Current Exhibition

Lions Road – Scenic Journeys

31 March – 2 May  2021

This exhibition explores one of the areas iconic roads.

Artist Sally Joyce has travelled the Lions Road many times in her life in many stages of her life. This road represents many journeys for many people.  The most important journey is that of how the road  was conceived and built. A remarkable story of community spirit and perseverance

Lions Road – Scenic Journeys is a body of work Sally created over the many years she has travelled this road.  Also featuring images by local photographers Margaret Rollings, Angela Rollings-Munns and the Kyogle Lions Club, this exhibition represents an historic, nostalgic and contemporary view of the land this road traverses.

The Lions Road is the road to Sally’s home town of Kyogle.

It is the road that Sally left home on, and it is the road that she is gratefully travels to return home.

“As a landscape painter,  I have soaked up the beauty of this road through different seasons and times of the day,” Sally said.

“Over the last 20 years, I have paused many times, at every single bridge crossing, collecting images of creek vistas for an idea I had, to one day, create an exhibition of landscapes celebrating the beauty of this majestic road and all that it stands for.

“Just like artists, the makers of this road had an incredible imagination, were innovative and creative and showed a spirit of determination that lives on in the community of Kyogle.

“I am delighted that images from the Kyogle Lions Club of the making of this road will hang on the Roxy Gallery walls and be recognised in a creative context.”

Joining Sally in this exhibition will be mother and daughter photographers Margaret Rollings and Angela Rollings-Munns with their own interpretations of the beauty that is the Lions Road.

Lions Road – Scenic Journeys will be on show at the Roxy Gallery from 31 March – 2 May.  The official opening will be Thursday 1 April, 6-8pm.
