Meet the Artist: Gabriela Soelkner

In this virtual Meet the Artist, artist Gabriela Soelkner provides insights into her practice and the exhibition ROCK FACE now on display at the Tweed Regional Gallery.

Meet the Artist: Euan Macleod and Ron McBurnie

In January 2020 Euan Macleod and Ron McBurnie spent time in the Tweed Valley region making new work en plein air in Murwillumbah, Uki, Stokers siding, Cabarita, Fingal and Brunswick Heads. Their different approaches, observations and responses present a dynamic double vision of landscapes across the Northern Rivers region.

View Meet the Artist: Euan Macleod and Ron McBurnie to gain insights into the artists’ approach to working en plain air and the exhibition 'Double Vision’ on display at Tweed Regional Gallery, 20 March – 15 November, 2020.

The exhibition Double Vision is an outcome of the Nancy Fairfax Artist in Residence Program, generously supported by benefactor Mr Tim Fairfax AC.

Programs for Families

Sally Anderson - A Window From My World To Yours

ART PLAY inspired by Sally Anderson: A Window From My World To Yours

For her exhibition ‘Arm of the Sea and the Fertile Tree’ currently on display at the Gallery, Sally Anderson uses flowers, windows and the landscape to explore how we remember or hold onto memories through objects or places. For this ART PLAY we have used Sally’s paintings as inspiration to create postcards. Using the templates provided, or creating your own, draw, cut and paste a window to your world. You can send your postcard to someone you love or keep it as a memento. This is a great activity for children and adults alike - in fact, collaboration could be key. Limited packs available at the Gallery.

ART PLAY with Ian Tremewen: Make Your Mark!

Ian Tremewen’s work ‘Black swamp reflector’ is currently on display as part of the exhibition ‘You are here: art of the region’. Watch Ian in action as he demonstrates some cool techniques and download the ART PLAY Make Your Mark! Activity sheet.

Inclusive Programs

Art & Dementia Friends

Tweed Regional Gallery staff invite you to connect with the Gallery's changing exhibition program through stimulating arts engagement and creative experiences. This educational and social program aspires to reconnect people living with dementia to their sense of identity, and raise awareness of and reduce the social stigma associated with dementia. Care partners can enjoy a mutually-shared experience in a stimulating environment. Viewing artwork together can engage, stimulate and ignite memories.
