‘Beyond the Lenz’ is a longed for dream come true for local Award Winning Photographer Louise Richards.
“I picked up the camera when I was just 10 years of age and ran with it,” Louise told News Of The Area.
“I’ve been working towards this for years.”
“I always wanted my own shop to showcase my works but I also wanted somewhere for other photographers and artists to have the same opportunity,” Louise said.
The Gallery will cater to both professional and amateau photographers.
“It’s a very artistic community that we live in so I want to share our talented artists with everyone.”
Along with the works on the wall, Louise is also offering lessons and supplies, digital photo printing, framing, canvas and acrylic and HD metal prints.
“You don’t have to be a member of a club to use my facilities or learn the craft,” Louise said.
Louise is inviting the community to a Grand Opening of ‘Beyond the Lenz’ this Saturday 7 July from 6pm to 9pm.
“Come along and meet our featured artists and Photographers over a complimentary glass of champagne and finger food,” Louise said.
A gold coin donation would be appreciated at the door, with all proceeds going to the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Research.
If you can’t wait for the Grand Opening, the gallery will be open for business from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 7 July.
‘Beyond the Lenz’ is located in the Myall Street Plaza, Shop 3, 205 Myall Street, Tea Gardens.
