FOOD - GLORIOUS - VIEW

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD THERE ARE SOME AMAZING PLACES THAT SIMPLY MAKE YOU FEEL ALIVE AND  INSPIRED BY THEIR BEAUTY. THE TWEED VALLEY IN NORTHERN NSW IS ONE OF THOSE PLACES.

Open Wednesdays to Sundays, 9am - 5pm (NSW time)

for breakfast, lunch and light snacks.

Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

 

Located in the heart of the Tweed Valley on the outskirts of the township of Murwillumbah is where you’ll find the renowned Tweed Regional Gallery. Sitting high upon a hill overlooking the Magnificent Green Cauldron with the Mount Warning Shield Volcano dominating the skyline. The views are a breathtaking panorama of rolling hills and valleys with the Tweed River meandering through them.

When visiting the artworks on display at the gallery it is easy to be distracted by this incredible view and that ‘s why the Tweed Gallery Café perfectly complements every gallery visit. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy fine food, delicious home style cakes, coffee, tea or glass of wine. The café opens onto an outdoor balcony which runs the length of the Gallery and faces onto a cosy garden area shaded with large cafe umbrellas.

Events

There are always amazing and inspiring exhibitions being held at the Tweed Regional Gallery. This exceptional gallery is an architectural delight and is home to some of Australia's finest artworks in a variety of media.

The gallery collects artworks of two main themes: Australian portraits of all eras and mediums, as well as works by regional artists depicting the local area. Exhibitions change every six to eight weeks and cover a variety of artistic mediums.

The gallery's program includes a wide variety of exhibitions, public events, craft markets and educational activities for children and adults.

The gallery is the proud home of the biennial Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture and the Biennial CPM national Print Award. The Border Art Prize is also shown every other year for artists from the New South Wales/Queensland border.

The Margaret Olley Art Centre, opened in 2014, celebrates the career, life and legacy of its namesake, Margaret Olley – Australia’s most celebrated painter of still life and interiors.  This incredibly detailed exhibition honours the late artist's wish that her studio and elements of her home be re-created in a purpose-built extension to the Tweed Regional Gallery, and is a permanent display. 

 

Artists on display

We love supporting local artists!

In addition to the artwork in the Gallery proper, we welome our guests to peruse the work of local artists on display in the cafe.

The artist we are currently featuring is... 

Travis Paterson

Travis Paterson is an artist and educator based in Northern NSW whose work encompasses both traditional and digital printmaking. His work primarily addresses ideas of identity, sexuality and queer histories. Upon graduating from Southern Cross University he was awarded the Kaske Fellowship enabling him to co-curate a touring exhibition of Australian printmakers that was shown in Bristol, UK, as part of the renowned international IMPACT conference. In 2013 he won the Ursula Hoff Institute prize for his finalist entry in the prestigious Geelong Acquisitive Print Award. Paterson has also undertaken a residency in Mooste, Estonia.

The work on display was incorporated in Paterson’s solo exhibition, Campfire stories, shown at Melbourne’s Port Jackson Press during July 2015.

The artist explains, “Storytelling serves as a way of understanding, explaining and reinterpreting our world. It helps create communities and teaches morals. Stories express our dreams and desires; they facilitate communication as well as entertain.”

“Campfire stories is an allegorical look at how storytelling can shape identity and a sense of belonging. Two boys occupy an unearthly expanse, regaling each other with tales of adventure, idealised futures and shared concerns. Campfire stories examines a romanticised queer youth and looks at the power of storytelling as a way of recontextualising and constructing new narratives.”

The Lambda process uses RGB lasers to expose photographic paper which is then developed using traditional photochemical processes.
