Highlighting works of regional relevance, the Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre presents You are here: art of the region – a new exhibition comprising of works from its permanent collection.
The title, You are here suggests a wayfinder and the exhibition celebrates the Gallery’s unique location – surrounded by pastoral land, mountain ridges and the winding Tweed River. The works include artists’ interpretations of the landscape and characteristics of the Northern Rivers region and South East Queensland.
“We are lucky to be located in this unique, picturesque landscape,” said Gallery Director Susi Muddiman OAM. “It may be my biased opinion, but I’m sure many people would agree that this Gallery has one of the best views of any gallery in Australia. We are also fortunate to have such a high calibre of artists who live and work in the region. This exhibition is a celebration of place.”
You are here: art of the region includes works by Angus McDonald, Betty Quelhurst, Emma Walker, Geoff Hannah, Guy Maestri, Hiromi Tango, Hobie Porter, James Guppy, Lewis Miller, Margaret Olley, Michael Philp, Monica Rohan, Nicholas Harding, Robyn Sweaney and Sally Anderson. The exhibition continues until January 2021.
Since its inception in 1988, the collection has been developed through acquisitive prizes and awards, gifts from artists and philanthropists and direct purchases predominately funded by the Gallery’s support organisations – the Friends of Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre Inc. and the Tweed Regional Gallery Foundation Ltd.
