Across the border

I went on a trip last week to Northern New South Wales for meetings at a couple of galleries. First stop was at Mullumbimby to meet Nadine Abensur, director of Art Piece Gallery. Situated on the main street of this lovely rural town, Art Piece Gallery has a very welcoming feel and wonderful mix of art, textiles, jewellery and crafted homewares. Conversation about art and future events was great, not to mention Nadine's enthusiasm and energy. I'm delighted to be showing artworks in the gallery, with some exciting group exhibitions coming up in the next few months (more on that closer to the time). Thank you Nadine it was lovely to meet you.

The second stop was at Tweed River Art Gallery at Murwillumbah, to finalise dates for a joint exhibition, Susan Buret and I will have there next year. The gallery has stunning views of valley and river looking on to the dramatic Caldera, pictured above. But inside the buildings architecture and facilities are equally impressive. Our exhibition will feature works developed during a collaborative one month residency we have later this year at the Montsalvat Artist Colony in Eltham, Victoria. For the last couple of years Susan and I have worked collaboratively on a weather project, ideas currently developing are exciting, more on this a bit later.

Thank you Gail for a wonderful meeting, we are thrilled to be part of the upcoming Tweed River Art Galleries program.
