Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre
Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre is housed in a large, modern, architecturally award-winning building with views to Wollumbin/Mount Warning. The Gallery was relocated to this site in 2004 and extended in 2006. The Margaret Olley Art Centre opened as a purpose-built extension in 2014.
The Gallery’s seven exhibition spaces present a dynamic program of historical to contemporary touring exhibitions, alongside exhibitions showcasing the work of regional, national and international artists presented exclusively at the Tweed Regional Gallery. The program includes the AUD20,000 Olive Cotton Award for photographic portraiture. An extensive collection of portraits representing Australia’s diverse community is a highlight of the Gallery’s permanent collection.
Visitors can participate in a range of complementary public programs and workshops catering for all ages and abilities. The Gallery also includes a workshop and education space, research library, the Gallery Shop and the Gallery Café with indoor and outdoor seating.
The Margaret Olley Art Centre (MOAC) celebrates the career, life and legacy of Margaret Olley, Australia’s most celebrated painter of still life and interiors. MOAC combines exhibitions, interactives and the permanent re-creation of areas of Olley’s famous home studio. MOAC is complemented by the Nancy Fairfax Artist in Residence Studio.
