THE centenary of the First World War is being commemorated this November with three separate exhibitions in Mullumbimby

Re-Membering Our Anzacs will run from November 11-17 at Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club and opens directly after next Tuesday's Remembrance Day service at the cenotaph in Mullumbimby.

Under the direction of local ceramic artist Deborah Gower, the exhibition features works inspired by the memorabilia of descendants and relatives of Mullumbimby soldiers who fought in the First World War.

There is one special artwork made from wooden crosses supplied by the Australian War Memorial and carrying messages from descendants and school children.

"I am honoured to be part of this project," said Ms Gower.

"It brought to life the names of veterans who are commemorated at the cenotaph and gave character to the faces on the photographs that appear in the gallery of the ex-services club."

Other exhibitions running during November include:

Scouting Out Our Anzacs, which runs until November 30 at the Richmond-Tweed Regional Library Station;

An Explosion of Memory - Our Anzacs runs until November 30 at The Art CUBE in the foyer on Byron Shire Council.
