Tweed River Art Gallery brings out its dead

MURWILLUMBAH South Post Office has Hundreds of international artworks arriving for the upcoming A Book about death exhibition at Tweed River Art Gallery.

"We have art work coming from five continents across the world including, Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia," Northern Rivers co-curator Heather Matthew said.

It is the 27th exhibition of this international mail art phenomenon and the first time that A Book about death has come to Australia. It will open on October 18 at the Tweed River Art Gallery.

The exhibition is a mail out project to do with death.

"It's an unbound book about death which pays tribute to the late Ray Johnson who was an active artist in New York in the 1960's."

This is a democratic exhibition in that any artist from across the world can submit post card size art work for the show and all works received will go into the final exhibition.

"Death is such a universal subject. It happens everywhere, everyday," Ms Matthews said.

This is an opportunity to discuss death in a safe and compassionate manner.

"Local artists are encouraged to get on board; this is your chance to be hung at the beautiful Tweed River art gallery".

Submissions close on September 20. Information on how to submit work can be found at abadaustralia.blogspot.com
