If you haven’t visited the stunning Tweed Art Gallery before, you’ll be amazed by the large, modern facility displaying first-rate exhibitions.
Surrounded by beautiful gardens and lawns and offering panoramic views of the Tweed River, the Gallery was established on this site in 2004, and was extended in 2006. The prestigious Margaret Olley Art Centre was completed in May 2014 and is already a renowned tourist destination.
The Gallery offers six exhibition spaces, a workshop and education area, a Gallery Café with indoor/outdoor seating, a Gallery Shop and research library. The Gallery has disabled facilities, including a lift and set down area, undercover parking and a bus parking area.
You’ll enjoy a program of vibrant exhibitions, which change approximately every eight weeks. The exhibition spaces host a vibrant program of historical and contemporary touring exhibitions of national significance, alongside curated exhibitions of established national and regional artists. Our program includes the $20,000 Olive Cotton Award for photographic portraiture. The Gallery’s collection includes a world class collection of portraits representing Australians from all walks of life.
You might like to participate in the Gallery’s exciting variety of programs including public events, concerts, exhibition openings, artists’ talks, demonstrations and workshops which cater for all ages.
