GLASS in all its shattered and glittering forms will be the subject of a new exhibition in Murwillumbah.

Entitled Tour de Force: In Case of Emergency Break Glass, the display will open on Friday and run until May 6 at Tweed River Art Gallery.

A sugar crystal skull and cross bones, body bits in specimen jars and a glimpse of the Ice Age are just some of the highlights.

Acting gallery director Anne Schardin said she was thrilled the gallery had been chosen to host the touring exhibition, which features work from eight artists.

"Each of these practitioners are world-renowned in their practice and produce stunning, challenging works," Ms Schardin said.

"I am sure our visitors will enjoy this exhibition."

Works are by artists Timothy Horn, Tom Moore, Ian Mowbray, Trish Roan, Jacqueline Gropp, Deb Jones, the late Neil Roberts and Nicholas Folland.

Opening celebrations are planned for this Friday, with a preview from curator Megan Bottari at 5pm and official opening at 6pm.
