Located at 57 Hickory Street, Dorrigo, Waterfall Way Gallery represents artists from across the Waterfall Way region. The name 'Waterfall Way' was coined by Sue Dethridge in 1992, to rename Trunk Road 78. Sue grew up on the Dorrigo Plateau, and was Mayor of Bellingen Shire Council, 1991 - 1999.
Each exhibition at the Waterfall Way Gallery is curated by Sheila Guymer. A professional classical pianist, Sheila is also Artistic Director of the Waterfall Way Concert Series. All proceeds from the Gallery are used to support music education and musical activities in the area. Sheila grew up on the Plateau, and her family have owned a farm at Fernbrook for more than 50 years. She recently returned to Dorrigo after 25 years away, having taught on staff at Melbourne University, Sydney Conservatorium, Victoria University (Melbourne), University of New England (Armidale), and the University of Cambridge (UK). She recently completed a PhD from the University of Cambridge.
