The Australian Character exhibition (Tweed River Art Gallery) proposed visit

I saw an article in the week before last’s Review on the Weekend Australian about Tracey Moffatt, her protrait Tracey with Mirror (1995 – held at Tweed River Art GalleryMurwillumbah) and modern Australian photography.

It highlighted this exhibition which is being held at the Tweed River Art Gallery (Murwillumbah) and there is a free floor talk by the curator on the Moffatt portrait and other works in the exhibition on 6 April at 11am.

I am planning to go and wondered if any other local photographers would like to join me?  I do plan to put this on RedBubble and AusPhotography forum and in a couple of my Flickr groups too.

In addition to the art – which unfortunately we cannot photograph! – the Gallery has a lovely cafe (lunch anyone?) and gardens with some unusual native specimens I have not seen elsewhere.

So please poke your lens up if you are interested.  If anyone wants to make a day of it we could do sunrise along the Tweed River somewhere, and possibly visit Uki afterwards (alternate lunch venue) and get some nice reflection shots under the bridge there.

I have emailed the gallery to see if we need to make a booking to attend

  1. Lesley, I didn’t get to the talk as the car mucked up and I have just had a toe operated on. But I’d still love to see it and the exhibition is on until 16 October. Maybe we can get together for an afternoon at the Gallery? How’s last half of May suit you?
