Pictures of You

Sat August 15 - Sun October 11

Bathurst Regional Art Gallery is delighted to announce a community photo portrait exhibition titled Pictures of You, with entries to the exhibition open to all members of the Bathurst community.

The COVID-19 pandemic turned life on its head, separating friends and colleagues. As restrictions ease, BRAG invites you to share a photographic portrait of someone significant to you. The portrait could have been taken during isolation, or more recently.

This is a great opportunity to have your photograph exhibited at BRAG and to be part of a community event. The exhibition will be a good chance to see members of the Bathurst community and to see and read about the different stories of people’s experiences in lockdown.

The exhibition will present the selection of community submitted photographic portraits as prints in the gallery space and as a digital exhibition on the BRAG website.

Pictures of You is open to photographers of all levels.
