Description:

This year marks the Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre’s 30th anniversary. The Tweed Regional Gallery (formerly known as the Tweed River Art Gallery), opened during the Bicentennial Year of 1988 in a restored Federation-style family home located on the bank of the Tweed River on Tumbulgum Road, Murwillumbah. After much fundraising and a generous donation of land by Doug Anthony AC and Margot Anthony, the Gallery moved to its current scenic rural location in Murwillumbah South in 2004. The facility was designed by award-winning Brisbane architect Bud Brannigan. The second stage of the building was opened in 2006 by iconic Australian painter Margaret Olley AC, and in 2014, the Margaret Olley Art Centre officially opened, which included a re-creation of rooms from her home studio in Duxford Street, Paddington. To honour the Gallery’s 30th anniversary, Gallery Director Susi Muddiman OAM has curated an exhibition from the collection which celebrates its development since 1988 and surveys the four focus areas that inform acquisitions: Australian portraits; artworks of regional relevance; Australian artists’ prints; and the life and work of Margaret Olley (and that her contemporaries). Three Decades: celebrating the Tweed Regional Gallery collection includes significant works of art that acknowledge the Gallery’s reputation in the arts sector and recognise the talent of artists living and working in our region.
