A special selection from the Gallery's collection

Susi Muddiman OAM curates latest exhibition at Gallery DownTown

Friday 26 March, 2021

Gallery DownTown in Murwillumbah will present a new exhibition of works drawn entirely from the Tweed Regional Gallery collection.

The exhibition, Director's Choice, has been curated by Gallery Director Susi Muddiman OAM. 
"As the Gallery Director I have been working with the Tweed Regional Gallery collection since 2007," Ms Muddiman said. 

"It's a rewarding challenge to envision and care for the collection, which I believe to be a significant asset for our community today and into the future.

"When considering this exhibition, I enjoyed reflecting on the history and growth of the collection. I selected some personal favourites; some works that we hadn't had the opportunity to exhibit in recent years and works that reflect the diversity of artists and art forms across our four collecting profiles."

The Gallery's objective is to develop and preserve a collection of regional and national significance with a focus on four collection areas: Australian portraits; Artworks of regional relevance; Australian artists' prints and the life and work of Margaret Olley.

The exhibition continues until 13 June 2021.

Gallery DownTown is the annexe of Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and housed within the creative hub of Murwillumbah's vibrant MIArts Precinct located on the corner of Brisbane Street and Proudfoot Lane, Murwillumbah. 

The Gallery DownTown is open Monday to Friday 10am - 3pm and Saturday 10am - 2pm.
