It’s all happening in Murwillumbah this month with the ‘Marion Hall Best: Interiors’ show at the Tweed Regional Gallery, and the opening of the ‘Gallery Downtown’; an annex of the regional gallery at the M’Arts precinct. Mur’bah as the locals call it, is a big country town that is steeped in colourful art deco buildings, and at the heart of this town is a rich farming history and an array of innovative small businesses.
M-Arts is taking off in the CBD…
The recently opened M’Arts precinct has tongues wagging with its eclectic and open plan style. A disused industrial space is now home to artist’s studios, makers markets, an Italian eatery and the ‘Gallery Downtown’- a showcase of works from the famous Tweed Regional Gallery.
The opening exhibition of the ‘Gallery Downtown’ is the Tetralogy exhibition, featuring over 20 works by local artists from the Tweed Regional Gallery’s collection across these four themes including portraits, artists’ prints, ceramics and photography.
