Have you ever had your photo taken at an Art Is... event? If so, chances are you feature in the Art Is.. Festival's latest exhibition.
Twenty-five years worth of memories, performances and creativity take centre stage in a nod to the festival's history.
The exhibition showcases the early years of the festival, with a particular feature being hundreds of photographs of participants enjoying the activities and creations that have made up the festival since its inception.

The original photographs are all available to take home for a gold coin donation.
Gill Venn, who has maintained an involvement over the whole life of the festival and has curated the exhibition, is encouraging people to take their memories home.
"It's better that these snapshots of our region's creative history should be reminders of people's involvement of that in their homes than in storage in our office", she said.
"I recognise many of the children from the first five years who have grown and are now young adults contributing in different ways to our community.
"Our festival's history is not just ten days each year, it is also a series of moments of our community's development."
MAKING NEWS ACROSS THE WIMMERA:
Alistair Shaw said that the exhibition is amazing in revealing the continuing breadth and quality of the annual festival.
"The exhibition is great because it's so bright and eclectic - reflecting that so much happens each festival, a unique contribution to regional Victoria on show to brighten our lives while other aspects might not be exactly as we want", he said.
"Each program, photograph and poster will bring back memories for those privileged enough to have been part of those iterations of the festival, and for me ideas for how that history and those activities might be able to be reshaped into things we consider for the future", said Dr Shaw.
The exhibition is open at Redrock Books and Gallery, until October 3.
The festival has also established an online repository for people to deposit their own digital memories, for more information contact email@example.com.
