentley Blockade
Spirit Festival 
Surfing Community
Nimbin Mardi Grass
