Murwillumbah wows with diverse autumn exhibitions

Just over the border lies an artistic treasure trove just waiting to be discovered by enthusiastic Gold Coast daytrippers.
 
Nestled in the thriving M-Arts Precinct Murwillumbah is the Gallery DownTown, annexe to the famous Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre.
 
This autumn sees the gallery and precinct come alive with three exciting and very different exhibitions.

‘Incandescence’ by Dave Sparkes (29 Mar – 12 May) focuses on the ‘against daylight’ viewpoint to create atmospheric landscapes and seascapes from the east coast of Australia.

‘Supersymmetry’ by Kath Egan (29 Mar – 12 May) is an abstract sculpture exhibition which explores ideas of interconnectivity through a network of red threads and a constellation of nails.

Finally ‘The Silence’ (12 Apr – 5 May) is a contemporary photography exhibition exploring moments paused in time, the moment before, the moment after, the silence of being, including works from some of the finest local photographers.

Make a day of it in Murwillumbah by visiting the galleries, checking out some of the beautiful art deco architecture in the area, drinking in the spectacular views of the region, browsing local antique stores and visiting some scrumptious local cafes.
